Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows where I share the proof that shock horror- my children are actually able to share!
Until now asking my children to share anything has often resulted in a full blown tantrum including screaming, crying, stomping and the odd door being slammed. Thankfully as the kids have grown older they have learnt that spitting the dummy isn’t particularly effective in promoting friendship or play.
E was rather lucky to receive a Furby Connect from Santa for Christmas. This rather bright pink, fluffy, noisy little Monster has since become a firm favourite with both of the kids and is so well used that the damn thing requires new batteries almost every twenty-four hours.
After spending a small fortune on powering said Furby we started using rechargeable batteries in an attempt to cost save on feeding the power-hungry little beast.
We were expecting J to be so taken with his much-wanted Swegway that he wouldn’t notice his little sister’s gifts which in comparison to J’s swegway amounted to much less in terms of cost. How wrong we were as it seems all J now wants is a sodding Furby of his own in blue of course.
I have agreed that J can either save up some of his own money to buy a Furby of his own or he can wait until his birthday in May. Either way, I am now keeping my eyes peeled for any upcoming deals on these battery munching little sods.
Despite the odd scream, E has been really understanding towards her brother and has allowed him to share her beloved Be-Doh (E’s choice of name for her Furby). She will happily snuggle up with her brother and they will each take turns in holding the Furby whilst the other uses the IPad app to interact with Be-Doh.
Over time Be-Doh has become increasingly interactive by singing and dancing to entertain the children. Although how many times I can stomach listening to “Welcome To My House” before I physically super glue the Furby’s sleep mask to its face forever I am unsure.
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
