Linnea will be five soon, and Emer is two and a half. So today’s trip to Eclectic Games was more interesting than they were when both children were much younger.

Linnea played with Chocolate Fix and did the first six puzzles quickly enough to surprise the proprietor, and Emer played with a Rattlesnake game involving magnets. Magnets are marvelous toys.

I was interested enough by Linnea’s concentration on Chocolate Fix that I really want to buy it for her, now. But will I wait and give it as a birthday present, or just get it right now for her immediate gratification?!

They also had a go at learning to use a vending machine, and Linnea condescended to write some letters on a card for me, though they didn’t make much sense to me. (AXIA, if anyone is wondering. She really likes an X).
