Boy Toys: Part Deux

Happy Fatherhood Friday!

If you need to catch up, check out the original Boy Toys post. It's a quick read.

So earlier this week we were at gymnastics, and Bab-E Brother was again playing with his favorite car.

Nerds that we are, Mom-E and I decided to do a few "experiments" by putting various "drivers" in the car, to see his reaction.

We enlisted the help of four "contestants": a dinosaur, a miniature blonde Barbie, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and, of course, the rainbow-haired My Little Pony.

Our "control" group was the My Little Pony, which, as per last week, was immediately flung out of the car by its mane.

Here's the results of our different "experiments":
1. Dinosaur - allowed to drive the car
2. TMNT - allowed to drive the car
3. Barbie - also allowed to drive (apparently he prefers blondes).
4. Dino + TMNT + Barbie - all allowed to share the ride
5. Dino+ TMNT + My Little Pony - ONLY My Little Pony is tossed out of the car (NO JOKE!)
6. TMNT + Barbie + MLP - AGAIN, MLP got the boot!
7. All 4 - figurines spontaneously falling out of car due to lack of space. Bab-E Brother, growing weary of our "game", dumps out all figures and returns to playing with an empty car.

Oh well, it was funny while it lasted. And we can say with great confidence that Bab-E Brother will NOT want a My Little Pony-themed 2nd birthday.

Have a good weekend,


  1. Funny experiment. Wish I could have watched. Baby Brother definitely has an aversion to MLP. See ya tonight.

  2. As a real life science nerd, my interpretation is that Bab-E brother has no truck with "boy" and "girl" toy classifications, but he knows that horses can't drive cars! Smart guy!!
