Anyway, I bought a kit that lets us make those "stick-on-window-pane thingies" (just what do you call them?!?!) at a toy fair. My first attempt at making Percy (the small green engine who loves to deliver mail) failed terribly. Terence said my thingie wasn't thick enough so it tore when we tried to peel it off the kit.
James (the big red, cheeky and vain engine) is the result of both our efforts. There was a lot of tears (yes, tears, Kai cried) as well as fighting over what's right or wrong, where to do put the thingie out to dry, whether the paint is thick enough etc. But it was still a labour of love.
I asked Kai to pose with James, and he actually understood what I was talking about.
Terence is contemplating making Thomas next. We'll let you know soon.
