cars 2 doubledecker bus, an early birthday present!

 cars, toy cars, my favorite thing, toys, collections, gifts

mum knows how much i love lightning mcqueen + his gang. we are actually collecting these guys + so far i’ve got about 9 of them. i am very happy to have a brand new addition to my collection + this time mum got me this big cars 2 double decker bus. it doubles as a transporter for the little diecast + a home for them, too, when i am not playing with them. it can accommodate 7 cars, but it was a good thing guido is so tiny he can easily share a spot with his good pal, luigi! 😀 the bigger diecast red also won’t fit, so i just let him sit on the open air top whenever we are playing.

this toy is not much like the other cars in my collection since it is made of plastic. mum always reminds me to be careful with it + refrain from dropping it as it might get broken easily, but so far, after a couple of bumps + falls, it is still in one piece, so i have to say it is made of good quality plastic! i will just be mindful not to drop it too often, though! 🙂

cars, toy cars, my favorite thing, toys, collections, gifts

if you are a fan of the movie, you will see the doubledecker bus in action when the world grand prix had its final leg in london, they tower over other cars in the streets of this lovely city. i actually dream of riding a real doubledecker bus one day! 🙂

mum said this is a very advanced birthday gift! mum really knows what i like, i simply love it. can you tell from the photo? 😉

hello boys + girls! it is time again for another round of kids in doodles. today am going to share with you one of my most favorite cartoon characters ~ the minions!

we simply love the movie despicable me, i think i must have seen it a couple dozens of times + we simply adore the minions. if i can have a real one at home i bet mum will also agree that we get one! 😀 we are so looking forward to watching the movie sequel this month + when we found out about the free minion toys at mcdonalds’, mum + i set out to collect them as soon as we got the chance.

i first got tim giggling, tom google grabber and jerry breakdancing on our very first minion hunt. we made it a habit to drop by the local mcdonalds’ after my playschool so that we can buy + collect all 9 toys available. the next ones i got are the 2 purple evil minions, chomper + noise maker. tito ken got them when he brought mcdonalds’ takeaway one sunday we visited them at home.

the second week of our minion hunt adventure started with dave gadget grabber and stuart light-up grabber. after a couple of days we got stuart babbler grabber. it took us a couple of days +  a visit to both local mcdonalds’ to get the last missing minion, but it turned out they were no longer available. good thing dad was able to get me one in a faraway branch.

One among the most wasteful elements of acquiring furnishings is whenever they come from a huge selection of even thousands of miles away. When your sofa has traveled 1200 miles from your factory to obtain for you, even though the sofa is manufactured from sustainable or recycled materials, that makes it a under green choice. Consider to order from factories and merchants which might be close to you and ask the salesperson exactly where the sofa was manufactured. If whatsoever achievable, produce a choice to order local.

It sure is high time we all consider switching to greener and more earth-friendly alternatives as much as we can. Not only will they be safer as they come with less or no harmful chemicals that may harm little kids like me, but we would also be doing Mother Nature a great favor when we stop patronizing those products that have ingredients that are harmful to the environment.
