Necessity is the Mother of Invention (or how a toddler deals with having no Donkey toy)

Clever Toddler is Clever!
Emily has a Shrek toy that she got in a Happy Meal back when the last movie was out in theaters. She loves the Shrek movies, and she had been complaining to me that there was no Donkey to go with her Shrek yesterday.

This morning I was going into the kitchen to get her a banana and I glanced down and noticed that the Shrek DVD with Donkey on it was sitting in her dollhouse. Apparently she thought this would be a good substitute for an actual Donkey toy.

I sometimes think she may be too clever for her own good! But I think I'm going to have to see if I can find her an actual Donkey toy now to go with her Shrek.


  1. I love how kids can substitute like that. :D

  2. It was quite funny, though now the disc is really scratched :(
