The restaurant is open. Anyone for a beer?

The restaurant is open. Anyone for a beer?

Have you ever had your floor space taken over by a town that appeared from nowhere?  The kind of place that is populated entirely by animals who walk & talk, have occupations, and lead busy lives.  The kind of town that is ruled by your kids.

This type of town planning has been taking over my floors for years.  Sometimes it is a little animal town with everything an animal could need including homes, restaurants, schools and play areas.

On other occasions, the town appears for Polly Pocket.  But Polly’s town is usually a lot more self-indulgent with space for clothes shops, yachts, karaoke stage and a pink limo. And as for the Sylvanians, don’t get me started on that lot. If you need it, the Sylvanians have it!

The endless suburban sprawl sometimes extends to several rooms in our home.  Transport is no problem.  The townspeople have a choice of bus, limo, cars, yacht or jet ski to travel between rooms towns.  What looks like empty floor space always has a purpose.

“You can’t stand there, that’s the swimming pool!”

“Beeeeep! You are blocking the bus. Get off the road.”

“Please can we leave it here for one more day?”

Usually they do get to leave it there for one more day. And maybe that is just because I would have loved to have had play-sets just like this when I was small.
