A big part of my baby play hinges upon size; the size of the things surrounding me. I think that a lot of us have the idea that in order to feel smaller and younger, our "stuff" should be bigger than normal size. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense: if I am a baby, then the items I use should be proportionately bigger than normal. I have often toyed with the idea of making larger sized baby toys, but of course, I haven't the room, materials or skills to do so.
I think the first time I thought about this was when I got my first diaper bag. It was a Pooh design and had lots of things for a new baby. This included a rattle that I was very excited about, until I actually held it in my hands. It was so small compared to my hands that it kind of ruined the illusion of my being a small baby. And since, I've run into that problem many times with things like bottles and pacifiers and such. But it's the toys that really get me. I feel like the toys I play with should be the same size to me as they would be to an actual baby, and there's really not much out there.
So, as AB's, we now have such wonderful things available to us as diapers, plastic pants, clothing, cribs and other furniture, all at sizes appropriate to ours. But it begs the question: what would you like to see "biggified" in relation to your AB play?
I have a whole list of things in my head, but I don't want to take everybody's ideas. So I'll start things off by admitting that I would love to have a large rattle, like the old style "ball on a stick" kind, you know? Also, as I mentioned in another thread, I'd love to have a big coloring book. It would be a little bigger than a road atlas, and would come with big ol' crayons too.
As a side note, if anyone knows where to get stuff that people mention in this thread, please shout out.
Thanks for listening,
