I can't help it. I've turned EVILBOY into a toy-collecting nerdlet.
(and I kind of like it).
I find real joy digging through people's old unwanted belongings to find action figures for my kid in thrift stores. I have banned myself from eBay, ever since the whole blue ranger motorcycle incident of 2012..but we shall leave that story for another time.
Tonight as we stopped into a thrift store on the way home, EVILBOY pointed out a shelf that he wanted to put his power rangers on. My eight year old asked for a shelf. To display his collection. I was elated! My inner Martha Stewart was going wild with ideas.
I ended up putting "Sticky Tack" under each action figure's foot and standing them up on the shelves. I had EVILBOY tell me which ones go together (it was actually a very hard task!) and we made a pretty cool display!
I can't get over how grown up this makes his bedroom look though. He has his very own collection of something. Even if it's a collection of violent little men in spandex, it's still pretty cool!
