Dear Jack: Putting the Hamster in Your Beyblade Stadium

10 years, 7 months.

Dear Jack,

As you get older, it’s only natural that certain toys become less relevant; or at least find a new purpose in entertaining you.

As for your Beyblade Stadium which was the main even a couple of years ago; it has been repurposed as a running track and/or playground for our hamster, Alpha.

He seems to appreciate the change of scenery and environment as well. It’s interesting to watch him become obsessed with trying to rub his scent on it, but it doesn’t work since it’s plastic; as opposed to the wood shavings in his aquarium.

Now we know- Beyblade Stadiums make good hamster playgrounds!

Love,

Daddy

Dear Jack: Combining Beyblades and Jenga Blocks Was a Good Idea

7 years, 9 months.

I didn’t even know what a Beyblade was until about 2 weeks ago. But now you have 3 of them.

And this past weekend you literally spent hours spinning these little propelled tops across the kitchen floor, attempting to crash down Jenga towers that you would build.

It’s the kind of self-invented activity I love to see on a Sunday afternoon. And even when you finally got ready to change things up, you learned that the Jenga blocks make perfect dominoes.

Your sister even took notice and decided to make a bed for some of her smaller stuffed animals.

Good thing Mommy suggested you go through the closet and find a game to play. You made the original Jenga even better!

Dear Jack,

Love,

Daddy
