Birthday boy preview

Our little r has a birthday coming up in a few days, and in true Big R style, a gift was handed over a tad bit early.  Hard not to when the birthday shopping happens with the birthday boy in tow.  We got him a couple of other gifts that we know he will equally love, but this has got to be one of the coolest finds we've had yet.  Just look at that face!!!  We saw this in the store and literally could not help ourselves - little r just had to have it.  Kid didn't let go of it until we pried it out of his hands so he could walk through the front door.

This is a gift ala grandma style, meaning that it is so similar to my mom's jeep and horse trailer that the next time he visits his eyes will pop out of his head with excitement.  This toy company makes realistic cars and tractors, and it is uncanny how great they mimic the real deal. Mom, they even have California license plates on the jeep!  And even though the top is hard plastic, the design is crinkled to look just like a soft top.  The steering wheel moves the front wheels, the back door opens, the top comes down, and the back seat comes out.  The hood even opens to give a peek at the engine (the only thing missing is oil running across the inside of the hood from driving on those crazy washboard roads to mom's house - haha, not sure I will ever forget that jeep story).

And then there's the horse trailer and the trusty new horse. He hasn't come up with a name for the horse yet, but the lucky horse has already received numerous kisses and trailer rides through the house.
This is the coolest toy EVER.  And it's especially neat because it will remind him of grandma's house.  I can't wait until Wednesday when he gets the other gifts.  Two-year old boys are just too much fun...
