Project 365, Day 38: Toy Voyagers

Day 38: Toy Voyagers, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

I need a new hobby like I need a hole in the head. But when I saw cathepsut's post on Toy Voyagers last week, I had to check it out. Toy Voyagers are small toys that are sent out into the world, to journey around visiting people and places. Then, their journeys are photographed and journaled at the website. They're just like Geocaching travel bugs, only without the hassle of looking for a cache that will hold them.

Since this seems like a fun thing to do with Connor, I created an account that we can both use: Raptor&Rex (recycling our our old Geocaching handle, which I've always liked). Pictured above are our first three Toy Voyagers, who are just about ready to get sent out into the world to have some fun:

Fluffy the Owl

Cody Penguin

Stomp the T. rex

If you would like to host one of them, just comment here! They don't have an itinerary yet, and would love to visit LJ friends. (The only requirement would be to sign up for a free account at Toy Voyagers, so you could post a photo or two to the travelog page, and then be willing to send the TV along to the next host).

Next, I'm looking forward to hosting a few TVs from other people. We're signed up to host a cute little owl in the next couple of months. I'm sure if I look through the forums, I could find a couple of other toys who would love to come and visit with us. :) We would definitely show them a good time.

(They also have a Flickr group, and an LJ: lil_toyvoyager).

LOL! It is TOTALLY Hedwig, but I promised Connor he could name some of the Toy Voyagers, and this is what happened. (It's the reason I'll probably never let him choose a name for an actual pet - I don't want a dog named Fluffy or Mopsy or something else that Connor might choose. I don't mind so much when it's a toy, though). :D

Heh. You'll be at this point soon enough. D is talking now, isn't he? *giggles*

He ain't naming my toys collectibles!!!!

He's getting there. But still not onto to verbalizing as well as I'd like and a long way off from sentences. I've been told that bilingual children sometimes take longer than others. Still, he mumbles as well as his has ever done, so he has that going for him!!!
