Edward's favourite TV show is Playschool. It's been an Australian institution for over 40 years.
One of the charming things about Playschool, from an adult's view, is the use of everyday items in children's play. There's lots of pretending that, say, a kitchen colander is a knight's helmet. Watching Playschool has helped me to use everyday things in imaginative ways for Ed's play.
Ed has a couple of toy farm horses (named "Neddy" and "Nellie") who have a toy horse trailer. One day he asked me what horses like to eat and drink. I told him carrots and water. Ed thought we had better feed and water the horses, so I made some carrots out of folded paper and a water trough out of an upturned bottle cap.
Ed thought that was just fine.
This evening on his way to bed Edward picked up this plastic hair comb and said, "This is my electric shaver."
He's seen me using an electric shaver to tonsor my noggin.
