When Baa-chan heard about Ebi-kun breaking his arm she had a chat with him on the phone and told him she was sending some money, he was to get get a toy, a book and some strawberries with the money. We are all clueless what the starwberries have to do with it. Anyway, it just so happened that the day before the phone conversation a kumon catalogue had arrived and Ebi-kun had been drooling over one or two things in there, one of them was this maze and since Baa-chan was paying for it we ordered it. (I usually squirrel away any money she sends for him). The coloured pieces slot into the holes so you can make up your own maze, it also comes with some boards that you put into the base then you have to find the right sized pieces to make the maze. Although he found it a bit tricky wen he could only use one arm, now it is easier and he has played with it quite a lot.

Ebi-kun says this about it
I like it, I have to think hard about how to do it and which way to go, I have to use my brain and it's fun!
We are a household of sick puppies at the moment although Ebi-kun seems to have shaken his cough and cold, I went to bed with a slight fever and I am producing more snot than I know what to do with and it feels like my head is going to explode. Daddy-ebi crawled out of bed and went to work today Blahhhhh. I hate being sick. We also have to go back to the doctors today to get Ebi-kuns arm x-rayed, I am hoping it will have the all clear. We have been to the hospital more in the last 4 weeks with him than we have the rest of his 4 years, I am blaming the excessive amount of time in the hospital for our colds too - best way to get sick, hang around in an over heated hospital full of sick people, so, fingers crossed that today is the last day for quite some time.
