Mr Sparkles makes some friends
I am afraid Mr Sparkles may have to go into retirement. I had planned on taking him to Amsterdam but he is looking a little worse for wear after being squashed into bags. I also found him under a pile of scrapbook supplies which didn't help. I am thinking of making a new one but then Mr Sparkles hasn't seen much of the world yet and I would feel a little guilty at leaving him behind.
Timewarden, speaking from experience a parent telling you that it's only a film doesn't help. When we were little my sister and I used to watch episodes of Dr Who with the Daleks and then we wouldn't be able to sleep later. My dad got so exasperated he even threatened no more Dr Who. Children's imaginations work overtime generally, especially when they are given a scary image. Logic never comes into it. I would have hated to be dragged out part way through a film too but this child was a little young.
