There’s a regular event that is always guaranteed to get my Little Man excited. It’s a highlight of his week. What is it, you’re wondering? A toddler class, a trip out, a fun activity? Erm, nope. It’s bin day!
He loves helping us empty the bins ready for collection and then when he hears the refuse trucks rolling round at about 6.30 on a Thursday morning, his little face lights up and he dashes to the window to take a look.
I’m not too sure what the attraction is, but he is enthralled by it. He’s also thrilled when he spots a bin lorry while we’re out and about.
This all being the case, when I saw a toy recycling truck recently (in the sale as an added bonus!) I knew I had to get it….
Oh my, has this been popular! So many hours of play and fun has been had with this. It’s the first thing he grabs when he gets up and it will never be far from him during the day. With flashing lights, sound effects and a bin where you can pour the contents into the truck, it has it all, and he has revelled in it.
I love watching my boy play, listening to his imagination taking over as he chats away, and it’s wonderful to find something that he connects with so totally. Good old rubbish!
