Who Needs Toys! – My Captured Moment

Though some of you may have already seen this photo this week via other social media – I just couldn’t let it pass without mentioning it as a captured moment.

There really is no point spending so much money on toys for kids these days when the thing they love the most is the box it comes in!!

I received some large items this week, but rather than binning the rather large box – I knew it would put a beaming smile across a certain couple of little peoples faces.

And it did.

I had to do a little bit of manoeuvring with the help of Mikey in order to actually get it into the play room – but once I called the girls through – we knew why we’d gone to all the trouble.

Holly came bounding up to me and gave me the biggest bear hug saying….

‘Oh mummy – thank you so, so much – we love it’

It was just as if we’d spent a fortune on something they’d been wishing for, for years!

Then, they moved in and made it home.  I gave them some cushions and blankets and they played happily for ages!

Two very content little people!

You see – who needs toys eh?

I think I know what to get them for Christmas now too!

    Exactly Steph, who’s needs expensive toys when you can have hours of fun with a massive cardboard box? Love this shot, it really tells a great story. Thank you so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xxx

    I did see this picture on Instagram but my internet connect kept going before I could leave a comment. This is a fantastic picture and it just goes to show that it is often the little things eh?!? (Or big massive ones in the case of boxes ha!) This is a lovely captured moment xx

    Tell me about it. We had bought so many new things for the twins for the house move and all they do is follow me around all the time and want to play with anything that isn’t a toy!! LOVE this photo so much 🙂 So funny! Jess x #mycapturedmoment
