- Lady on the bus next to me: Tell me again- what are you not going to do in daycare today?
- Little boy: I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.
- Lady: And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?
- Boy: It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.
- Lady: Do you want to be a Sith?
- Boy: No! I am Obi-Wan!
Tiny Princess Thor has acquired a little brother! Tiny Prince Loki, age six months, made his (very brief) debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 on Friday and promptly stole and gnawed on Thor’s hammer. Also he met a Big Prince Loki who he was not so sure about. (Thank you, kind Loki costumer, for indulging us.)
Tiny Prince Loki’s costume is based on Thor and the Warriors Four, when everyone got turned into babies. It’s basically a green onesie with gold accents, a gold headband with wee little horns, and gold cuffs. When he’s a little bigger, I might make it a little more detailed, assuming Thor hasn’t outgrown her dress by then.
Update, July 2014: Tiny Princess Thor has acquired a baby brother, Tiny Prince Loki!
Tiny Princess Captain America finally outgrew her dress, so this Halloween, it was time for her long-promised Tiny Princess Thor! I think she might like this one better…it has a sparkly cape, after all. Also a hammer. (“What do you hit with the hammer at daycare, Tiny Princess Thor?” “*pause* I don’t know.” “Nothing! You hit nothing with the hammer!”) (She did not, in fact, hit anything with the hammer at daycare. Though she did cry when they had the kids change out of their costumes after their Halloween party, because she wanted to keep wearing her dress.)
Oh, and Big Tiny Princess Thor and Big Tiny Princess Captain America have a message for Iron Man…

I made my three-year-old niece her first convention/Halloween costume this year. If you ask her who she is dressed as, she’ll reply, “Tiny Princess Captain America!”
On Halloween, we discovered that if you point to a kid in a Captain America costume and ask her who he’s dressed as, she will also reply, “Tiny Princess Captain America!”
ETA: I just added a post about how to make Tiny Princess Captain America!
Star Wars? Fake!
A young boy approached the front desk. He comes into the library regularly and is ahead of his age in maturity. He wanted to know where he could find Star Wars books. We have quite a few fiction but also non-fiction Star Wars books. The non-fiction can be about the history and making of Star Wars.
Me: “Are you interested in fiction or non-fiction?”
Boy [long pause, with serious expression]: ”You do realize that Star Wars is fake right?”
Anakin and Padme were reunited today at Star Wars Weekends. ;)
Last month we shared photos of a fantastic Tauntaun rocking horse and today the latest in Star Wars-related rocking horses is this awesome AT-AT Rocker. It was designed and made by Jen Yates, creator of EPBOT and Cakewrecks.
