MEET UNCLE VAK
The greatest toy in the whole world is...
I feel like I have been searching my whole life for this type of thing - something that will entertain my 2 year old for hours at a time and stimulate his imagination. It's only been 3 months since Luke received the Geotrax set from my parents for Christmas and I honestly can't remember how we spent our time before this lovely toy entered our lives.
Although Geotrax is just a basic train set, you can keep adding on to it by purchasing more track sets, trains and buildings. Now when I feel the urge to buy a DVD for my kids I just invest the money into more Geotrax stuff. In 3 months we have added 2 trains and 2 track sets to our original set, and I don't regret it one bit. These toys are very durable and well-made. I'm a little worried because Erik and I like playing with them too. (We're obviously not the only adults who like Geotrax. Check out this You Tube video of a great track layout.)
Luke loves his Geotrax trains so much that he sneaks out to play with them almost every night after we have put him to bed. When I want to take a nap in the afternoon, Luke keeps himself occupied by playing with his trains. Just in case I have not been clear, these trains are an excellent purchase.
His original Geotrax set came with these little people. I realized last month that Luke was calling one of them "Uncle Vak." I assumed it was this guy -
Then I thought it might be one of these guys -
Meet Luke's Uncle Vak -
When I asked him if this Uncle Vak was a boy or a girl, he said, "She's a boy!"
