Who wants a rocking horse when you can have a rocking snail?
Upon moseying through Three Lil Monkeys last week, I laid eyes on the ol’ snail and my heart went pitter patter.
Look at the colors! The wood! It’s so charming!
Pretty darn adorable, no?
Is Bennett anywhere near being readying for this thing? I dunno. Probably not. But considering the fact that he seems to be an over-acheiver like I am, I’m bracing myself for his progress and development! (Just yesterday he was rocking on his hands and knees! Eeee!)
Now, according to this website (from where I got the above picture), the modern version of this snail is named Sandy and is “on sale” for $89.98, down from the original $159.99.
Considering the fact that I have a used and abused rocking snail, I still think I got it for a steal at just $14.99. The internet tells me that Sandy usually comes with “happy tunes” and “educational songs” thanks to her battery-operated genetics. I could NOT. BE. HAPPIER. that my rocking snail came just as quiet as a mouse with the former battery pack surgically removed.
I mean, come on, can’t a rocking snail just ROCK anymore?! Does E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G have to be sOoOoOoOo multi-functional? Can’t Bennett just use his, oh I don’t know, imagination on the rocking snail? If he desperately needs background music to the rocking snail movie that’s playing in his mind, can’t we utilize some singing, humming or perhaps even a CD? (But, oh yeah, it does have a squeaker in one antenna. That’s ok. Every vehicle needs a good, ol’ fashioned horn of some sort. Outta the way! Rocking Snail is blazing a trail!)
And, no, his name is not Sandy. His name is Rocking Snail. Took me all week to come up with that. Genius, I know.
