Angry Birds

March 14, 2012 9:00 am

I think I am the only one left in this world that does not play Angry Birds. I tried it but I just don't get the hype. However, my kids are addicted to it like junkies on crack. I blame my mom, who is also an addict. In fact, that's how the boys learned about the game in the first place. One day they came home from her house chattering away non stop about birds and pigs and eggs and could they please get the app please please please? And while Soren doesn't talk much his language is advancing steadily as he tries to communicate his love for this game. He makes the cutest freaking noises when he mimics the birds and pigs. he can say egg and uh oh. And when he strings them all together it's an orchestra of words and sounds, but you know exactly what he's saying.


Now each night J is stuck trying to unlock new levels for Soren so he can play.


After seeing that this phenomenon was not going to die fast, I mentioned to J that it would be cool to get some stuffed animals of the Angry Birds. My reasoning behind this was that, instead of playing on the Ipad all day, the boys could make their own real life angry birds. So J found some and they arrived yesterday evening. As I had hoped, within minutes the boys had pulled out their blocks and started making their own Angry Bird Level.s I was able to snag a snapshot before they knocked it down:





I want to see how long this will go. I'm thinking if this really takes off for more than a week, I may go ahead and buy more blocks and more of these stuffed animals. J just might get his Ipad back!
