Merry Christmas! (Or the Story of 491 Pieces)

Dear Four-Year-Old Monkey,

We love that you set your heart on this amazing Playmobil school instead of the shockingly pink Playmobil princess castle you raved about all year. The art class is adorable and the science lab is totally awesome. The fact that you can put stuff in the kids' backpacks is uber-neat.

However, you neglected to mention to Santa's elves that this amazing toy contained 491 pieces.

491 pieces.

We elves suspect we have come down with carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of Playmobil's sadistic toy manufacturing practices. We kindly request that next year you ask for a stuffed animal. Or perhaps bribe us elves with excellent vintages of red wine and/or gift certificates for massages.

Merry Christmas!

Yours truly,
Santa's Elves

You're a good elf! It's hard to be a mama elf sometimes. Have a wonderful Christmas! Roland

WOW, you are a wonderful elf and it sounds like there will be a very happy little monkey for all your trouble. You deserve a break. Merry Christmas.

Four hundred and ninety one pieces!!!
Remind me never to get anything like that into my house.

And here's hoping you have a great 2011.

Hahah!! Man, I'm glad I wasn't born an elf. Kids these days just get more and more spoiled. Why, when I was a kid, I was happy with a coloring book and a box of crayons ;) Happy New Year, Stephanie! Hope you had a great holiday.

Some assembly required...yikes! Hope your Christmas still stays merry:)

You earned your wine.

Back when mine were the same age, I had to assemble a slippery slide in the dead of night on Christmas Eve. Santa's elf said naughty words.
