Everyone Needs a Little Moxy

1.03.2008


in there life, right? About a month or so before Christmas we went to the toy store to kind of feel out what Zoey's interests were and to get some hints from her for gifts, etc. It's also just something that we do from time to time cuz she loves getting to play with the Thomas and Friends play table that they have set up there. Anyways, on this particular visit she discovered Ugly Dolls. I wandered away from her at one point during our toy store visit and when I came back to the train table she was parked on the floor a couple feet away with about a dozen of these strange little creatures surrounding her and of course the scene wouldn't have been complete without her making the little voices for each and every one of them (which she was doing very nicely). This one (the one that Santa brought to our home this year) is named Moxy and this is her story: Moxy’s got a lot of moxy. She’s a real get up and go Ugly, with far more energy than her older brother OX. Why the big antennas? Moxy uses them to pick up signals from all over. Just the other day, OX gave the signal for them to remove any chocolate based substances from the fridge. Moxy is very curious about YOU. What’s up with you? Why don’t your toes point towards each other? Please discuss.

Yep, toys with an attitude. Gotta love it! Though I think that the one thing that I can appreciate most is that Zoey is most concerned that Moxy's teeth are yellow due to not brushing appropriately. So, at least she is motivated to keep up with her brushing now!

Moxy is adorable! I love that your daughter is worried about her yellow teeth. Maybe I need to get one to park in my kids bathroom as a reminder! LOL!

Unless she tries brushing Moxy's poor little face off trying to be a good friend ;0)

Oh Ugly Dolls are my favorite! We only have Babo, but I'd collect them all if I could! (My daughter is a little less enthusiastic about them - she prefers Barbie.) Oh, and I love what you did with kit up above - wonderful work!
