Part of our plan to stay downsized was to avoid buying more stuff. It seems obvious, right?

Get rid of crap. Downsizing has worked wonders for us. It just seemed an insurmountable frenzy of consumerism: A goddamned belching volcano of tacky, awful, soulless plastic crap for babies.

You might be able to tell, I have rather strong feelings about this. And now we would have to fill our space back up. It actually pissed me off. We would withstand the pressure. The only plastic stuff I was excited about was getting Legos, and that is still years down the road.

All the other crap could bite my ass. We have three and a half month old twin boys. Their eyes follow me around the room. I can see them actually starting to figure things out.

They are starting to need…toys. I realize I may be sounding snotty about all this.

Or they could be stimulated by a can of creamed corn. But yes, I get that the babies need something to keep them entertained. Right now, that has been me. And I can only be in one place at one time. Last week, I boiled over my oatmeal three times because I had two fussy babies, and I made the mistake of also getting hungry at the same time.

I was not going to go to a big box store and get a tacky play gym. I began to think about how stupid easy it would be to make something myself.

I got some PVC joints from the hardware store. I got some wooden dowels. I got some enamel paint. I got four dowels at 3 feet long, and 4 dowels at 2 feet long for the legs. The idea was to make a cube, so that both boys had enough room on either side to keep them entertained without feeling cramped.

And it had a big stupid empty space in the middle. I thought the empty space in the middle would be a waste. I could have secured the whole structure with bungee cords in the middle, but this whole project was already low rent.

I was trying to avoid full-on trashy. I figured it would be better to maybe make it as a cross. I already needed different paint because the paint I bought at a goddamned unnamed big box craft store sucked. I hate goddamned craft stores.What a brilliant idea! As a neuroscience graduate, I have to say it bugs me all the stuff about these plastic toys.

If you give your child a few simple pieces, they will make their own toys out of them – e.g. a box is a box, a hat, a spaceship, something to tow, something to push. Toggle navigation Toggle navigation. facebook twitter you tube Instagram.
