Toy Testers Wanted

I have been thinking (which is never good) about all the toys I have made and would like children to use them. My wife and I have talked about opening our house to let kids play with them. Now I do not want this to turn into a free for all so there are some guidelines.
  • Kids ages from 3 to 8 years and potty trained. (I change enough diapers)
  • I can only allow 6 kids at a time and 2 kids maximum per family.
  • I am going to exclude kids related to me because they see all the toys I make and benefit from me making toys (This my change)
  • Parents are responsible for dropping off and picking up their children on time.
  • I will be taking pictures and posting them on my blog. I will not mention names on my blog.
After talking with my wife, we would like to do this every fifth Saturday from 10:00-12:00. We would provide a pizza lunch. My e-mail is on my face book account so please e-mail me if you are interested (I may need your phone number) and I will contact you by Wednesday if your child is selected. We are looking at doing this Saturday, January 30th.
I don't know if I am going to have first come first in or randomly chosen but if this works out I plan on doing more. Kids who have not been over will have first priority over kids that have been here before so everyone who wants will have an opportunity.

For those kids ages 9-13 who feel deprived not coming over I am looking at starting a wood working class. I have not put all the details together because it is a little more work to teach woodworking.


  1. bummer, Aiden would have loved to help out, okay maybe he doesn't even know the difference, but I do :)

  2. so, I guess Wesley will not even be considered. :-( He would have so much fun though! :-p Cute idea! I hope it gets a great turn out!

  3. Nice. Eliminate your 2 potty trained and adorable nieces. I see how it is.

  4. How often do they see and play with the stuff I make? This is why I took out family members.
