Under the table which sees all kinds of work taking place, another type of work goes on, hidden by large sheets from the dressing up box.

It is both a privelege and an honour to watch his inventing and his play. It is awe-inspiring to see what worlds can be made out of sticking tape and paperclips. He never fails to surprise, impress and inspire me with his imagination.

And it goes to prove, if any proof were needed, the best toys are in fact free.
