boys toys

Why is it that traditionally, boys have all the biggest and best toys.  Then when they grow up, the toys just keep on getting bigger and better.  Lately, I have been getting quite a few commissions for custom artwork for boys and their toys.  Some men have bikes, boats, cars, thrill sleds and even planes to play with.  What a unique gift of art.  Perhaps someone you know and love, the sort of person that has everything, needs a special work of art.  Girls are allowed to have fun too so please share your favorite toy with me. 
For me,  my paint box still rules number one.  Of course, I still like making sand castles at the beach too.

Lovely, but isn't it a little unfair that boys always have such grand toys. I think we girls should treat ourselves a little better. Off to Cartier with us!

This is so true! Buses and vespas abound.

I guess my 'toy' would have to be my dvd player! It gets the most use anyways and is the thing I can't live without! I really love my video ipod though too...hmmm

My husband would like nothing more than to have a warehouse to stash all his toys. Ack! My favorite toy is my Mac, it's not so much a toy as a necessity. :)

My son is into rockets and he's only 2. It doesn't get much bigger than rockets...I think we're in trouble! My favorite toy would be a tie between the sewing machine and camera.
