The Most Kick-Ass Toy of All Time

is what I brought home to The Son yesterday. As I told the husband on the way back, it's going to be hard to top this one.

Is it a cardboard box, said the husband. Obviously some of us have a different standard of kickass.

I showed it to him. It's my new Blackberryyyyyy. The months of wrangling the TV remote/mobile phone/ oven controls from The Son will be nothing compared to the fights we will have when he wants to hold, poke, hug, kiss and taste the Blackberry.

And sure enough, when we got home, I couldn't resist giving The Son a little peek (it's the big sister in me - she does it every time) and then hiding it. He came after me right away. I tried to distract him ("Look! High Five!") but it didn't work. He ran over with the clutchy little hands and the little boy voice saying "Mote! Mote! Please!" (he calls them all "remote"). I tried to distract him again (by spinning him around) but it didn't work and I eventually had to take him for a walk. Damn. This distraction thing used to be easier. What happened to the good old days when I could just tickle him?!

Actually it's hard enough keeping the Blackberry away from The Husband. He is constantly trying to rip the plastic sheet off the little window. What is it with men and these little plastic sheets. Just a few months ago, and despite having received strongly worded legal advice, he ripped the plastic cover sheets off the front and back seats of our new car. And the dashboard. And the rearview mirror. And the little digital clock on the dashboard. And that last one was barely noticeable!

Why darlink, don't you know as the little one grows it is no longer going to be enough to tickle (him), you need to tickle his fancy. He wants mote, give him mote I say. But first remove those nasty batteries. And for now, he doesn't have to know a Blackberry is not a blackberry. Otherwise, walking I hear is good cardio-vascular exercise

Hey, which model you got? I'm still stuck with the VERY ORIGINAL and VERY ORIGINAL CONDITION BB. Can be quite embarrassing, but don't care la. It's just work.

These things don't seem to display the model numbers anywhere. I checked the screen and was going to say that I have the Blackberry GPRS 3.06 PM version, but I think that's the time.

I would say it's the original version as well, but someone else has told me that it's not. Wonder how he knew that. Can't tell just by looking at it.

BTW, my son peeled off the plastic sheet over the little window last night. Am devastated.

He seems to love just holding it. He'll smile at me and say "Hode. Hode."

remove the battery; the model number is behind.

i've got a BB for work too, the 7100. always keep it in my handbag so the boy can't touch it. he always play with his father's BB though. there is just something about remotes, HPs, and little boys.

how come no one talks about the satisfaction of _holding_ an electronic gadget? it's the grip, the snug feel of a tool in your hand, the swiftness of wielding it about, the sense of power, the fantasy that it might be a light saber...

then again, my heart-felt sympathy to all who have their emails following them around all time, all places :)
