A couple of Christmases ago, my wife and I bought our son a Fisher Price GeoTrax train set. It came with a train, a bunch of tracks, and a 3-piece table. Since then we’ve bought a few expansion packs including a bag of tracks that comes with a trolley.
While the extra tracks provided additional creative value, the trolley was just this car that had to be pushed along the track. Not the best for a kid who wants to make the “biggest train of cars in the entire world.”
So, the other day we were snowed in. My son was playing with his trains in the living room when he started talking to the trolley. Soon after, words turned into screeches. Eventually he picked up his trolley car and brought it over to me saying, “Here, it’s broken. This trolley is broken.”
What he meant was, the trolley didn’t have couplings like the other cars so he couldn’t attach it to the rest of the train of cars. I asked him if he wanted me to “fix it” and he started dancing around the room singing the song of “Yes!”.
