Now that the crazy holiday season has passed, I am finally back and happy to report that the dinosaur tails were a hit! The first night all the kids were together there was only The Nut's dinosaur tail to play with because the two other little boys hadn't opened theirs yet (because Christmas was a couple days away!). But boy oh man did those kids have fun with the one orange dinosaur tail. The 6 year old boy pretty much laid claim to it and refused to take it off, but all the other kids (3 and 2 year old boys and a 3 year old girl) pretended to be dinosaurs all night too. I chased them and they chased me and around and around the house we went. They roared and attacked my legs, all the while telling me what type of dinosaur they were supposed to be. I really wish I had had more tails for everyone to wear! I unfortunately forgot my camera that night, but here are some pictures of The Nut modeling all three tails.
My husband and I agree that a slightly-less-stuffed tail is the way to go, that way it kinda hangs down like a real tail. The Nut is usually clueless that he even has it on, although sometimes his hand brushes against it and he finds it and gets really excited.
