Packaging should be the number 1 selling point when purchasing baby toys.

    Funny video, SO true. But really, that boy is damn cute. Nice work Whoorl.

    8,459 toys and he only wants the toxic plastic stuff!

    Oh, yes. Sam loooooooves his cardboard boxes.

    I’m thinking SAJ has the right idea with the cardboard box parties.

    Yes that is always how it happens.

    Well, at least the packaging keeps them entertained. Right?

    But if you didn’t buy the new toys, you wouldn’t have the o so entertaining packaging…….ponder.

    Miss the little one already! Oh, and you too.

    Miss you too!

    ROFL! We have that same little piano table. “Open… CLOSE!”

    I love the way the camera pans from toys, to Wito playing with packaging, back to lonely, lonely toys. No narration or exposition needed. :-)

    Open….CLOSE! HIGH…lowwwww. Down…UPPP!

    tell me you planned that music… “we are all basically alone…” poor toys.

    i love that album.

    I totally planned it, I’m super cool like that…um, er, yeah…

    No I didn’t plan it, but DAMN girl, you’re observant! And yes, Andrew Bird. I love Andrew Bird.

    This is a pain I know all too well. So much money wasted on fancypants toys of all shapes and sizes (which, by the way, seem to multiply when my back is turned) and what does T love to play with more than anything? Red plastic cups. You know, the ones you buy at Costco that cost about $10 for a trillion? Sigh…I need to sit down, but every available surface is strewn with abandoned toys.

    I heart Andrew Bird, too! Good choice.

    My friends’ daughter seems happier unravelling the toilet paper in the bathroom than she does with any of her real toys. Think of the money that could have been saved…

    I just got some Andrew Bird from iTunes. Got any other recommendations? :)

    Right now, I’m listening to a lot of Andrew Bird, Regina Spektor, Jessie Baylin and Emiliana Torrini. Let me know what you think! :)

    Haha, so cute. That’s how my cat is. Not that i’m comparing whoorlito to a cat or anything but you know. Dig the music playing in the background!

    so…true…Before our son, Charlie was born I couldn’t figure out why the toys we bought for him were so overly packaged..now I know.
    why do we bother spending thousands of dollars on nice, new, shiny, clean, safe toys, when all they want is a box, a dirty shoe, a magazine, or a used doggy chew toy?

    By the way, I like the new Andrew Bird album ALMOST as much as his previous release, Mysterious Production of Eggs.

    nice work on your videos..hilarious.
