Tonight, I found a giant Lego and decided to see what Ink would do with it! He has been playing with it non stop since I put it in! He seems to like being able to wrap his legs around all the shapes! It is very buoyant, so he really has to work at getting it down to the bottom of the tank. Right now he has worked it all the way to the bottom and is currently hiding behind it! I think he has a thing for smooth plastic! My daughtor is pissed and wants her toy back but I'm afraid she's gonna have to wait til Ink's done with it!

Yup, I guess we all have to try giant Lego blocks.

Great pic of Ink and his toy. He's such an ernest little guy!

Hi everyone! Ya never know what's gonna tickle their fancy!!! Ink is still playing with this block! He kind of uses it as this buoyant toy! Likes to make it turn over and over! Plus when he takes a break, he wedges himself between the glass and the lego!

Here's another shot!!

Hey Tony!

Yes he is!!! Sometimes, in the middle of the night I look over at the tank and he is hanging off the block! Seems to really like it!!!

Other things have lost interest for him. Maybe it's the flourescent green!!! :mrgreen:

This shot was taken from the top of the tank!

Hey Colin!

Good idea! I will have to attempt my daughtors toy box and see if I can find some other colors!!!! Would really be interesting to see if Blue or Red has the same effect!!!
