Fido heard something so he wagged his tail and went to the window to see what was going on and Timmy followed. Fido knew it was his job to make everyone aware anytime somebody was at the door. The boy and his dog looked out of the window, expecting to see something. Timmy told Fido that it wasn’t the postman because he would always ring twice in case there was something that needed to be signed for or otherwise, he would just place the mail in the box. Fido was hoping that they word get a visitor, because he enjoyed jumping up on people to great them, as that was his thing when anybody arrived. Fido had no clue why they were waiting there, but he wondered if it might be another delivery from BarkBox the monthly surprise of dog toys, treats, and goodies, that he was often rewarded with for being the best dog in the house.
Timmy was hoping the Amazon truck would show up because he asked his mom to get him some more Suction Construction Squigz toys, because he planned on being a Structural Engineer when he grew up. Timmy could play with these toys while he was in the bathtub, or he could make them stick on walls, windows, or even the kitchen table. Timmy’s mom felt that by playing with these toys, it would encourage her son’s creativity, build his fine motor skills, his interaction, and playful experimentation, so she was happy that he enjoyed them, especially since they wouldn’t leave any residue or marks on surfaces. She could relax while his mind was engaged and since the pieces connect together easily and pop apart, she was wondering what her genius son would create with them.
