    Ballerina Rex

    | Toronto, ON, Canada | Family & Kids, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (I am in the toy store with my boyfriend. It’s a Saturday, so it’s pretty crowded with children and their parents. We’re looking at the display of a new dinosaur toy series, when a tiny little girl in a pink ballerina outfit enters the store with her mother. The girl spots the dinosaur display from about 30 feet away, and comes running over.)

    Little Girl: “Mommy! Mommy look! Dinosaurs!”

    Her Mom: “I see sweetie. Do you want to spend some of your birthday money on the dinosaurs?”

    Little Girl: “Yes! Can I have the T-Rex? Or the Triceratops?”

    Her Mom: “How about one like the one this lady is buying?”

    (The mom gestures to me and the velociraptor set I’m holding. I smile, and hold it at her level so she can see it. The little girl examines it carefully, and then slowly shakes her head.)

    Little Girl: “It’s a little too scary. Can I have the T-Rex?”

    Her Mom: “Sure sweetie, it’s your birthday money after all.”

    (She hands her daughter the T-Rex box, which is nearly as big as she is. Her older brother, who looks about 13, offers to carry it for her.)

    Little Girl: “AWESOME! Dinosaurs!”

    (Clutching the box, she starts skipping towards the cash with her older brother, twirling and spinning like a ballerina the whole way.)

    Her Mom: *sees us laughing* “My little ballerina. She’s been stealing her brother’s toy dinosaurs since she was one!”

    (The adorable, dino-loving ballerina made my day!)
