Brinquedo de papelão X brincar com papelão – Cardboard toys X playing with cardboard

Até pouco tempo atrás eu achava que papelão era um bom material para brinquedos caseiros, ou seja, pensava em brinquedos de papelão. Aí mostrei pro T. o processo de fazer um brinquedo desses, porque achei que ele ia gostar de ver como o brinquedo tinha “nascido”. Mal sabia que se instalaria naquele momento um verdadeiro furor construtivo (é lógico que eu não cheguei nem na metade do primeiro projeto, antes que ele me tomasse tudo das mãos e assumisse). O tal furor levou até agora um tubo de cola branca e uns dois rolinhos de durex e continua firme. Pois é, embora brinquedo de papelão seja bacana e tal, o negócio pega mesmo porque o papelão é que é o brinquedo. — O louco é o processo, mamãe tolinha, vc. tem certeza de que foi pra faculdade?

Until recently I used to think cardboard is good stuff for homemade toys, that is, I thought of cardboard toys. Then I showed T how I made one of these for him, because I thought he would like to see how his new toy had been “born”. Hardly did I know that from that moment on a true building fever would set in – I didn’t get to finish the first half of that first project, before he took over. The mentioned fever has so far claimed a bottle of glue and two rolls of adhesive tape, and keeps going. So, though cardboard toys are nice n’ all, things get really good because cardboard itself is the toy. — Silly mom, the hot stuff is the process, you sure you went to college?
