Not Just Kid Stuff

So just because you have a "serious" job at Google, doesn't mean that they don't like to have fun with little toys. William came home as one of the Google sheriffs (what you can't see is that it also lights up)
And it may look like a "normal" drink, but it has a special surprise. You have to push down a ball to have a drink.
But the glass ball sits on the inside the rest of the time you drink it and makes noise. Apparently they are super popular in Japan and Google wanted their employers to have fun as well.
But for us, the fun with toys don't end at work. We have them at our place. In our box of Reeses Puffs, we found this little surprise.
I totally think he looks scary! He kind of creeps me out now- I can't even imagine what it would be like if I was a little kid. William has him hanging from our heater in the apartment.

Our other new adventure is what they call Sippah Straws (my guess is that they were named by someone from Bawhston).
The concept is that inside of the straw, they have sugar crystals that flavor your milk while you sip it. Here's what the straw looks like
And here's a close up of the crystals.
The straws themselves are ok- it flavors the milk, but leaves a slightly weird aftertaste. The Hershey's Strawberry syrup is better. William even tried the strawberry milk through the strawberry sippah and the flavor wasn't super enhanced. Its definitely a unique idea and we still have like 16 since it was buy 1 box, get one free.

These are just evidences that kids stuff are still enjoyed at our house with the young-at-heart ;-)
