The Cardboard Chameleon

It’s the thing that gets played with the most on Christmas morning.

It’s been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.

It’s the blank canvas that can, with the cleverness of a child’s imagination, swiftly transform from a a getaway car to a medieval castle to a time machine at a moment’s notice.

It is proof, as Thomas Edison proclaimed, that the greatest invention in the world is the mind of a child.

  1. When I read “Time Machine”, my mind instantly went to the TARDIS from Doctor Who.
    The nameless Doctor, with his little blue box that’s bigger on the inside, flying around the universe having one adventure after another. :)
    Definitely a show for the kids in all of us.
