Fostering creativity

Bet you are wondering why I am showing you
a bunch of stuffed animals, aren't you?

They are "The Gaggles" comprised of
Whitester, Pinkster, Bluester and Snowman.
The guy in the middle is their manager.
His name is Cotton Candy, the bunny.

(The names may not be so creative,
but, heck, we had Blackie and Snowball
our pet rabbits when I was a kid.)

If you have young children,
you probably know about Webkinz,
the genius marketing idea that gives
stuffed animals their own online presence.

My boys often play with the stuffed animals
offline too - hence "The Gaggles."
The four critters that make up this band
could be described as platypus-like
but are called googles, like the search engine.

Get it? A gaggle of googles, kind of like geese!
That is where my boys' creativity starts.
They are writing songs, creating staging
and bringing them on a world tour
via a large metal toy tractor trailer.

Look for them at a venue near you.
