The Class Zebra

July 9, 2016

Last Friday Tigger came out of school proudly holding the class Zebra. As he walked over he shouted ‘Mummy, Look!’ waving it in the air. Before telling me that he had to take it on adventures all weekend and take it back on Monday.

When we got home Tigger decided he needed to name the Zebra so we looked up names beginning with Z on his tablet. After looking at all the options he decided upon Zane the Ninja Zebra!

Tired from a week at school, Friday evening was enjoyed in pyjamas and watching Netflix. With Tigger introducing Zane to the LEGO Ninjago team.

With Mr Boo working all weekend we decided to have a day at home in the garden on Saturday. Tigger was able to try out his new bike and with Zane tucked into his top for the ride.

Up until recently Tigger has never shown any interest in getting a bike, however, I think after seeing his friends ride to school on their bikes he has decided that he’d like one too. With his stabilisers on he is ready to gain confidence with riding his bike before making the jump to no stabilisers.

With his bike riding practice over he didn’t to see whether Zane liked the slides. We have the baby slide from when Roo and Tigger were little as well as a bigger one that we bought the other week. Tigger made me laugh as he thought that the bigger slide would be too scary for Zane to go down on his own so had to sit on his lap – bless him.

Sunday was filled with all the jobs that we didn’t do on Saturday which included a trip to buy new school shoes, a peek in the Disney Store, hunting for Skylanders Trap Team traps and food shopping. Thankfully we didn’t manage to lose Zane anywhere on our trip round the city.

Does your little one have to bring home a toy to have adventures with?

    I love how you’ve taken the class Zebra out in your adventures! That’s so fun. I have a kangaroo which I’m sometimes allowed to bring home for our adventures and sleepovers! #CountryKids

    My twin girls love taking teddies on their adventures, keep getting pictures with them in. He looks very happy with his Zebra!

    We had the class doll – which was the ugliest doll I’ve ever seen! Ben loves this kind of thing too.

    Love how it’s made him want to look after the zebra and have fun with him. #countrykids

    Aaah the class zebra, I remember when I was little someone had to take the mice home over school holidays. never me, but how times have changed! ALthough it is a stuffed toy, lol! We used to send our Brownies home with a teddy each week for them to go on adventures, one lost it and then we stopped it. Traumatic or what! Looks like he had fun in the garden, sitting on his lap for the big slide is just cute! #countrykids

    That is so lovely, it sounds like Zane was in very careful hands for the weekend. We have had the school bear come here on holiday many times before, it’s always lovely to watch the children taking care of them and the parents warning them not to drop them in the farm mud! I ope Tigger keeps up with the cycling, he will have the stabilizers off in no time.

    Thank you for sharing the adventures of Tigger and Zane over on #CountryKids

    Oh I love the idea of a class toy but would worry that J wouldn’t want to let it go lol

    We recently got school shoes too as my son uses his feet and shoes as brake on his scooter and bikes! I am always telling him to use the real brakes but it might get some more time before he does.

    Zane looks so happy being a passenger on Tigger’s bike! I bet he had the most fun weekend ever! #countrykids

    Oh That does bring back memories. We had the class bear over for weekends a few times. Children always loved it. How sweet Tigger took such care of his visitor on the slide. #CountryKids

    Aww bless him. It looks like Zane the Zebra has wonderful weekend. My daughter loves it too when her class hamster come for a visit. 🙂
