After a long time of researching for the perfect skeleton model, I ordered a Mr. Thrifty Flexible Skeleton. Excuse the quality of the photos. I took them after a long day (11 hours) at the hospital while the husband had back surgery. I was too tired to do anything with them, but felt I needed to share my find. 🙂
He isn’t perfect, but I like him. As you can see the right arm is on backwards. (Update: The arm was rotated and easily fixed. So.. he’s perfect now)
He has cute little hands and feet. 🙂
All joints move, except in the phalanges and a few other places. Top of the skull comes off. It’s a no brainer. LOL
He has a flexible spine, with nerves, and I think the red bulge is a ruptured disc. Not sure. I’ll have to ask Sir Husband. He had his disc fixed twice. He’ll know.
He’ll be a nice addition to our homeschooling journey and also makes a nice home decor.
When I was making him talk and blowing kisses to The Violinist, all the kids ran out of the room.
I then heard The Violinist whisper to one of The Peas, while pointing at me:
“It’s so sad when they get old.”
And all my kids agreed. I think I’ll add to their work load and make the skeleton watch. bwhahaha
Well, if the kids don’t like him, he can be friends with Ernie.
While the naughty kids are making fun of the skeleton, they felt it was their duty to name it. Totally forgetting I’m the owner and should name it. However; they have named it Carlos.
I don’t care for the name Carlos, but it is better than Dr. Dead, Mr. Bones, etc. I would like something other than Carlos. So, what would you name this new addition to our family?
