I met my girlfriend Sprout at the Just for Friends consignment sale that they were holding at the convention center. It was basically a big yard sale of kids items. I found some cute clothes, but alot of the stuff was way overpriced. Then I spotted this old toy and I had to have it for Leyton's room. It sits about 8" tall, is solid wood and was only $5. I think based on a sticker it is from Germany. I totally love how it looks on his shelf!
