My wonderful 10 year old niece is bright, creative, and unique. She also loves mushrooms. It was these things that made us think she might like having a Mushroom Log. It was one of those gifts that either is well-loved or it goes over like, well, a log.
We laughed at the though of giving a child an actual log for Christmas. And when she opened it, for a moment, she looked like we were the weirdest people alive. Then, when she saw what it was and we explained how it would work, you could just see her eyes lighting up.
So there you have it. We gave a kid a log and she still loves us.
