All Aboard the Ko-Koro Express!
...I know it's a bit early for holiday stuff (I promise, I'm not one of those people but then again, I'm not known for acute self-awareness, so I can't say for sure...), but I figured I'd get my gift buying done early (I wrapped this the day after Halloween), since I've been through one holiday rush at the Amazon warehouse, and don't want to contribute to a second
In addition to finding a little Matoro on Etsy for myself, I did some early holiday gift wrapping, but the fun way! I've seen some really cool disguised gifts on the internet in the past, and I finally decided to give it a shot. Nothing fancy, but I had a good time.

The train cars are just open-ended cardboard rectangular prisms, and the little tower parts on the engine are a mutilated paper towel roll. Wheels are also cardboard, with glue and tape and wrapping paper, and the rolled up doormat sits in the middle of the rectangles
