...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 :P

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. 

For those who want to guess what it really is: have at it!
    Hint 1: It was less $20 USD
    Hint 2: It's not a train. 


For those who don't want to guess what it really is: 

Spoiler

I got this doormat for my parents (because the family dog is one barky boy), and so that's what forms the core cylinder of the train. 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 ^_^

Hm, never thought of disguised gifts. Interesting concept. :P I don't think they'll have any idea what's coming lol.

Also Matoro is best Matoran.

I've been staring at this for five minutes and I still can't understand how you got it in there.  Are you sure you aren't a witch?  We have ways of finding out, you know.

Yes! I saw one a year or so ago that was super intense, I'm pretty sure it's a broom, but disguised to go 'boom'. (I forget where its originally from, but I googled 'disguised christmas presents, and it popped up) And yes! Putting Matoro together was actually the first time I've built a set! Hhaha about 15 years too late, but that's okay!

Hahaha, I'm sorely tempted to let you believe I'm a Christmas witch. But I also enjoy revealing the method to the (probably underwhelming) madness, so voilà!
