Silas Unveils Poor-Man's Surprise Bags

Silas likes watching these Youtube videos of kids unwrapping toys where you don't know what's inside.  It's non-stop educational time around here as you can tell.  Let's be honest, I got him hooked.  If you are one of my mom friends with small children, you know what I'm talking about.  If not, this post will sound like utter nonsense.  Anyways, this weekend we did some shopping and actually bought a few of these surprise toys with a Toys R Us birthday gift card. (Thanks KatKat!) It is pretty thrilling to see what you are going to get.  That thrill is usually followed by disappointment and buyer's remorse.  We ended up buying two Disney Lego mini blind bags, 3 surprise Paw Patrol Mashems, and Daron picked up a few WWE pint sized hero surprise bags for his wrestling pay-per-view.  We started out with just the Lego ones, but then by blessed luck got our number one draft pick, Peter Pan himself.  The rush was addicting, hence the others.  We wanted the fun to continue, but they are a bit pricey, especially for junk that will be lost rather directly.  All that to say, here is Silas's own video unwrapping our homemade toy surprise bags.

Next up he will be making ASMR movies of himself washing baby dolls in Skittles. (I only wish.)


  1. I'm a mom friend and I have no idea what these are. Can we still be friends?

  2. I also have never heard of these things! My kids are missing out, apparently. Also, I apparently missed the fact that you MADE little clay people for your homemade surprise bags. Mom award won by Jess. Also, "who the heck is this?" Bahaha...
