Eye of the Aardvark
Once upon a time there was an Aardvark who couldn’t catch ants. So, he put himself in a trance and the ants could control him. So, when the ant controlled him he was dumped off a cliff, had the planet Mars fall on his face, and got used as a golf ball. And then he had a coconut thrown on his head, and he got un-hypnomatized (sic.).
Then he said “hey Ant! I was kidding about being unhypnomatized (sic.). When I snap my fingers I want to be faster than crocodiles.” (Because crocodiles chasing him.) “Hey Ant! Ant!” …
“It’s magic”, said the Ant. “Some people got it, some people don’t.” Snap, went the Ant’s fingers.
One day Pink was walking down the street. He saw all sorts of tress and flowers. Then he saw his neighbour, Big Nose, trimming his roses. Pink says, “Hello” to Big Nose. Big Nose says back, “Ehnnn”. Then Pink started to smell something that was really stinky. Pink plugged his nose but he could still smell it. Pink tried everything but it just wouldn’t go away. He tried even more and more and more. But he still couldn’t get the smell to go away. Pink had an idea. He found his gasmask at his house, and Pink went down to the park and played a while then went home. Then he went to bed.
ICE AGES – A Chapter Book, A fact Book Sabre-tooths have long teeth to catch prey. Mammoths have long trunks to pick up things. A sloth has two teeth in the front.

Dino-sailors left the dock. They went onboard “the Rocky Seas”. That is what their ship was called. Then they left the dock with glee. Dino-sailors rocked and read. A storm came. Dion-sailors rocked and rained. Dino-sailors almost barfed. Then, they had no choice. They actually barfed. Dion-sailors decided to go home. They rested. Then they went back to their very very cozy lairs. -The End
Once upon a time in the Olden days there was a fish. The fish was small. He had lots of scales. He built his den. Then he was eaten by a crocodile when he was going to the grocery store. -The End (P.S. The crocodile was eaten by a shark on the way to an arcade)
Hello World! The Playjamas blog starts today. Sit tight. The digital revolution is now.
What’s the Playjamas blog going to be about?
Well, there are plenty of serious topics we could cover. For example, the environmental impact of non-organic cotton processing (Google it – the amount of pesticides involved may blow your mind). What about the human impact of unethical manufacturing. Or perhaps that age-old question: are fire-retardant chemicals the right chemicals to have pressed against you or your child’s skin? Each of these are serious and important subjects.
But no. Dealing with weighty matters isn’t the purpose here. Don’t get us wrong. The World is full of pressing problems, and we at Playjamas believe in a shared responsibility for dealing with them. However, we also take seriously the responsibility for having fun. Laughing, smiling, and encouraging creativity and curiosity in kids is one of life’s true privileges.
Therefore, after discussion and debate it’s been decided that the Playjamas blog be turned over to the kids. … In the following posts we’ll share the stories recounted to us at bed-time by Henry (2), William (4) and Callum (6). We serve as the humble scribes. They let the tales flow. No polishing, embellishing or ghost writing permitted. Just the musings of our Playjamas wearing crew.
We hope you find the stories as amusing (enlightening?) as we do. In the coming months, we’ll also invite submissions from the Playjama-nation. There may be a give-a-way or two.
Thanks for taking a look. We hope to see you again soon.
