083/366: Bat-Toys!

The Pip is nute about superheros at the moment, primarily the Justice League, and particularly Batman. He's got quite the pile of toys around this theme, making for a decent photo subject:

The Pip's collection of superhero toys. The Pip's collection of superhero toys.

Technically, these aren't all Bat-Toys-- you can see a Spiderman Lego set in there (from some alternate universe in which Peter Parker got Tony Stark to buy him a Spider-Copter) and also a few Transformers. But Batman holds down a pretty solid plurality in the toy population.

The Bat-Boat that's front and center in this shot (which ended up in the bathtub shortly after this was taken) is the most recent purchase, last week when he was home sick, and he was just over the moon about getting that. It's good to be an easily amused Little Dude.

Also, I introduced him to this:

Because I've been singing it at him for years, and getting baffled stares in response. Now, he knows this is a real song, and will periodically demand to watch it. Also the 60's-vintage Spiderman theme song. (That one, I don't have particularly strong associations with, but the Adam West Batman series was a staple of WPIX when I was a kid visiting my grandmother on Long Island. POW! BIFF! BAM!)

Ben at The World's Fair asks what kind of scientist Batman is. (Of course, he does this after producing something like reliable testimony that Batman is a scientist to begin with.) Sandra Porter makes the case that he's a geneticist, but I'm not buying it. There'd be more fruit flies in the Bat…
A bunch of stuff happened that knocked me out of the habit of editing and posting photos-- computer issues, travel, catching up on work missed because of travel, and a couple of bouts with a stomach bug the kids brought home. I have been taking pictures, though, and will make an attempt to catch up…
The Pip is in a big superhero phase at the moment, and all of his games revolve around being a superhero of some sort. He has also basically memorized a couple of 30-page Justice League books, after demanding them over and over at bedtime. As I did with SteelyKid, I make a game out of reading the…
This is a pure document-my-day shot, not one of my random attempts at artsy effects. One of The Pip's birthday presents was a big vinyl wall decal from Chic Walls, a gift from Aunt Erin in California. These are a little complicated to install, and SteelyKid being sick messed up the whole week, but…

During the entire bath, all he sang was "Bat-boat!" on repeat. I do not exaggerate.

So, yeah, that's a hit.
