Hey diddle, diddle, Evan & his fiddle

This is Evan with his violin - we stumbled across this toy at Babyland, SS2 - only RM9.90. We were actually there to look for a tricycle for Evan as requested by his Kung Kung for little Evan's birthday. Didn't manage to find a suitable one instead we got side-tracked and found the violin and at the same time a old classic wooden toy piano exactly like the ones that we had when we were young. Wow, Evan was sooooo excited that he held the violin all the way home and after that wouldnt let go of it - even when it was time to snooze...... and then he even brought it out with him to Berjaya Times Square. He has a book title 'Howard's Screechy Violin' and he would 'act out' the entire story with his violin - including the part where he would bow after playing the violin. He simply lurves musical instruments....

This is Evan with his toy guitar...... another one of the many instruments he has. So far, he has a xylophone, drum, trumpet, tambourine, electronic guitar, guitar, piano, violin, drumset with cymbals and another electronic guitar..... well, we are on the look out for an accordion, castanet and maracas for him! He always goes ga-ga over the display of real music instruments at the shops and even in his story books. Before we bought him the piano, he would pretend to play an imaginary piano. He has also used his Lego Duplo blocks to create a flute, clarinet and saxophone. Plus, he would use covers and pretend they are cymbals.

This is Evan with his toy trumpet. It broke after he dropped it one day and I had to purchase another trumpet but a better design which can play 3 different notes. Anyway, we sent a photo of him with this trumpet and specs to Parenthood magazine and it was selected as a winner in the candid camera contest - check it out in the Parenthood September 2007 issue.
