EXCITEMENT IN HAVING THOMAS TRAIN SET


This weekend we had been to babies r us/toys r us which is a toy store chain based in the United States. The chain also has locations in Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, and Canada. The company currently operates 840 stores in the United States and 716 stores in 34 other countries, with some of them under franchises or licenses. The flagship store in New York City's Times Square is the largest toy store in the world,[2] featuring a colorful Ferris wheel. It is the largest toy-centered retailer and the second largest overall toy retailer in the United States.

me and my friend had gone for shopping for getting baby clothes and other stuff as usual pradhan didnt want to sit in his stroller so had to leave him lose and raghu was taking care of him ,once pradhan started exploring the store he came stand still in front of the toy section and was excited to see Thomas train set he got one set and came straight to me and said lets go home amma in our native language tulu,
we said ok we will get u the set but you have to wait he thought thatwe are again fooling him once we go to checkout so he had the set in his hand till we finish shopping .once we went to checkout other things we asked him to give us so that we can put it in the bag and he can open in the house but he was so adamant that he is not giving the toys in our hand because he thought we are not buying it for him atlast the store lady asked him to give so she can checkout then he gave her ,she gave it back later he immediately told bye to the lady and once it was confirmed we got him the train set ,he gave it to our hand to keep it in the trunk of the car .
look at the little brain working so fast he could know we were fooling everytime when we go to the toy store .
