I've created little monsters...
My friend, Vicky, told me that my kids would benefit from my getting a Cricut machine, but I thought she was just trying to sell me on it. :)
Truth is, as soon as my 8 year old son saw it on HSN with me he immediately thought we needed to buy one. Even offered to use his allowance to get me one for a present. (I know, he is a very sweet boy)
The day the we took it out of the box, was the day my kids wanted stuff made. The day that the Create a Critter cartridge came in the mail, was the day I lost all control.
Every day each kid needs a new 'critter'. I haven't made them all yet, but I'm pretty sure that before my daughter is finished, I will have. She plays with them everyday, and puts on shows (that I'm not allowed to watch, sadly). I hear her in the other room, and I've secretly video taped her singing their 'theme song' (because the critters are super heroes and ALL super heroes have a theme song).
So I guess Vicky was right. My kids are having a lot of fun with it. Someday I will be able to make things with it too... ;)
