My son loves toys, but doesn't play with most of them for an extended period of time. But the ones he loves, he'll play with all day if we let him. I didn't quite know what to expect when I showed him a jack-in-the-box. His reaction was priceless.

My son has autism so he's as easily bored as he is easily amused. This, however, was not the reaction I thought he'd have. I figured he'd pop up, he'd shrug his shoulders and move on. Instead, he learned how to put Jack (or Curious George, in this case) back in the box and do it all over again. He did this for about 10 minutes straight.

I know what we're getting him for his birthday in June.
