After a few weeks of fun work... Colin's super fabulous robot/outer space room is ready!
The love of space started during a visit to Papa Staley's house, where we watched a live orbit of the space shuttle in the evening sky thanks to Uncle Dan's following of said sky activities!
The shadow boxes hold tin wind up robots and a space shuttle, super cool and they really work!
His new night light is a green lava lamp space shuttle.
Thanks to our friend John for Colin's Christmas present Star Wars helmet (even lets Colin talk with a Store Trooper voice thrower) that fits right into this theme!
Colin helped paint the planets in our solar system (during which time we read and learned a lot of planet facts that Colin now quotes often!) It's close to scale with Earth being a little out sized so we had enough space to fit in all of the continents!
What you can't see is that when the real night sky falls... Colin's ceiling begins to glow with painted on glow in the dark starry sky!
Colin's bedding has robots on it as well, and on his bed are his cool new pals, the Ugly Dolls!
The wall decorations are vintage looking outer space comic posters.
And the best part, Colin's new life size robot friends!!!
These new friends were a lot of fun to create, with a special trip to the American Science and Surplus store... our new favorite place! So many odd gadgets and bins upon bins of perfect robot panel controls!
