Elephants (and Triceratops) on Parade

Speaking of Schleich animals...
One of Ellie's favorite pastimes is lining up, organizing, grouping, and feeding her horde of plastic animals, which are mostly Schleich gifts from the grandparents but also include some oddly-colored, mutant, bagged assortment animals from China. I am proud of the way she includes these ugly little cheapies in her play, right there next to the fancy German toys with their anatomical correctness and colors found in nature. Segregation, never!
Here's a photo set from Flickr several months ago (recycled content!) detailing Ellie's tiny little plastic animal management disorder (TLPAMD). Stay tuned for TLPAMD updates.

It should also be noted that we have observed this animal arrangement for at least 9 months now. There is a method, and order to the way in which these "guys" are arranged. By species? By food-chain status? No one knows...
We are worried that she is being trained as some kind of modern day Noah...trained by a higher power...
Keep a look out for global flooding.
