lmnop: What do you like to do when friends come round?
e: Play animals.
lmnop: Who comes over to play?
e: All my friends, Edmund, Mehek, Indigo, Tulipa, Estella … lots of friends. But they don’t all come over. Sometimes I go to their houses.
lmnop: What do you like to show your friends when they come over?
e: Puppy – he’s my soft toy dog.
lmnop: What toys do you play with the most?
e: Puppy, Pumpkin and Cheeky. They are soft toys too. Pumpkin’s a dog and Cheeky’s a rabbit. I have lots of Schleichs. I play lots of things with them. Sometimes I play zoos and make the cages out of blocks and put them all in the zoo on the living room floor. Sometimes I use up all the blocks but when I’ve finished I go “urgh … I am NOT packing all this up!”
lmnop: What’s your favourite craft activity?
e: Books! I make them with sticky tape and paper and I write my stories in them and draw the pictures. They are usually sort of … you know, those things that have like a little story, then another little story … like a whole book and it has little stories in it.
lmnop: Do you have any brothers or sisters?
e: I have one brother called Fergus, he’s sometimes annoying and sometimes we fight together but he sometimes plays with me. He’s 8.
lmnop: Do you have a pet?
e: Fish. They are called Arizona and Comet and the rest are called the Thompson Twins.
lmnop: Do you like to play inside or outside the best?
e: I like playing inside but Edmund likes playing outside so we do both.
lmnop: Do you ever go somewhere fun with your friends?
e: Yes, the park. Mostly I go with Fergus and we ride our scooters.
lmnop: Do your friends stay for a long time, or just come for a short visit?
e: Sometimes long and sometimes short. Edmund comes over for a long time usually. He lives very close and we can just walk up to his house. But he’s on holidays right now, so we can’t play, but we’ll play again when he comes back.
