Oh, he's only two and a half. I take all of the small parts and put them up
and I NEVER let him play with MSiA's without supervision for fear the arm or
leg will pop off and end up in his mouth. He's well past the "puts
everything in his mouth" stage, but just in case. He loves them though.
Runs around the room and and makes them shoot and fly. He can recognize
them on TV, wants to play Journey to Jaburo when I turn on my PS2 "I want to
play Gundam, daddy." He can also name some mobile suits on sight without
prompting like Zaku (can't make the distinction between a Zaku II, and Zaku
III...YET!) Gouf (Goof, not GuF), Geo (The O), Quebeley, Sazabi, and most
importantly, Gundam (any red/white/blue mobile suit).
His current collection of Gundam stuff includes
MSiA Nu Gundam (which we don't play with)
MSiA BS RX-78-8
MSiA BS RX-79 [G]
1/144 scale Nu Gundam (w/o fin funnels)
1/144 GP03 (not the HGUC, that's mine)
SD Char's Zaku II
