Hic haec hoc, it’s off to play we go!

"Playmobil Romans Know Latin" tickled me, and perhaps proves that Playmobil is more educational than Lego for the littlies, even if Lego Mindstorms win for older kids (and the even older kids who use their own children as an excuse to play).

I’m definitely keeping my eye out for this set in a couple of years when my grandson graduates from megablocks and duplo.  Hmmm, perhaps I should start reading him my copies of Alicia in Terra Mirabilis, Winnie Ille Pu and Domus Anguli Puensis.  I’d better avoid the Catullus for a few years just to be safe, particularly on Aemilius and Gellius.

Hat tip to Latinteach, which also has great resources on classical Latin recipes.  Hmmm, perhaps I should introduce his tastebuds to Apicius – much nicer than Cena Trimalchionis.
