Please don't laugh. She's only two. grin

Last week I bought DD1 a gingerbread man and after watching Shrek she sees it more as a teddy than a foodstuff. She was horrified at the suggestion of eating him.

She took him to bed tonight and I have just retrieved him and his leg has snapped off. How can I fix it back on with something edible?

Just tell her he's run away when she wakes up in the morning and finds him gone, then make some more...

In Shrek he did get his legs broken.

Make him a crutch grin

Superglue it as she has no intention of eating it, then cover it in PVA glue to make it last longer.

Wow, I got some replies. grin

I think i'll have to keep a supply.

This is so sweet! (And no I don't mean Gingy)

Bless your little dd - you must send dh out at once to an all night supermarket for some more. Failing that - icing should work - maybe pop him in the fridge to help it set?

I like Fluffy's answer best! although the mini-crutch appeals as well...

He could have run away...

Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me.........

Sorry Puzzle you know I love you but this actually made me LOL

Ice his leg back on.

Make a gingerbread house.

Make him a gingerbread lady.

Take them all to the forest and set them up in their new home Leave them their! Send postcards from them telling dd about their lives until she gives up interest.

Good morning

Dawn, that is a lot of work. I'm far too lazy busy. wink

DH suggested telling her a fox had eaten him. Hmm, the thought of a fox creeping into her room at night and eating her friends wouldn't freak her out much.

He was the first thing she asked for this morning so I just started rambling about fun stuff we have planned today. She seems to have forgotten for now.
