by Lucas, age 6
Lucas lives in Taipei, Taiwan. His mother sent me his drawing. I clarified that the yellow thing in his right hand was actually his hand and that the red rectangle in front of his tummy was his clothes. She asked that he be made holding a musical note.
My parents are from Taiwan (I was born and raised in Canada). Although I make my toys just like the drawings, I knew that I should not make the boy's hair white nor his hands black. I e-mailed his mother to ask about the hair colour. "Blue," she answered," like his clothes."
Little Boy Blue, come play your music.
