Just kidding. We only pick through its sidewalk of empty boxes and bring a few home for play.
Today Andrew realized a vision: a rain forest tree that shoots Airhead candies from a hole in its trunk.
After all, nothing is too outrageous for a 6th birthday celebration!
Design and execution were all his. He stacked three boxes in an irregular column and tore cardboard bottle dividers into branches.
A coat of paint disguised its duct-tape-meets-Champagne origins.

Candy fruit slices add color. He plans real vines around the trunk. And a monkey, if he has time.
The Magical Airhead tree spits out candy at an alarming speed. Let's hope the little ones are as thrilled as we are!
