Our English cousins?

Just keep watching, it's amazing!

This comes to us from The Children's Scrapstore in the UK. My favorite parts are - looking through tubes and saying "Hi" and - playing "we will rock you" on a trash can using tubes. Having a friend drag you around in a crate looks pretty sweet as well. Please try this at home!

Thanks to Deborah for the link.
