Happy Day Playmat
Reversible crochet intarsia makes this an interactive no-wrong-side playmat.
Mike drives his truck down the bumpy road. He has to get this load to the castle so he can save the princess in the tower. Buddy is riding his horse. Mike and Buddy will meet and go across the moat. But, look, Buck is driving up in his tractor! What if he gets there first? Better drive faster. Watch out for the deep-sea diver. He’ll probably swim through the underground tunnel. He might get there first! Then he’ll get the treasure for saving the princess. Faster! But, wait! Who’s that in the little car? Oh, it’s James! I bet he has a good idea! We can go play with the wild animals near the mushrooms. That’s a better idea than saving some dumb princess.
