Let's just say she was drawn to indoor activities.
Her petite frame fit perfectly within the 'set-ups' my two sons create with their star wars figures, superheroes, legos, toy creatures, etc. The boys eagerly included her in their fun (safety precautions were put in place - a cushy carpeted floor - to avoid any mishaps).
Alongside Obi Wan Kenobi, Batman & Robin, Miss Chicken fought in battles against ninjas, Cad Bane, droidica and the like. She reveled in the adventures of hang gliding and rock repelling (Don't ask me how!) She squealed with delight as she slid down the ramp of Batman's Bat Cave with Superman, Robin and her favorite superhero, Hawk.
BUT, when she discovered a toy crown and a knight's helmet, she was all about knights and being queen. Little Miss Chick was found perched upon the castle wall, horse back riding and spending time with a certain knight, or two. She completely forgot that she had arrived with other companions! (Not to worry, they were content to play with the others.)
What captured her attention the most, though, was an intense game of chess where she came up against a very formidable (and handsome) knight.
