We couldn't find the Tio that Aunt Montse gave to us when I was little, so we had to improvise using my new stuffy - sprinkles. He is a caterpillar that I got at the dollar store. In this photo, my dad and I were about to unveil the cover on the Cago Tio.
This year the Tio brought me a lot of modelling clay, a 3-D puzzle, Kraft Bendable Building Sticks, Geometric Rulers (my favourite is the sxx), sticky notes, a lot of blank recipe cards, three different pencil sharpeners, coloured wooden blocks, a glow sticks that turns into eye glasses, a lot of pencils, a bow compass and divider, five rectangular erasers, and a round eraser.
