Perfect for the Holidays: Food Fight!

Sometimes you come across something so inherently dumb. Something so silly that you do something truly ridiculous and buy the thing.

Case in point: Meet Alfredo.

Alfredo spins around on top of a plate of spaghetti. His tray, hat and apron are made of velcro.

Then, four pretend chefs vent their frustrations by using fork catapults to launch spaghetti and meatballs at the revolving Alfredo.

You get so many points if your meatball sticks to his tray, hat, or apron; but you get a gazillion points if you manage to land a meatball on his mustache.

Of course, some over-zealous launchers manage to catapult their meatballs right over Alfredo and into the face of the person (i.e. a brother) sitting opposite.

Spaghetti in your face . . . ahhhh. That's amore.

Che carino Alfredo e chissà quante risate avete fatto.
Sicuramente questo gioco piacerebbe tanto anche a Chiara e Luciano.

OK, where do we get this? 5yo Gabey was looking over my shoulder as I read this and thinks it's something we just have to have. (Looks fun to me, too, actually...)

Lisa & Gabey,

Alfredo was discovered in the clearance bin at Books-a-Million. I actually had my eye on him for a while, but managed to resist...until he went on clearance.

Then, all resistance went out the window.

My boys would truly love this. The problem, I can see them trying this with REAL spaghetti and meatballs after playing this game only once!
I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

Okay, that is too fun! Kinda reminds me of the Pop the Pig game(which, btw is COMPLETELY UNAVAILABLE IN ALL STORES!!!) that our John asked for.

Hugs, Bia!!!
