My hubby & I loved it!
Initially, my sons were absolutely thrilled, as they thought that they would actually get a real turtle to keep that would be delivering their present. Guess because our youngest one, Little Bro, still kinda believes in the Easter Bunny, it was not a stretch for him to think that a turtle would help deliver a Lego set. Our older son, Big Bro, thought it was a dream come true, as he had actually written a narrative essay today for practice for his upcoming writing test. He has been begging for a tortoise, but said that he would be just as happy to get the turtle in your photo!
When they found out that it was an April Fool's Prank, well they were not very happy, although they did say that they still love Lego!
This will surely be an April Fool's Day that they both remember!
