daisy_knotwise got her birthday present from me early this year, because there was no prospect that it would still be in the store when it got close to her birthday. It's a two-foot tall audioanimatronic fake stone gargoyle. When you trip the motion sensor, its eyelids open, its wings move back and flap, its eyes glow, and its mouth moves as it tells you about the dangers lurking inside.

Naturally, Katie loves it.

The funniest thing we've seen so far is Katie standing there listening to the gargoyle mouth off to her with her stuffed Pooh bear held straight out in front of her like a talisman against evil.

Either that or it was, "Eat him! Not me!"
