i am a mother of 4 kids, 2 sets of twins, ages 5 and 10. i actaully saw offspring at gilman st AGES ago and bought their demo tape and tshirt. all my kids are offspring fans, the 5 yr old is obsessed!! (well he will be 5 in a few weeks) for his bday he wants an offspring room. he watches the videos everyday (he bookmarked the website)
my husband is going to paint the logo on the wall, i am ordering the playset, some cloth posters, and bidding on some old vhs tapes on ebay.

any ideas as other items to get my lil fan!! i was looking for a fan club to join for him, but didnt see anytihng. also i cant find shirts to fit him.....so ill try to make one for him. any other ideas would greatly be appreciated.

anyone know how to get an autographed photo for his wall? his twin will be happy with the age appropriate toys i already bought from them.

thanks!!

Shit, all this sounds so incredible, that I don't know if I should believe it or not! But yeah, the DVDs are a great gift, though I suppose she already has them, 'cause her kid is watching the videos all the time...

your never too old, i am 20 also and last christmas my dad bought me the smiti playset, i was so excited that i got offspring toys for christmas lol. i also got some offspring things from my stepsister, keychains and stuff.

as for the kid, he is only 5 and already a fan, that is crazy, really cool, but kinda suprising i guess you could day.
