VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (FTN) – Two Terre Haute parents are laughing to themselves as their toddler plays inside of a cardboard box.
The laughter comes after realizing this is the same box his birthday gifts came in.
Those parents are Chris and Ami Essex.
“It took us a few minutes to realize the irony,” Chris said, while watching his son Alex play inside of the box. “When we took the gifts out and hid them, as put the box by the door to go to the trash.”
His parents say Alex is drawn to boxes.
“How does the stereotype go? Give a kid a room full of gifts and he will only want the boxes?” Ami said.
His birthday gifts were delivered on Thursday, but with his birthday still over a month away he won’t be playing with those new things anytime soon.
“We’ll keep the box around for a couple of days. Some free entertainment,” Chris said. “I just find it so funny that his presents came in the box.”
There’s no word at this time what those presents actually are.
