Dressing up mannequin, the horror!
When Ayden was younger, he got very afraid of mannequins in the malls as they usually come without eyes, nose, mouth and all. Some even come without a head! LoL! Imagine his horror of seeing a headless person lah. Sometimes he sees mannequins without legs and that scares the heck out of him too.
Only recently he started to accept mannequins as they are; be it without a head, arms, legs or any other body parts.
Last weekend we went shopping while big brother Ethan was in school for replacement class. We happened to witness a sales promoter dressing up a mannequin.
Do you know how this is done? Mannequins have stiff arms that do not bend like us. They can’t bend their arms in order to get their arms into the sleeve of the shirt. What they can do is let the promoter pull out their arms, put the shirt through and fix the arms back in.
I never thought much about it until Ayden shouted to me, ‘Mummy! That kakak CABUT the man’s arm!’
Hahahahaha! It must be a very horrifying sight for this little boy. I can see that he was terrified. But I kneeled next to him and explained that it does not hurt lah. Mannequins are not living things hence they don’t feel the pain. And I let Ayden watch until the kakak is done dressing the mannequin up and all body parts are nicely reattached.
Boy… Seriously I never know that pulling an arm off a mannequin can scare a little boy until I’ve seen in in Ayden. Thank goodness he does not have nightmares that night :D
