Peggy inherited from Miriam a large number of small Fischer-Price
“people” and toy animals. Today Peggy played with the toys in my

toys, as people — and language addressable creatures, about where to
walk and what to say and what to do (nothing more elaborate than “go
down here” and “Say ‘Hi, kids’.”)
