Last month, Feld Family Entertainment gave us 4 tickets to see the Maple Leaf Monster Jam tour at First Ontario Place in Hamilton. I needed to stay home with our Little Lady, so we arranged for Brian to take Hendrik and our friend Marty took his 5 year old son along.
I wasn’t sure if there was going to be hearing protection available at the show, so I hunted down child-sized hearing protection for $17.99 at Lawlor Safety in the North End of Hamilton. You can get fancy colourful hearing protection for kids at the upscale children’s stores in town, but $55 was a little out of my price range. These suited the boys just fine. And, for the record, if you ever go to a Monster Jam event, you need to have hearing protection, adults and children alike.
The guys had a fantastic time. We had a book about Monster Trucks, and there was a really cheesy show on Netflix last year that Hendrik watched over & over about a little boy & little girl going through their (early 90′s) computer & learning how Monster Trucks work, but that was his only exposure to Monster Trucks. A month on and Hendrik is still talking about the Spiderman Monster Truck (and you have to imagine a 3 year old shouting “Monster Truck” in a gruff ‘scary’ voice).
Besides the SpiderMan monster truck, Hendrik’s favourite part was the quad race – the “Hamilton” team, not surprisingly, beat the “Toronto” team, which H thought was awesome. All in all, it was a pretty quality day out for the guys. I had some peace & quiet at home, so everyone won!
