You have a pretty cool room. Tell me about some of your toys?
I have blocks, superheroes, baby things and soft toys. Soft toys can’t go in the bath because they’ll get ruined.

And you have a bunk bed, too!
It’s a Batman bed with Spider-Man sheets.

It sounds like you’re a big fan of superheroes. Which one is your favorite?  
Spider-Man is my best superhero. He has webs.

And I see you have a Buzz Lightyear costume too. What’s his superpower?
His laser! I went on his ride at Disneyland and shot aliens.

You have so many toys. Anything special you want for Christmas?
A red Transformer and a red Power Ranger. Red is my favorite color.

How does your family celebrate Christmas?

We get a tree and hang stockings. We also make gingerbread houses, bake cookies for Santa and write him a note.

Does Santa like your cookies?
Last time there was a big “ate” in one. I think he had some. Or he took a big chunk and gave it to his reindeer.

ON HIS FAVORITE ANIMAL
“I like crabs because they have pinchers, like lobsters.”
