The
Jesuses Annika Built!

On Tuesday the 9th of April 2002 my day was made when I saw what the adorable 4 year old Annika had done with my Jesus Dress Up game.

Day 1
And she's only 4!
I'd like to see any of you do this!
I bring families together!

Thankyou for the Jesus Dress Up.

My kids love it. They will even eat squash if I tell them they can play with Jesus Dress Up for dessert. I try not to let them on the internet too much because you just never know what kind of garbage they might see. But as long as I am sure they are visiting quality sites like yours they can surf away. It is part of their home schooled education.

Thanks again.

I've directed my neices and nephews here and allowed them to dress up Jesus as they see fit. lol They decided that since Jesus was a man he shouldn't wear any of the girly clothes. They did think Jesus was 'cool' in blue jeans. I agree, since that's probably what He would have worn were he with us today.

Christ is His own defense and where ever his symbols are, therein lies some good. We found it in your site. The kids enjoyed.

Hi Bob,

My four year old daughter enjoyed your site.

She is nothing if not tasteful! She also dressed him (Him?) in the Easter bunny costume. Actually the only reason she consented to give me the computer back is because I told her she could dress up "that funny guy" before bedtime too. So she's been hovering about ever since.

Congrats, Bob, you've achieved the impossible: causing a four year old to ask in eager tones "Is it bedtime yet?" Thanks for the additional URL (Hollywood Dress Up) also; I took a peek and she'll really enjoy that. I think you've got something here. It's like Fashion Plates with a heretical twist. (Fashion Plates were a girl toy in the 80s... they, um... okay, never mind.) Atheist parents everywhere will thank you.

I'm glad you liked the photos. I thought they were hilarious, but I might be biased.

Day 2


Today we printed onto card stock the Jesuses that Annika made and cut them out. Here are some pics for you.
(Annika took the group Jesus photo. You can see her little knee sticking into the picture there. Not bad for a four year old.)

P.S. -- Paul Verhoeven is my favorite director, so the double pun of Jesus-as-Robocop really cracked me up. It's almost too clever.

Looking now at this picture (taken by Annika) I am reminded of that blessed / fateful day when Christ gave His very life for us in a row of crosses high atop that hill, changing the history of mankind forever.... only without Big Bird.
Day 3

Annika:
What's that guy's name?
Hollis: Jesus!
Annika: I like "Henry"
Hollis: No! It's Jesus! Jesus!!

Hi Bob,
Here are the pics from our latest project. It was so successful that I actually became concerned that it would turn my children into Christians. Fortunately, they remain oblivious to religion despite the smartly dressed crucifixion figure on our fridge.

My kids had hours of fun playing with their dressup Jesus refrigerator magnets.

Annika was especially enamoured of the bunny slippers. She said "That Guy's other clothes are good, but I like the bunny slippers the best!"
Here is some more dialog for you.

Hollis: Look, I put this hat on him. American Jesus. Jesus is American!

Annika: No, he's Henry.

Hollis: Noooo! He's AMERICAN!! Jesus is American!!! (cue hysterical laughter)

Annika: Look, he's wearing a skeleton costume. It's pretty.
Hollis: (running away): I don't like Jesus when he's a skeleton!

Annika: Look! He has an M&M for a head! Mister M&M! Hahahaha! Annika: Look at the ghost. Ooooo-oooo-oooo. He's scary.
Hollis: No, put the pirate shirt back on!
Annika:
Nooooooooooo!! Momm-eeeeeeeee!!! Hollis: Mommy, it's MY Jesus!
Annika: No! He's mine! My Jesus!
Hollis:
Mine! [Etc...]


Hollis
(doing the voice of Jesus): Look, I'm a pirate. A Jesus pirate! Arrrrgh Matey! Hey, where'd my pants go?

At the end, they did "the Jesus dance" (shown in the pics) to commemorate the occasion.
All in all it was a fun family activity.
Thanks for the memories, Bob!
