Allie and Kaya the Fennec baby twins had become good at sitting up.
"Time to make high chairs for them!" said their father Ronald and their mother Sharon.
This was an exciting project for them—Ronald was a sand artist and Sharon was a picture book writer, and they both loved coming up with ideas for things to make with their hands.
"Allie's needs to be very comfortable," said Ronald. "He always takes his time, so it takes him a while to finish his meals."
"Kaya likes looking at the stars," added Sharon. "So let's give her a high chair with a night design."
They got to work and before long they had two lovely high chairs.
"Dinner time!" called Sharon that evening.
She put Allie in his new high chair. Allie spent so much time looking around that he took even longer than usual to eat his dinner.
Meanwhile, Ronald tried to put Kaya in her high chair by the window so she could see the stars, but it was too dark and Kaya was scared.
"It looks like these high chairs were no good," said Ronald.
"We need to make different ones," agreed Sharon. "But what kind of high chairs will they like?"
Ronald and Sharon couldn't understand what had gone wrong.
But the next day, they found the answer.
They happened to put the two high chairs next to each other, so Allie and Kaya were sitting side by side. The twins looked at each other and smiled. Allie ate his breakfast much more happily now that his sister was there.
That night, Ronald and Sharon set up the two high chairs side by side by the window. Kaya wasn't scared of the dark with her brother there, and sat there for a long time, admiring the stars.
"They like to be together," said Ronald. "We should have remembered that."
"They love to be with us too," added Sharon. "Whenever we leave the room, they start crying. They want to be with us all the time."
Ronald and Sharon thought of something else they could make for Allie and Kaya to sit in. But they needed some help.
They went over to see Vincent the Husky father, who was a car designer.
"Leave it to me!" said Vincent, smiling. "I'll make just the thing!"
Before long, Vincent was finished. "This is for you," Ronald and Sharon said to the twins. It was a twin stroller with sweet little fennec ears.
Allie and Kaya loved it. Every day they'd sit in it while their parents took them for a walk, Sharon read them a picture book or Ronald worked on his sand art nearby.
Before long, the stroller became such a special part of the house that the family felt like they had always had it.
