Dad turns old toys into Schitt’s Creek Playtown for son


Seeing that Lego devastatingly decided not to produce this adorable Rosebud Motel Lego decor idea for the masses, Todd Cameron took matters into his own hands to make Schitt Creek recreation a reality for him and his son. The same Canadian dad who went viral for decorating his backyard with a David Rose skeleton for Halloween, Todd spent five months meticulously transforming his vintage Fisher-Price toys into a miniature play town inspired by the Pop TV sitcom. The installation includes replicas of various locations in the fictional town, including Rose Apothecary, Café Tropical, Bob’s Garage, Roland and Jocelyn Schitt’s house, and even Mutt’s barn – as well as round Little Tikes figures designed to look like to the main characters of the series.

Todd told POPSUGAR he embarked on the project with the intention of only converting an old school Sesame Street settled into the Rose Apothecary and Café Tropical, but it quickly turned into something more. “The idea was never to use five months of free time, but once I start a project I keep going until my mind is happy with the outcome,” he said. “My process for each building is just getting the basic shape and structure first and then starting with the details, which for me are my favorite to work on. Some remarkable details that we like? The notoriously inappropriate town sign, the bus stop bench with Ray Butani’s face on it, Moira’s colorful wig wall, Jocelyn’s cheese ball, Johnny’s handwritten inscription sheet for the use of the family car and the Sarah McLachlan poster in Stevie’s apartment. He really didn’t miss a thing!

“How Johnny Rose from me!”

Needless to say, Todd’s son got very excited watching his new play town come to life. “Every day for the past three months, my son would approach me while working on a different building or character and say, ‘Are you doing for me? “” said Todd. “And I would say, ‘Yes I am! They just aren’t ready yet.’ He was always like, ‘I’m so excited!’ “Looks like he certainly was when he saw the end result, which Todd showed him this week in their family’s backyard. “[I realized] that I had given the town of Schitt’s Creek to my son. . . how good Johnny Rose to me! “he joked. While sharing the final results on Instagram, he wrote:” Years of playtime to come and many lessons to learn, like how to fold the and that sometimes men have husbands. “
