Shilooohhh! Such a character!
Angelina Jolie (36) has been spending a lot of one-on-six time with the kidlets lately because Brad Pitt (47) is off filming zombie movie World War Z in London and across the UK all summer.
So today she did what lots of us parents do on long days: she took Zahara (6) and Shiloh (5) to the toy store to stock up on goodies -- only this was a pretty high-end toy store called "Toy Station" in a ritzy London neighbourhood.
Us Magazine caught up with Toy Station's owner, Karen Khatchik, and learned that Angelina had a list of toys she wanted for Maddox (10), Pax (7), Zahara, Shiloh and 3-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox:
...sticker kits, tattoo transfers, craft making accessories, Play-Doh, dress-up accessories, "Ben 10" action figures, cowboy guns and a soap-making kit.
Apparently, the Jolie-Pitt family are regulars at the Toy Station, Katchik told Us: "They are a lovely family and we have really enjoyed their visits.... The children are all so well behaved. They'll point things out to Angelina and she's always interested in what they have to say."
Khatchik also insisted that, despite all the toys, Angelina "doesn't spoil the children. They are always allowed to buy a few things but mostly small items...."
And when she told Angelina that Shiloh was "adorable and the spitting image of her father," Khatchik said, "she smiled and agreed with me."
When I read this story over at UsMagazine.com today, I loved it. Angelina gets such a bad wrap in the press, so it's refreshing to read a nice story and to see that big smile. It's also reassuring to learn I'm not the only one who's amazed at what a "spitting image," indeed, Shiloh is of her father.
