It seems that Liam has inherited a tendency to obsess over certain things - surely from his father.
Long before Liam saw the movie Cars he knew the names of most the characters and pointed them out at any opportunity. We got him a little Tow Mater to play with several months ago, and he has played with that thing until it's hardly recognizable. Then Slice came home with a Lightning McQueen for him.
That was the end of it.
He is COMPLETELY obsessed. He totes them both around everywhere, including the table. He insists on sleeping with Lightning at night, and wakes up in the wee hours screaming because he can't find him. He goes for them first thing in the morning. It's becoming a nighttime problem.
This happened once before, with tractors he got for his second birthday. There are FOUR of them so there was no way he could sleep with them all. Slice made a "tractor garage" out of a shoebox that they could sleep in, and that worked out perfectly. Now if we can convince him to let Lightning and Mater sleep in there too....
