Ages 3 - 25

During last weekend, I attended a 2 year old's birthday party. No, I wasn't trying to meet Mariska Hargitay, from Law & Order: SVU, this was the child of one of emily's coworkers. Before the party, we had to get some sort of gift for the little guy. As we wandered through the toy aisle, scanning for something the the kid wouldn't choke on, I began thinking about toys from my own childhood.

My parents pretty much spoiled me rotten, so I typically didn't go wanting for toys (I had one of these, remember?) Probably my only disappointment was never actually owning a Power Wheel. Those things were awesome. I wanted one of the Jeep off-roading kinds so that I could cruise around the construction sites near my house, helping the workers with my sweet front end towing winch.

We ended up getting the birthday boy something along the lines of a Hot Wheels racing set, but the temptation to pick up something for myself was fierce to say the least.

I used to remember Toys R' Us as a glorious store full of endless enjoyment. Walking each isle with my pops before Christmas picking out questions was one of my favorite things to do.

Now, I feel that Toys R' Us is full of WT's and its kinda trashy. Honestly, I'm pretty sure you could just drive one of those cars out of Toys R' Us now. Not that I would recommend it...just saying you could.
