I love toys – I’ve never outgrown finding joy in cartoon characters, bottles of bubbles, yo-yos, Cabbage Patch Kids or wind-up toys. Sadly, as an adult I have to confine my love to “appropriate times” (such as Alexis’ birthday parties)… but at Christmas, I have a whole new reason to buy toys.
I don’t have any specific little people to buy presents for – which I’m pretty grateful for, actually. The thought of my friends or sisters having kids is horrifying. But, the annual Toys for Tots drive gives me a great reason to haunt the toy sections.
Usually, I can contain myself to buying one present. But this year… I may have gone a little overboard. I bought beading kits and Barbies, and the cutest little Hello-Kitty castle. I found a darling Strawberry Shortcake music/jewelry box and a great set of My Little Ponies. It was awesome – I got to relive all my childhood memories, and sort of pass them on to other little girls. And thanks to Marshall’s low prices, I didn’t even break the bank. The cute little piggy bank I found.
