Okay, I'm not really going to advocate giving lumps of coal for Christmas, but did you ever think about the things that you really played with as a child? Really, what were your favorite toys?
I remember that burning the trash was one of my jobs when I was a boy. I actually loved playing in the ashes and punching the trash down into the can with the long metal poker that I used. It was actually a lot of fun.
I know! I know! I must have had a rough childhood!
Realistically, though, are kids spoiled these days? I mean, with all of the computer games and videos and electronic toys and gadgets? Or, maybe we were the ones that were spoiled.
There are only a handful of bought toys that I really remember being my favorites. Sometimes the least expensive things are the best. After all, you always hear the complaints of parents when their kids play with the box more than the toy that came in it!
I read a blog post today that talked about "The 5 Best Toys of All Time". It's funny, but, in a big way, it's true. I'll let you click on the link to find out what they are. It really got me to thinking about what is really valuable in life. Is all of the glitz and all of the expense really worth it? Is it good for our kids? At Christmas time this is something that maybe we all should think about. I'd love to hear your comments. What do you think?
