after watching toy commercials for the last few years i think that what we buy our kids creates who they are to a degree.when they are infants till 2 years the toys are aboot learning and motor skills.after that the boys turn to dinosaurs and trucks/cars.blocks to build things,little tool sets,action figures,legos,toys that come apart and go back together,things they have to build.girls toy seem to be barbies,kitchen sets,ponys and stuffed animals.how may times can you grill that fake hamburger till its no fun? how many times can you put water on the mermaids head to change its color till its boring???no challenges. no wonder my wife had time to get pissed at me?? i did all the cooking and house cleaning. she had nothing to do to distract her. two of my best friends growing up were raised a little different though. Coby and her sister Shawn rode dirt bikes and snowmobiles and drove trucks .Coby works for the post office and Shawn is a parol officer.so what do you guys think???
