In this world of ipad, iphone, computers, etc. my kids dream toy is the ultra low-tech plastic green army guys you get at the dollar store. I mean, these guys don’t even have bendable body parts!
They’ve been on the gift request list for every gift giving occasion since Calvin was 3. All of the kids love them and play with them. And at any moment in all those years since then, you’re liable to walk into a random room in my house and find an army gathered and positioned for battle. In fact, my very first Instagram post ever, years ago, was of an army guys set up.
It’s one of those things that just makes me laugh.
