me and the kid on Playmobil day

There’s a toy store in Vienna, VA called Once Upon A Time that holds an annual Playmobil Day. They held a display contest featuring photos of local kids’ playmobil displays. Ed, a rep from Playmobil USA is on hand to answer questions the kids and parents have, and they had some of the latest sets opened on a kid sized table to let them get some hands on play with the new sets. There’s also plenty of fresh lemonade and cookies galore. Oh, did I mention all playmobil toys are 20% off that day? It’s fantastic.
You’ll see us there next year hopefully playing with the upcoming Ghost Pirates and Dragon Castle lines. Stay tuned.

(Here is the picture I brought them of my son opening the pirate ship, they hung it up)

This is a hybrid video. Half video of the animals we saw at the National Zoo (this is a great video for kids), half video of my son pointing to the animals for his Grandparents (and you) to aww over.

I think I love the Red Panda the most. They were the most friendly.
If you make a Family Video that has educational aspects, let me see it!

A new report from Reuters is claiming it will take almost $300,000 to raise a child born in 2008 to adulthood. They obviously do not buy Thomas the Tank Engine or Playmobil or XBoxes for their children.
Oh, the article states this doesn’t include the cost of college or childbirth.

Pricetag to raise a child — $291,570

I was recently vacationing at Bethany Beach, (near Ocean City Maryland). On the way into town we passed this vintage toy store and I had to check it out. WOW, talk about a toygasm of vintage goodies cheap. Ninja Turtles, Star Trek, Star Wars, GI Joe, He-Man, Transformers, Playmobil, Thomas the Tank Engine and a whole room for boardgames. Check out my video tour.

Heading east this summer? Vist Yesterday’s Fun, 117 Atlantic Ave near Bethany Beach Delaware.
Did you see anything in there you’d snag up?

The parenting blogosphere has been talking about the Gluton Bebe, (Glutton Baby) toy from Spain. It’s a doll that allows girls (and sure, boys) to simulate the act of breastfeeding a doll baby.
No really… Glutton Baby, The Breast Feeding Baby.

I think my main problem is, that even though the act of breastfeeding is natural and wonderful; just having breasts, real or imagined (or accentuated) is sexual, particularly in our society. (Someone once said, you stab a woman in the chest, the movie is PG-13, but if you kiss her chest, it’s rated R.)
Yes I think our society is a little too puritanical, but I think this toy goes a little too far.

What do you think?
