Christmas Shopping? Remember What We Used To Shop For?

Christmas is almost here and you’re making last-minute shopping runs to find just the right gift.  For the kids, you’re hoping that they’re not out of the special toy/electronic gadget they want.  And, this year, electronic seems to be the operative word.  Younger and younger children are asking for the latest and greatest, whiz-bang, electronic “thing” whether it be the iTouch, Leap Frog, whatever.  I think even Fisher-Price has a simple computer for little ones.

Remember the “good-old-days” of the 90′s.  That’s not that far back, but we sure weren’t buying computers.

The hottest toys then were Beanie Babies,
