Is it broken?

April 11, 2010

ONE chore that any parent has whose kids are provide with an orgy of excess is the cleaning of ToyBoxesBins.

Through time, they’re rolls change. New toys break and some lines, like Littlest Pet Shop have crazy tiny accesories that moms and dads across America vacume up and throw away, those that survive linger at the bottom of the receptical with pieces of puzzles and broken crayons; scraps of paper and stickers long lacking in adhesion. Having multiple children yields at least one possible fate for the missing sock; the bottom of that bin.

Today, I took on that task and found a long forgotten toy recieved for a birthday or Christmas. It is a collection of little doll figured about the size of a Polly Pocket. But you don’t dress these; they’re disected like little Black Dahlia’s and to change their outfits, you swap heads and waists with torsos. I’m disserning enough to realize that these little odds and ends of bodies are actually not broken. My wife; not so much. I just wanted to take the time to acknowledge how bad a concept this toy is.
