Every year there is that one toy that kids want that adults just can’t find. 2016 looks like it will be the year of the Hatchimal.
2015 I spent going store to store town to town searching for Pie Face for my grand daughter who lives in the same town as me. I eventually found it on Amazon when a supplier got a last minute supply. Thank goodness for Prime. As a grandma, that is my choice.
1998 I searched the globe for Furby for my daughter. I searched. Relatives searched. Internet friends across the globe helped me search. Ultimately it was found about 1800 miles away. Someone made a 3 hour drive to pick it up after giving their credit card info to a store via the phone. It was then shipped cross country to me in time for my daughter to receive it. ( I want to note my daughter was 9, living in a long term treatment facility and it was the ONLY toy she was asking for)
1983 Was the first year I became aware of the GOTTA HAVE IT Toy Craze. It was the year my sister and I woke up without Cabbage Patch Dolls.
Some people might want to call it being spoiled. I like to think of it as keeping Christmas magical for as long as possible for a child.
In keeping with that tradition, I want to help the 7’s in my life keep Christmas Magical for the 7’s in their lives. After all 7 IS MAGIC.
