I miss shopping for toys

Does anyone else like shopping for kids toys like I do? When my grandsons were young, and even my kids, I would go into the stores and start up so many toys that made noise or moved around. One of my favorite ones was Elmo. My husband would walk away from me as I embarrassed him. I enjoyed it then and I still do if I happen to be in the toy section in the stores. I will never forget the sounds of, Hey Burt, yeah Ernie!!!!!!

@amadeo I always give things for Toys for Tots. My husband is an Elk and they have a big container to put the toys in. Being I don't have little ones to buy for any more I still like to go to the toy stores and get something like it was for one of my own grandchildren.

You can still shop for kids by donating to Toys for Tots. I like pushing the 'try me' button too.

We do donate to Toys for Tots every year as my husband is an Elk and they always have a big box to fill up.

My brother and I used to do that with the toys by the door at KB TOYS. My mom would laugh at us and continue going to or out of the store.. she knew it was going to happen everytime

I am 75 and still do that. I relive my life when I go in the toy stores or departments.

You and Vince would make a good pair. I'd be walking away - quickly - with your husband.

Over the years, it was fun to shop for toys for our son, nieces and nephews. Some toys just have to be played with no matter how old one happens to be.

@ramapo17 That is true. I have always loved working in retail during the holidays. So many other employees complain, but I think it's totally awesome!

It's a strange feeling the first year none of your kids want toys. Sad how fast they grow up. At least, Burt and Ernie will never change.

You seem to still preserve traces of childishness,which is a good frame of mind.
