I’m so jealous of kids nowadays. They have the internet, MP3s, YouTube and apparently more money than I did when I was growing up. Walking down the toy aisle at Target always fuels my envy. With Paul and I being trapped in the bodies of adults, we always spend lot of time looking at toys and collecting them. If you’ve ever visited our place, you’ll know what I mean.
The latest target of my jealous are all the baking toys available. Instead of just having the Easy Bake Oven, there are pastry decorating toys for actual edible desserts! As someone who never owned an Easy Bake Oven, I feel envy for my next door neighbor all over again.
Admittedly, the cool thing about the packaging for some of these toys is that Duff from Ace of Cakes/Charm City Cakes is prominently displayed on the box. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to find a kid, tell ’em how I used to record TV shows on my portable cassette recorder because we didn’t have a VCR or YouTube when I was growing up. That will make them cry.
I love Mother’s Cookies. There were an integral part of my childhood. When I thought they were going out of business, I was heart broken but they’re back!
With their return, I’m giving away a bag of Circus Animals and Taffy cookies courtesy of the poople who make Mother’s. Leave a comment by November 30 and one lucky person will have free cookies delivered to their doorstop. And what’s better than free cookies?
