Just Don't Drop Them!

I have a small collection of Barbie dolls that I acquired before I had children. Back then, I always imagined that one day I would walk into my room and find that my daughters had torn open all the boxes. Scarlett O'Hara would be wearing the leopard fur hat from Winter in Montreal while Scully and Mulder interrogate the lovely Mademoiselle Isabelle.

But then I had children. BOY children. My Barbie dolls were safe.

My collection of 1:64 scale diecast Elliott Sadler cars, on the other hand, were not.



Oh, well. Can't win 'em all.

  5. I have a boy who is intrigued by them and then announces to us that he is going to play with his "action figures" instead.
