a toy for the little man
I came out of Goodwill the other day grinning from ear to ear, which made the husband wonder what I found in the store that was so valuable. It is not valuable but it is a toy that I know the little man will be fascinated with. He loves games like this one on the photo. It says Stats Arcade. This is the first time I have actually seen a toy like this but I have seen this type being played by the little man when he is in the computer. It did not hurt that the toy is only $1.50. It is not a toy or game for me, that's for sure, because I have almost zero tolerance for losing, but the little man enjoys a challenge that is why I bought it for him. We have had arguments over scores because he wanted to beat my score which I must tell you I got from cheating (I tilted the board over so the little round things will go where I wanted them to go). He did good with the game after just a few days but he seems to be bored with it anymore. He did have a few days of trying to figure out how to get a high score so I guess it was worth buying after all.
