In my Black Friday adventure (which you can read about here), I noticed that a lot of the stores we had traveled to had the following item as a doorbuster sale:
It is the "Discovery Kids Cardboard Color Me Play House", here's the link to the Amazon Product Page: http://www.amazon.com/Discovery-Kids-Cardboard-Color-House/dp/B0045H4GNG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
For the low low price of $27.99 this piece of cardboard can be yours for you children to decorate as they see fit. Are. Ya. Kidding. Me? Whatever happened to normal cardboard boxes? My brother and I were entertained for hours by old cardboard boxes from the grocery store or old appliance boxes. We could have a fort, clubhouse, rocket ship, a car, or a castle all at the blink of an eye….and need I mention, it was FREE. What the hell is wrong with these kids today? Do they not have the imagination to come up with these ideas on their own?
You know what I should do? I should market a box containing pillows and blankets and call it "build your own fort" and sell it for 50 dollars. Of course, now that I told all of my blog readers this, I'll have to kill you all. Don't even try to steal this get rich quick scheme…IT'S MINE MINE MINE MINE. ALL MINE.
Needless to say, my kids will not be getting a 28 dollar piece of cardboard from Santa this Christmas.
