Imagine an old man who does a podcast. He decides to travel down memory lane and talk about the toys of his youth. Will the younger listeners roll their eyes and listen to something else?
On today’s show I am going to talk about three toys that were incredibly popular in my day; Ouija Boards, Lego and Mr. Potato Head. I am sure that anyone over the age of 40 has played with some or all of these at one time or another.
So, I wish happy holidays and happy New Year to all. I hope all your dreams come true.
