Toy stores suck.

So I went looking for Spacewarp or something like it on Friday as promised. First I went to ToysRUs. In their construction toys section they had Legos and K'Nex, and that was *it*. Zany Brainy was a little better - they also had Rokenbok. But what happens to all of the millions of wonderful construction toys I had when I was little? What happened to just plain old building blocks, and erector sets, and race track building sets, not to mention wonderful things like spacewarp. I remember going into Toys R Us when I was little and there would be a whole long huge aisle *full* of construction toys, with no single brand taking up more than three or so shelves. I never even had legos when I was little because there were so many other great things out there.

Sigh.

Our new couch has received the Napping Seal of Approval. I meant to lay down for 20 minutes and woke up 2 hours later feeling very comfy and happy :)
