Bringing your toys to work – Bowl of Cheese style
January 30, 2008
Right after the holidays I spent some quality time at my local supermarket examining the cards, leftover eggnog and piles of discounted toys.
It’s beyond me how anyone could do their Christmas shopping at a supermarket (unless you were buying someone a fine Humbolt Fog goat cheese or a case of manarin orange ½ pint cans). So I was dumbfounded when I came upon a toy that was in super-secret probation down at Hasbro when I did some freelancing there a few years ago.
That’s right, it’s the Spidey Spud Mr. Potato Head.
And do you think that I left it on the shelf once I figured out what it was? Hardly.
The happy toy is now with me fighting crime and making people smile wherever I go. I’m hoping Tara and Hasbro invite me back sometime this summer to do some work for them so I can cart this little delight along with me.
What toys have made an impact on your 2008? Leave me a note in the comments or send in a photo and I’ll put it up.
More to come…
