Rex and his Car

Great part about the start of the year is there are so many new toys to play with.  To the kids their toys are just as, actually more, important as our big kid toys.  So would if they were marketed as such?  Or perhaps juxstapose a commercial for the desired block of plastic with the experience the parent has with it.  That is what I explore here.

Back in my day we had a metal car with pedals that was left out rusted and developed sharp edges that we cut ourselves on.  Oh, the good old days.

    What a heartbreaker.

    And my brother and I had a rusty old fire engine car/truck, with a bell in front, and pedals and we were crazy about it. The best Xmas present we ever got.
