So true, toys always came with that slight edge of disappointment when you realised that your expectations had been too high. I love your lateral take on the subject. Thumbs-up!
I know, I used to search through several boxes before I'd find an Eagle-Eyed Action Man that wasn't boss eyed.Glad the lateral take is ok, I'll try and have an actual animal next time :)
You see those toy adverts from the 80's and it's shocking to find how poor even the ads were, never mind the products... kids are (well...were) very easily conned! Lovely lateral take on the topic, surprising and raises a smile... with a hint of childhood nostalgia and regret ;-)
haha i love the kids expression
HA! great clever take, jon! LOVE the inset eyes and of course, the scrapper in the striped tee! :-))
