Fortunately for Ryan, I was sympathetic to his plight. I remember feeling that way when I was his age, although, of course, I wanted a horse not a helicopter!
Model helicopters aren't like model horses--they don't come pre-assembled. Of course, this is a large part of the appeal for Ryan. He loves building things.
The finished product and one very satisfied almost ten year old!
I hadn't planned to buy myself anything, but I think you can all guess how that worked out...
These photo boxes were on sale for $1.50 each. I've been working on getting all my old photographs sorted and scanned, so this deal was much too good to pass on.
It was the jewelry findings aisle, however, that was my real undoing. Is there a tackmaker anywhere who can resist the appeal of so many shiny little parts and pieces?
