My daughters has been baptised into boardgaming, and although she enjoys the miniatures of X-Wing and the great illustrations of 7 Wonders she does not always "get it"

So while at toy stores over the last few months, she will grab games that appeal to her at face value, but while trying to play she loses interest or will never play it again.

I know junk games exist in many areas, but they sure do markey filler product well...

Its my little pony memory, with a lot of pink. Its also $15.00 more than regular memory...

I think my other issues with the "my little pony universe" is the odd affiliation with grown men buying up merchandise and having little "get togethers"

ITs unsettling....

Its Uno, with crappy pictures of barbie dolls... but it was $10 more than regular uno.... what is the difference?

Some Barbie mechanic?? perhaps a ken bonus card? its gotta be some epic struggle or game system that will revolutionize gaming as we know it.

This is some of the verbal fodder offered by my daughter to convince me of it authenticity...


Plus at first i thought it said
"Barbie CALL girl" i just don't like it!

My daughter went NUTS over this game... Figurines, 3D housing projects, PINK!

I thought she was going to explode. She made compelling arguments and directly compared the similarities of this game to some others in our "adult" collection...

but for $45.00 seriously?!?! My kid does not drive up to toys r' us in her power wheels navigator.... why so much?!!?

Dolls like this are creepy, we often pass by these and i shutter. And the games we have seen; although rare nowadays; are brutal F-grade quality or so old you can smell the previous owner progression of smoking over the last 10 years that permeates the play pieces.

The last thing i need is approaching my daughter for a nighttime kiss only to find one of these dolls gazing eternally through me.... creepy!

Slightly off-topic:

Many years ago I was with my 10-year old nephew at a music store. I was browsing through some of the featured CDs and spotted Sgt. Pepper by The Beatles. Obviously this is an album everyone should own.
"Hey, Nick, how about if I buy you this?"
He picks up a nearby N'Sync CD "Can I get this one instead?"
gulp
"Um..."


I ended up buying him The Beatles anyway.
Doggone kids don't know what's good for 'em.
