Toys R’n’t us.

According to Toys R Us mindless consumption and “hotter toys” are better than a trip to the forest. While I get what they are trying to do – get kids toys who may not -the juxtaposition with nature is troublesome at best. The bigger message: “Forget nature and immerse yourself in mindless consumerism for true happiness.”

  1. SubhanAllaah – this brought tears to my eyes. We live in a strange world. By such exposure we are doing nothing but depriving our children from the real happiness, which is never to be found in materials.
