I’m not entirely sure what the Japanese toy manufacturers are trying to do to their kids but holy hell. We may be banning the wrong people from coming into our country.
Japan appears to be a breeding ground for nutsos.
What child could possibly resist this warm n’ fuzzy snuggle whatever the hell it is?!
Can you imagine putting one of these on your kids’ bed or in their crib??
japan-creepy-faceUm. I don’t know. Su-SHE..??Is this the Japanese equivalent of a “wet willy??”
Not sure if this is a kid’s toy or an adult toy…
And the creepiest misfit Japanese toy of them all????
You can shave the baby??? What do these Japanese people think we do over here?? And apparently only to “ginger” babies because there are no brunette, blondes or black haired babies to shave. I checked.
This is so disturbing…
And yet. The Japanese are known for their science and technology..
If American kids had these toys they’d become serial killers. Just sayin’.
It’s almost the weekend. Anybody have plans??
My plans will change with the weather.
If it’s nice I’ll be out. If it’s not I’ll be in.
I’m pretty easy peasy that way.
Mimi’s quote for the day – (Maybe his parents were Japanese..)


First, I would turn it back to when all of my kids were little and at home. I don’t want to change anything because every word and every deed brought me my 3 amazing grandbabies. I just want to spend more time, take more pics, have more talks, more hugs, more kisses..  More “I love yous,” even tho grown son #2 told me just yesterday that all of his friends ask him why we say I love you so much. Then my son and I at the same time said, “Like you can say I love you too much.” I’m happy my kids still hang onto that.
2017-because-you-are-my-child2017-divider-line-blue-icySecond, I would turn it back for all of the cool stuff from my childhood.
This was my favorite toy ever. I kept myself entertained for hours until my brother came along and bumped my masterpiece.
2017-toys-etch-a-sketchI had this Barbie head too and melted the hair when I tried to use a curling iron on it.
I used to love playing these on the kitchen floor and the driveway.
2017-toys-jacksThis stuff is still around and altho as a kid I thought it was very cool, what the hell were my parents thinking??? This stuff is SO toxic.  Every time you inhaled to blow the balloon bigger you were inhaling those toxins.
2017-toys-plastic-bubblesMy favorite car ride toy.
2017-toys-wormAnd EVERY Sunday I would wait sooooo stinkin’ patiently for my dad to finish the Sunday paper so I could have the funnies and do this…
2017-toys-silly-putty2017-divider-line-blue-icyI miss the simple stuff. Mostly I miss the people I used to share the simple stuff with.
I still buy coloring books – the real ones not the over-priced “adult” coloring books – and crayons and I can lose myself in coloring for hours.

If you could turn back time but change nothing, where would you go, what would you do and with who?

What are some things you miss from being a kid?
2017-divider-line-blue-icySorry for the late post. We actually got a foot of snow today and more is coming down. I’m so surprised. Last year we had a couple of dustings. I had to run to the store before everyone else was running there. So happy I made it there and back without personal incident altho I did witness several fender benders, sideswipes and fish tails going on around me.

They don’t salt the roads here. They put a deicer on them and then sand but they only do it on the main roads so getting around our neighborhood and out onto the main road was slow going and a little hinky.

It’s good to be home safe n’ sound. Time to snuggle in with my book and some cafe’ mocha.
Happy Wednesday!
