    My son is 17 months and he actually prefers his plastic trucks, tractors and animals to the toys he has that light up and make noise. I suppose that might change, but I don't think it will since my wife and I do so much pretend play with him. While I do feel nostalgic about the experiences I had that he will miss out on, I am generally of the mindset that the world is doing ok and that stuff from "back in the day" wasn't necessarily better. The really good stuff endures!

    I haven't a clue what y'all are talking about...crackerjacks?
    Sounds like I'm missing out on something gooooood, though.

    Cracker Jacks is a snack made with caramel covered popcorn and peanuts and has been around for over 100 years here.

    Ooh, they sound tasty! How come I've never noticed these on my previous travels to the USA?
    Looks like I need to book another holiday now just to rectify this situation.

    Mmmm, my kids get Cracker Jack, have been for years. I'm not sure they even like it but I do, and they always like the prize, even though the prizes now are pretty bad even compared to the crappy prizes I got years ago as a kid (rings, tattoos, plastic airplanes, etc).

    Depends on whether you like popcorn and a sweet/salty food combination I guess. Not something I've eaten since my kids were little, but I used to enjoy it every so often. You can probably find them in most grocery and convenience stores.

    I just like food, and am willing to try anything at least once.

    One thing I forgot to mention. In our neighborhood we have kids who play outside. Yes - I said outside. No phones, no IPads, no electronics of any kind. Just bikes and balls and on old tire. AND they're polite. Love these kids.

    Free-range kids! Our neighborhood has a fair number of them too. We even occasionally have an ice cream truck stop by.
