Be afraid, be very afraid!!!!! The landscape of childhood fun is changing, and some toy giants are afraid they’ll get left behind. New millennium kids have Mattel and Hasbro looking over their shoulders! Validation of their fears was made as Mattel’s top seller was: a cell phone case. Somebody please tell these toy manufacturers that although relished with sentimental nostalgia, the days of Barbie, Transformers, and Cabbage Patch dolls being absolute top sellers are over. O-V-E-R! Unless Barbie can chat, text, download, play music, surf the net, kids just aren’t as interested. It’s all about the next coolest gadget. Toy makers don’t be scared, just get with the times. Up your tech game, and you’ll be fine. I smell the launch of a high-tech toy department in their future. Maybe they’ll get it right next year! Merry Christmas!
