Cruising the Catalogs: Target
Last Sunday, I sat down the newspaper. With papers failing all around us, we decided to support our joint journalism backgrounds and subscribe to the Washington Post weekend paper. Tucked inside was Target’s toy catalog and for the first time in a couple of decades, I had a reason to study it intently. I had to figure out if there were any potential presents for Lucy inside.
Instead of finding anything for her, I discovered a few items that I would have LOVED to have if I were a five-year-old girl again. It left me feeling that I might enjoy motherhood a lot more that I could have ever imagined. Plus, where was Target thirty years ago? And finally, why are all of the dolls’ eyes SOOO big? I don’t get that. They are creepy.
Two toys really popped out at me.
