They come along every few months or so and I never see it coming. It hits, it sticks, we get every toy ever made for it. The boys latest obsession seems like it could be Harry Potter.
It started off with Indiana Jones, went to Star Wars, to Toy Story, back to Star Wars, and now the boy wizard. I don’t know if my basement can take anymore… Just when were starting to run out of toys to get them Mr. Potter casts an evil spell on my boys. It’s evil because I know them too well, along comes the latest- I know Harry Potter has been around awhile- thing to occupy their brain and my boys forget about everything they have ever liked in the past.
I know I should be happy about this as the Harry Potter books should be great fun… But I look at the mounds of toys piling up in the basement, from Higglytown Heroes, to Cars, to Toy Story, to Star Wars that will certainly be pushed aside as we enter Hogwart Hell.
So long Anakin Skywalker, hello Harry Potter. Welcome to my boys brains... wait a minute Scooby Doo is on TV. Uh oh, could it all be happening again?
