I just read yesterday that they're going to make Zhu Zhu pets that appeal to boys more. They'll have ninja armor and fight each other. And here I'd been thinking they might butch up the colors a bit since hamsters and caring for pets is not inherently feminine.

While I do see some of the issues with the commercial side of toys, I agree that whatever one's child gets into poses the possibility of endless expenditures. Of course I smiled with your Lego Death Star example. That one still creeps up here from time to time.

I think L. still holds a slight grudge against Santa for not providing him with the Death Star this year.
