The Randoms (Just Say Something! ANYTHING! Edition)

Hooooooo man.  I knew it was going to be harder to find time for the ol' blog,  but SERIOUSLY?  I haven't done a true post since Feb!  There was that one Twitter post, but I haven't kept up with that either.  Probably because Twitter's so boring.  Anyway, there's a lot of things exciting me toy-wise that I'm itching to get to, but before that I want to get this batch of randoms out of the way, which I assembled out of desperation to just talk about SOMETHING.

The Plastic Eyeball is now on Twitter!  Why?  I don't know.  I'm hoping it's an easy way to keep up the toy talk while my time to write spotlights on the blog is reduced by child rearing.  That doesn't mean I'm giving up the blog; I'm simply adapting to new situations.

Visit the new Twitter page here, and we can keep on keeping on.

Cheap and Skeezy

As if I wasn't already finding it hard to keep up with the blog, I had to go and have a baby and eat up more of my precious free time.  Well, technically my wife had the baby, but either way, my free time is gone.

First Toy of the Year (2015)

Wow, 2015!  It sounds so futuristic!

My hunt for the first toy of the year started much like my hunt for 2014's last toy of the year: with disappointment.  Yesterday the stores I went to were pretty picked clean.  Today I went to Toys R Us and found it closed.  Do places still take New Years Day off?  Well, good for them I guess.  Anyway, I hit up Walmart instead.  It was also picked clean, though I did come across a Skylanders trap I didn't have - the Oak Eagle of life.
