Older SWers. Remember walking into a toy store and it taking your breath away with pure excitement?

I know websites are more cost effective and efficient but I want my kids to have the awesome experiences and happy childhood I had. So it鈥檚 sad they will never walk into a Toys R Us and see floor to ceiling toys and games that make your head spin. For me it was a stimulation overload, Id just forget to breath 馃槀.

You think that's amazing, but the item that I find fascinating is record players.
In the modern era, we have digital recordings of music that we can play on even the smallest device created. But all of a sudden, Vinyl Record players from the 1920's to 1980's are now the leading Tech.

I remember the store we had here... pretty big and sometimes, just too much for me to bother with. lol
I shopped there for gifts and whatnot. And the rumor is that these stores may be coming back, just not like we remember them.

Wow those were the days! That picture of all the Star Wars figures brought back so many happy memories.
