The World's Most Dangerous Place to Bring Children?

We went into the Toys "R" Us in Times Square, and once again I was grateful not to be traveling with children. The place is gigantic and seems designed to turn kids into complete lunatics (not that they need much prodding).

There's a car-themed Ferris wheel inside the building...


...along with a giant, animatronic T-rex...


...and Superman saving shoppers from a runaway truck.


The toy selection was impressive, though I don't remember seeing much in the way of marshmallow ballistics.

I do wonder why anyone would purchase this Wolverine claw for their child. Put this on a kid, and he or she is virtually guaranteed to obliterate any breakable items in your home. The toy is also inadvisable if your pets currently have functioning eyes.


And remember, parents: It is your sworn duty to keep the next generation from EVER learning about Jar Jar Binks.


Please take this responsibility seriously.
