2016 has been quite the year, yet it’s only half over. A lot has happened politically, socially, and environmentally, and things will continue to develop and grow for the rest of it. Music and movies have been hits and misses, and a lot of drama has filled the pop culture wavelengths. But you know what else has happened?
And not just any toys, but our childhood games and toys are being revamped for adults. We’ve gotten to play with our favorite toys again without being ridiculed for it. What a time to be alive!
