Since I am a child of the 1970’s, I remember the days of easy toys. I am speaking of the days before computers, mechanics and complication.
Recently I went to the local toy store to peruse the isles, and chose a couple new toys for a friends child. As I was looking and walking the isles, I wanted something simple that would spark imagination. Those were my favorite toys when I was young, the ones that made me give a voice to, or a back story – basically using my imagination.
In this day of electronics and complication sometimes it is nice to go back to a simpler time and simpler toys. When I recently was approached by Dream Frenz for review, since I am all about the simplicity in toys I was eager to receive this.
Gourmet Gift Baskets: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review + Giveaway
If there is one way to describe me, nostalgic comes to mind. I love to see things from my youth, and have began a collection of old toys and advertisements.
One thing that always reminds me of my childhood is candy. I remember when I was young, my father would take me to breakfast each weekend, and while he sat and chatted with friends, I would go over to the general store in the same center and purchase a couple of pieces of candy. My choices were usually items that would give me more candy, for less cost.
When I was recently contacted by GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and took a little time to peruse their website, I was immediately struck with gift inspiration – the first thing that caught my eye was the Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate.
