My sister and I were discussing our favorite childhood gifts recently and one that immediately came to my mind was PJ Sparkles. Teddy Ruxpin is still in production while PJ Sparkles has yet to be revived. They naturally have a page dedicated to PJ Sparkles which offers more info than anyone could ever want to know. Did I mention I worked the return counter? Teddy Ruxpin worked for less than a week at our house! Are you sad about Toys R Us closing? I hate that all the stores we grew up with are going away — Sears, Penny, etc. I do remember Teddy Ruxpin and gosh that was an expensive one as I recall. I also know most of the kids that got one had problems with the silly thing. KMart is gone here, Sears is closing, Target is dangerously empty.

I've just updated the Magic Bottle Pets section with better images of all the toys, plus packaging images and even two previously unknown later additions to the line. I've just updated the Nosy Bears section with better images for all bears and bunnies, plus packaging images and lots more accessories!
Marriage offers a chance to develop generosity of spirit and a willingness to be improved by the one we love, no matter what faith tradition he or she may claim. She might not realize how important it is to compromise. Oh, and remember LDS girls are usually good at leading guys on with potential sex to get guys to agree to what they want join the church. But realistically, if she is not open minded enough to even listen to someone who has a contrasting view of the church - how will she not continually discount you and your lack of beliefs. If you aren't sealed together, say good-bye for eternity. My religious faith saved my sanity but I still worry. Better than freezing up and avoiding them altogether.
