Out of the Blue

Babes in a Grown-up Toyland (registration required) is an interesting read (thanks Mike Martinez) for a quiet Sunday that correlates the changing nature of toys with other implications, asking the question: "As toys change, has play itself fundamentally changed? For that matter, does the early attachment to grown-up toys in some way shorten in the imaginative world of childhood, with its pretend tea parties and make-believe cops and robbers?"

if you want a novel souvenir (and can get it thru Customs):
visit any major shopping mall in China, wander over to the Bedroom Furnishings Dept. and there you will see stacks of inexpensive sleeping mats each sporting a BIG POT LEAF product label tag, proudly proclaiming the item to be made of "100% Pure Hemp".


What's the big deal? People have grown hemp for textiles for millennia.
