A couple of weeks ago, I had a MEGA purge in our basement of like 80% of our boys' toys. It was awesome.

This colorful display of Care Bears adorned the Just Play Toys at Mom Mixer last week.  It was such a hit.  I still remember when Care Bears came out.  I was just a tiny bit too old to actually have one but I totally wanted one!
