Commentary: Hot Toys

Every year there's speculation over what will be THE hot toy for Christmas. Commentator Bob Cooks says that, in his house, some of the most wanted toys come from the decade he grew up in — the 80s. But 1980s toys are like the decade's cheesiest synth-pop — something you might get a kick out of remembering, something you might even pull out on occasion, but nothing you would want to inflict on your children. Bob Cook writes online for Flak Magazine.
