Looking for some respect from Toy sponsors

Though I didn't get an actual invite to the Big Toy Book Sweet Suite during #blogher12, I did get some of the give-aways  from the swag exchange.  It fascinates me that some bloggers have so much stuff that their castoffs look awesome to me.     Makes me wonder what's back in their rooms that made the cut.  

It also amazes me that the toy sponsors do not seem to be interested in the older blogger.  Those big ticket items for birthday and Christmas often arrive courtesy of - grandparents.  So if you want to educate someone about the fancy little kitchen that plays a song about pizza, consider reaching out to the that demographic.  I purchase as many toys as a grandparent as I did as a parent.    And, yes, we baby boomers do use social media to share, as well as old-fashioned word of mouth.

The Kinect 360, for example, is a great example of grandparent-friendly toys.   We can use it when the kids aren't around to view Amazon Prime videos.    And we can't lose that controller in the couch.
