SELL THEM MORE OF WHAT THEY JUST BOUGHT!

A couple of years ago before Christmas I saw a commercial for a toy race car set that I thought my nephews would like.  The set came with two race cars that would light up and a really cool track that could be set up in all sorts of different ways and the icing on the cake was that all the pieces glowed in the dark.  I was so excited as I envisioned the priceless looks on my nephews’ [...]
