Toys: Pro & Con

Toys are playthings that spark creativity. Children use toys to
develop their imagination and grow into adulthood. But adults use toys to
stifle their imagination and revert to childhood. Toys are a magical
device for the magical time of childhood, which, sooner or later, we must
all leave behind. Toys are for children, not childish adults.
