Seriously though. Why spend more than $20 when they're just going to break it within the first five minutes, or better yet, play with the box instead? When I was a kid, my only toys were a wooden spoon and a rolled up piece of Scotch tape covered in dog hair. Ahhh. Those were the good ol' days. Hours of quality entertainment.
If you subscribe to the "children are to be seen and not heard" notion, shame on you. Everyone knows that they should neither be seen nor heard. Why do you think we sell toys like this anyway? So you can enjoy the way their precious little faces light up when their imaginations run wild? No. It's to keep them from scratching at the door when you lock them in a sound-proof, windowless room.
