Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Never Say Never
Over the years many of the items we've sold have been discontinued. Many of these items have their fans, who call and ask, "Do you still have . . . .?" It could be the KingKong bank, or the singing hamsters, the crashing hammer, the venus flytrap bank, the whistling mirror or -the little rubber jungle animals by Takara that walked and looked so realistic. And we always say no, we're so sorry, they were discontinued years ago, we can't get them anymore. Today at the Gift Show I was in the Can You Imagine booth and saw - the little rubber walking jungle animals! They've been revived, and they're back. So . . take heart all of you who are longing for items we no longer can get - if the jungle animals are back who knows what might be next?
