Do they still do that anymore? I remember the smell of those things. It was almost as cool as the actual presents on Xmas morning.
My parents also used to take us out to ToysRUs to play in the store and get ideas to make our wish lists - but it was really more about what playthings we could ride around the store and what video games we could play in 5min increments.
Being kids - we already knew what was on our list. Didn't need no stinking ideas because we couldn't think of anything. Now that I'm typing this, I'm realizing that my parents took us there so they could price everything out in order to figure how much they'd end up spending on Teddy Ruxpin and a Nintendo.
Meanwhile, my brother and I were running rampant on pogoballs & bigwheels.
Anyway, here's my list for Christmas 2009.
