Now? They LOVE LOVE LOVE Pokemon cards. Love them. Can't stop talking about them. Want to buy more. Spend hours going through each card, telling us how much power and how many lives each one has. Take them to camp and after school to trade and discuss.
This is our house, every day, before and after school.
It is the best thing... and also THE WORST THING. Inevitably, the cards lead to bickering. Arguing about cards. Then we tell them to put the cards away.
At least it is a quiet toy this time, and there is no hair pulling or hitting.
