The Next Best Thing:
Think Small!

As if it is not enough to do things badly with new technologies, the race to miniaturize the toys just compounds some of the foolishness, as doing badly in a small way is the ultimate in trendy gadgetry.

It is sad when fashion displaces import and distracts schools from their mission.

The race to acquire the latest small toy and demonstrate membership in the cutting edge club seems foolhardy and reckless.
