I remembered having Jacks! You guys remember Jacks? The marbles and the little spiky things? Oh man, I loved marbles. I would spend hours a day playing with those things. AND ARMY DUDES! Oh, I adored those little plastic army dudes! There were so many cheap, makeshift toys I use to play with when I was a kid! There were even outside things I would do to occupy my time! Like a Frisbee! :D Today, on such a bright, beautiful day, my niece and nephew stayed inside and played on their iPhones and they're 3DS's for a good bit of the morning. I tried to get them to come out and play good old fashioned tag, but they'd much rather play Doodle Jump and such. It scares me! It scares me how much technology has an impact on society, especially the kids! They're only 8 and 9 and they don't even want to go out on a wonderful, sunny day! D: How do you all feel about technology today and the effect it has on the kids? And, besides that, do you remember what toys you all played with when you were a kid? Any suggestions on what I should do to get my niece and nephew active again?
