How About a Big, Hot, Cheap Christmas
They started coming weeks ago, the print flyers and emails for Christmas toy specials at the on-line sites and big-box stores. Enough to bury you until Ground Hog Day. They tout the Biggest Selection of the Hottest Toys with the Cheapest Prices. Just as with discount sushi bars and on-line dating, Big, Hot, and Cheap are not likely your wisest choice.
An On-line Big-Box Christmas
Just what do the big chains mean by Biggest Selection, Hottest Toys, and Cheapest Prices?
Biggest Selection – This is the biggest lie. They don’t mean a big variety of choices from which you can find the perfect items to fit your gift-giving needs; they mean big piles of the same stuff that you see everywhere else. If you are looking for something thoughtful and unique, forget it.
Hottest Toys – They assume everyone will want this year’s quickly-designed, mass-produced obsessions with TV and movies and all the eye-catching weird gimmicks. The problem with hot is that it quickly cools and often becomes cold. The must-have superhero gloves or internet-connected talking toy often end up in the corner or headed for the trash before Spring arrives.
Cheapest Prices – That’s cheap not valuable. When you think about the cost per hour of play, the $30 toy that provides a few hours of fun before it breaks or gets boring is a lot more expensive than the $100 toy that provides months or even years of enjoyment.
A Fundemonium Christmas
At Fundemonium we feature thoughtfully selected toys that are high-quality and provide lasting value. What do I mean by that?
Thoughtful Selection – We search our suppliers and select toys that offer lasting play value and appeal. Rather than piling up a lot of the same toys we strive to offer a wide selection of unique toys that appeal to many different interests. Better yet, our friendly staff will actively listen to you and help guide you to the perfect present.
High Quality – We prefer toys that hold up to rigorous play and long use. When evaluating toys to bring into Fundemonium we check how well they hold up, what repair parts are available, and what kind of support is offered by the supplier. Our motto is, “If you don’t break it once in a while you are not having enough fun!” The key is selecting a toy that can be repaired and getting it from a local store that is willing and able to help you repair it.
Lasting Value – More important than low price is getting the most value for every dollar. At Fundemonium we layer on extra value with your purchase.
