Toys And Accessories, Toys And Add-ons, When Do You Stop Buying ...
After buying toys for my kids I am sometimes overwhelmed by how short a time it takes before the latest toy that they always wanted is discarded. Left for dead under the bed or tossed into the wardrobe to be forgotten about. Or sometimes, and these are the times I like, the imagination takes over and the toy is transformed into something else or combined with other toys. I have spent countless dollars on little Barbie dresses and now Barbie is wrapped up in a handkerchief with a shoelace for a belt. I don’t know where this idea for the latest fashion came from, but then again children see things differently ... market research, surveys and trends

The Smart Collector: No one's interested in buying today; selling is the thing
Let's talk money. Doesn't everyone? By our unscientific reckoning, roughly 85 percent of reader mail these days is about selling. Most involve collections or individual items left by a family member.

Truth is, I cannot remember when this column last got an inquiry about buying. It's the times. Collecting has been hit by a double whammy of factors. First, it's the economy. Most readers are so involved in trying to keep ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
