While shopping around online for tuques to keep my head warm during these cold months I came across this cool looking Ninja Turtle hat that was made to look like one of their heads. Sadly it was out of stock or I would have bought it. This however lead me down a rabbit hole of googling and online window shopping and I have since come to realize that the Ninja Turtles are back and a thing again. As someone who lived during the first Ninja Turtle crazy would be well aware, that means merchandising. Lots and lots of merchandising.
So this is where the bad life decisions come into play. I have since come across these fine toys and am now hovering over a buy button but can't pull the trigger. As I sit here looking at these things, the kid in me is jumping up and down screaming as he tries to come up with any kind of excuse imaginable to buy these. These are the kind of toys I would see in the isle as a kid and only dream of owning but now as an adult I can finally own these things. The problem is the adult in me can only see the $100+ I'm thinking of plopping down for a bunch of dumb toys that will sit on a shelf collecting dust for a few years until I get tired of looking at them and throw them out or give them away to charity and all the other things I could spend that $100+ on.
I think I know what you fine folks are going to say, but I figured I would throw a few more voices in to the vote to help sway me one way or the other. So what say you?
