Summer Doldrums

A summer of climatic calamities . . .

It has been quite sometime since my last post. As we've turned the corner into September and look back several months, the Toy Dreamer clearly has been silent all summer. But as Bob Glaser, Publisher of Toys and Family Entertainment, aptly stated recently, "There's about six weeks or so during the summer that is historically the worst time for the toy industry. It's a phenomenon that occurs every year...." I'm going to use Bob's comment as the seasonal excuse for an absence of blog posts on Santa Doesn't Make Toys. And the "historic" summer doldrums have been further exasperated in New England by a series of climatic and geologic disruptions like tornado, earthquake, and hurricane. Oh well, enough for excuses. Welcome to autumn and a resumption of more regular blog posts on Santa Doesn't Make Toys.

. . . and a time to take cover !
