I think the first time I received a Beanie Baby was from my late Uncle Reggie. He used to run a country store at Lake Malone but he would also go antiquing and look for new fads. I think every Christmas or special occasion, like when I graduated from college, when he was still active with the store, I got a Beanie Baby.
Don't tell me that guys are not capable of putting out a big effort. All it takes is something that interest us. Great example right here as a new video shows a backyards Hot Wheels track that was 4 months in the making.
