Action before style

This, a sling shot flying stuffed monkey toy, is one of the things Corwin recieved as a present on his birthday from his parents. I was talking about it with another parent when I realized something basic.

If it’s just a stuffed animal, it’s lame for a boy Corwin’s age, even if it’s a monkey. But make it so you can use as a projectile weapon on other people and then it is cool. That’s what makes shopping for presents for post-toddler boys so easy. Action trumps style every time.
