Just got off the phone with Junior a minute ago and he was in tears because the World's Best Plane broke in two! This weekend I bought him a balsa wood flyer (powered with a rubber band) You know the ones I'm talking about - the kind you probably had as a kid. https://nt8.magma.ca/technomuses.ca/..._e.asp?pid=706
He must have spent two hours playing with that silly thing yesterday. He has a fancy schmancy $55 battery-powered radio controlled airplane which he played with one time and never bothered to take it out of the box again and he's crushed...CRUSHED that his cheesy rubber band plane broke.
I guess he's a chip off the ol' block in that he favors the low tech entertainment, but I thought kids nowadays were supposed to be enamoured of everything electronic?
Anyone have a radio controlled plane as a kid (or even as a big kid)? What about rockets? How about plastic models of airplanes? And how about the good ol' rubber band planes?
