Amazon and China

I had the privilege of doing the morning carpool duties today and found that the boys are much chattier in the mornings. Adam was quite thrilled to show off his new Mace Windu Lightsaber that the wonderful UPS man delivered yesterday. Adam had been saving his coins for months for something special, and he shopped for a while with his very proud dad, finally choosing the purple lightsaber.

So, with his new toy in hand, in the carseat, he told Walt about it, again. (Walt had already seen it yesterday during a playdate.)

W: Where did your new lightsaber come from?
A: It came from Amazon.
W: Oh.
A: You can get one from Amazon too.
W: Where did Amazon get it from?
A: I don't know. Maybe Target?
W: I think Amazon got it from China. That's where all toys come from.
A: That's a lot of toys in China!
W: (taking the lightsaber from Adam.) says "Made in China. 2008." 2008. That's a long time ago.
A: That's a big number! (oblivious to the fact that it's a year.)

A: Look! It's the FedEx Forum!


  1. As Josh pointed out in an earlier post, when two years ago is as far back as you can remember, 2008 must seem like a long time ago!

  2. "That's where all toys come from"... classic.
