With no cable or satellite, commercials on TV around here are pretty mundane -— the latest mattress sale, local car dealers, etc. Of course the national ads are there, but since program pickin’s are slim, the box isn’t on that much.
Her Santa wish list pretty much reflects the lack of inundation as much as it reflects Mommy and Daddy’s willingness to use the word NO.
We don’t have cable or satellite, either. The TV is rarely on so my kids aren’t really asking for much. However, I get a million toy catalogs in the mail. I give them to the kids and have them circle the things they like. It’s fun for them and then I have an instant wish list for the grandparents. They know they’ll never get most of the things circled but they have fun doing it. My husband is in advertising. He’s a writer and it pays our bills. I’d apologize to all of you but he doesn’t write commercials for toys. :0)
