The Power of Marketing

Some of my favorite songs from childhood happen to be commercial jingles that to this day bring me back. Who can resist reminiscing when she/he hears the infamous Toys R Us song..."I don't want to grow up, I'm a Toys R Us kid..." (go on, finish the song, you know you love it too.)

Now lil B has started to absorb some of the catchy jingles. The first one was the Band-Aid commercial. (This being a favorite of my childhood too.) No matter what lil B is doing or where in the house she is, lil B will stop and sing along. Everybody now - "I'm stuck on Band-Aid brand, 'cause Band-Aids stick on me".

lil B's most recent favorite - the Subway commercial. "Five dollar, five dollar foot longs..." Is this comparable to "My bologna has a first name..."? Time will tell.

Anyone seen the Toys R Us toy catalog this year? I still salivate at the sight of it. If only Santa was still around for adults.
