history, has announced they will stop making the electronics and
movie tie-in products. This would include Mindstorms, one of the
greatest educational toys ever produced." It saddens me greatly to
see the toy that was such a mainstay of my childhood to be in such
dire financial straits. If I were a more qualified sociologist, I'd
think it may have inspired by the way that our children play today
versus how they played twenty years ago.
