One of the latest finds at the favorite toy store: Tomica Nissan GT-R.

The children know what car models to buy and they don’t settle for those outrageous designs that are not “real cars”. Most often, we give in to them and get these toys for them, not because these are not expensive, but because they know cars well.
Even if I’d rather they hurry up so the husband can look over wholesale shoes at a newly opened store that sell these things, I know it is a lost cause when we are in the section of toy stores with these little treasures.
SM Toon Fest brings K-Pop Rising Star fashion to the young girls and boys who want to dress up in glitzy, glam, funky, spunky bright colors and bold patterns featuring their favorite characters like Hello Kitty, Robby Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, and Marvel Superheroes like Spider-Man are just a few of the licensed characters represented by the line. Old favorites like the Disney Princesses, Disney Fairies, and the Sesame Street gang also have their own quirky-yet-stylish collections. Garfield, Mickey Mouse, Cars, Dora the Explorer, Betty Boop, Snoopy and Barbie complete the characters.
“Kids today are a lot more conscious of what’s ‘in’ and get fashion ideas from their idols“, states Ms. Jo DyJuanco, VP for Children’s Fashion, “These days, they draw inspiration from K-Pop stars and want to dress just like them.”
To showcase the new collections, SM Toon Fest is holding a search for its K-Pop Rising Star. The song, dance, and lip-synch competition invites boys, girls and groups aged 2-14 to let their inner superstars out for a shot at the spotlight and the Php100,000 grand prize!

Fast cars. My children love these: car shows, racing games, and car toys. They do not settle for those mind-boggling/out-of-this-world designs but instead opt for real car designs.
Can you name the make (and if you are good with these, model) of these cars? Except the last two on the bottom of course
Great weekend to y’all!
Been busy yesterday afternoon and last night watching a DVD of Bullrun, as I have Plurked this morning which of course can’t be seen since I have my time line set to private.
Anyway, in my Plurk thread, I wrote this about the team BMW M3 that I was rooting for:
been keeping myself busy: am watching Bullrun, a reality show car race from Montana to Mexico. There was a Filipino contestant (not so sure) there who…
who had to forfeit their place to another team because they have to go home since an uncle died. Before he left the show, he said that…
“Money is not everything” He was even wearing a Noli me Tangere* shirt then. To you, I say
Bullrun is exciting. That my son refused to sleep and wanted to finish the whole series could attest to the excitement of the series. Or maybe he really is just really into cars.
The car he was rooting, a Nissan 240SX retired early from the game. I wonder if it was using a supercharger because it was so powerful! It just so happened they weren’t able to fix the car on-site.
*Noli Me Tangere is a novel written by the country’s national hero, Jose Rizal.
