I’m prematurely aged. Or, at least I am if you look at the ads on the TV I watch. “Franklin Mint”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franklin_Mint? Check. “Hoveround”:http://hoverounddirect.com/hoveround/unique/98149.php? Check. Good times, good times. But never did I think that I would see an ad like this one:
(I tried to embed the video here, but you’ll have to “go to here to see it”:http://www.hasbro.com/common/swf/flvPlayer/flvPlayer.cfm?video=/common/commercials/Playskool-Commercial-DreamTownMom.flv because, apparently, Flash is too complex for me.)
Hasbro: where little girls’ dreams go to die. Unless those dreams are of doing laundry for everyone. Want a Rose Petal Cottage for to get your little Elizabeth Cady back in line? Hasbro has a “fun Flash experience for you”:http://host.exemplum.com/hasbro/dreamtown_cottage/playskooldreamtowncottagedemo.htm, complete with an ad just for girls! (That other ad is for moms.)
Honestly? I guess the Rose Petal Cottage is great for girls who “plan to get their Mrs. degree”:http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-homemaking11oct11,0,900610.story?coll=la-home-center. Somebody needs to send one of these houses to the Suicide Girls or something.
