yeah, i know that was a rather Clinton-esque statement. what i mean is: toys that are made using new/interesting/cutting-edge tech don't give kids a big advantage. who cares if your teddy bear can say 30 different phrases? toys that introduce new/interesting/cutting-edge tech to kids do give them an advantage. i think it's definitely possible to have too many of the first kind: over-priced gimmicks that pass as "tech toys". i don't think it's possible to have too many of the second kind.
