Posted by Alex Stark on February 08, 2018

My six-year-old daughter had accumulated a couple of Toys-R-Us gift cards. We found them by accident one day while cleaning out her room (but that’s another story).

Anyway, we jumped online and ordered the equivalent of $50 in merchandise, which was to arrive between 5-7 business days.  I quickly moved on to other things.
