God ads like this make me want to be a kid again. I think I saw one display that came anything like close to the TRU aisle. I really do feel like I missed out on a lot growing up (well, getting older) where I did.

Two things I took away from that film:

1) if the speculator had been really smart he would have cleared the pegs. I guess the age old issue of money and space stopped that from happening. And fair play to him, it's only because of people like him mean that we have what we do in our collections.

2) I want the name "Kip Power". OMG that's so cool.
