Remember when Tickle Me Elmo was all the rage? Parents were desperate to find the red furry guy anywhere for any price. Well, move over Tyco.
Christmas just got Trumped!
For generations, toys have mirrored the adult world.
In the 1960s, little girls had Easy Bake Ovens while little boys played with Tonka Trucks. In the 70s, it was still OK to play Cowboys and Indians. Those were the days when little boys loved war themed play sets from the Civil War or WWII. And little girls pranced around in their toy kitchens. Back then, nothing was geared towards the politically correct world we live in now. But, it was easy to extrapolate the values of society just by checking out what the kids were playing with.
Now things are way more complicated, but kids still love toys. And parents love to buy their kids anything geared to enhance their education. It’s all about multi-tasking. The four million Leapsters sold can attest to that. But who knew toys could even pass on family values?
It’s pretty clever, actually. As Trump goes around helping people embrace a little nationalism, one retailer seized the opportunity to reach out to the next generation.
And while leftists are crying and complaining, parents are already putting this new toy on their must-have list.

In fact, the Keep and Bear website might want to brace themselves, because this toy is destined for the Holiday Hall of Fame.
MAGA Building Blocks
The website sets the scene pretty well.
A mob of 10,000 Central American migrants is marching through Mexico and heading toward El Paso, Texas. Mexican border agents attempted to stop them at the Mexican border, but to no avail.
We understand why they want to flee Honduras and live and work in America. After all, we are the greatest nation on earth.
In the interest of national security, however, we cannot allow just anyone and everyone to cross our borders. While there are good people attempting to enter our nation, there are also gangs, criminals, and terrorists. Everyone who wants to enter our country must enter legally for the safety of all.
The wall must be built. The wall will keep America safe and strong. Only then will we be able to help those in need.
We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new line of toys: MAGA building blocks! This toy makes a great Christmas gift for your kids and grandkids!
It even comes with President Trump wearing a MAGA hard hat. What kid wouldn’t want to help the President construct a mighty wall?
It Gets Better!
If you’re wondering if this is a one-trick pony, fear not! There are several others including Trump with Lady Liberty, and my personal favorite: Trump Sends Hillary to Prison. Now they just need Trump with a “you’re fired” button.
Of course CNN is trying to reassure leftists. They’ve already addressed the toys, saying “don’t worry, kids won’t get the political message.”
But I beg to differ. Conservatism is wrapped up in lots of toys. Take Barbie for example. Clearly, she’s a right winger. She has several jobs, and she goes to work for the dream house and the dream car. No one’s ever seen Food Stamp Barbie.
