Every fall, when the Rainbow Resource Center toy catalog comes, my kids spend hours pouring over it and picking out all the things they would like to have. I have no problem with this because the toys in the catalog are educational and quality, and I always make a big order from Rainbow Resource at Christmas time.
The kids all know I like to buy high quality plastic figures (Schleich or Safari brands) so they pay special attention to those in the catalog. This year there was one they all immediately wanted. I saw him and knew we needed him at our house, so I bought. Then I couldn't decide who to give him to since everyone wanted him, so I put him on the mantel and he was there looking down on us on Christmas morning. He's still there. I believe he is going to be a long-standing household icon.
Meet Grumpy Dragon. He makes me smile.
