The good news is we have successfully found a niche with toys that works for us. The bad news is that it's small and we have a ton of junk that is hopelessly unsellable. Notice the dead polar bear carcass on top of the pallet above and you'll get the idea. What does work are craft supplies, puzzles and learning tools. Forget everything else.
I could go into a long rant about how the return policy of this particular toy company has made me insane, but I think the photo tells the story. I also have to apologize to the war gamers, whose aisle I've blocked by this monstrosity of dead bears and dollhouses. If they felt ghettoized before, how about turning their aisle into a loading dock? The pallet is supposed to be gone by now. We timed it near perfectly, but the freight company had problems yesterday and re-scheduled for sometime today, Friday, our busiest day. Lets just hope they show.
