My son has had many fixations over the years; like most boys, he went through a Thomas the Tank Engine phase, then a Ben 10 phase, and finally a Pokemon phase. But now—like, as near as I can tell, every other boy his age—he is firmly entrenched in the Bakugan phase.
Do not ask me what Bakugan are (they’re plastic balls that turn into battle creatures, I think) or why they’re important (though my son would be only too happy to explain—at length), I just know that they’re a big deal. I also happen to know that they’re pretty hard to purchase ’round town. Our local big box stores have been completely sold out the last few times we’ve looked for them (much to my son’s chagrin).
So here’s my Public Service Announcement for other parents of mid-size boys: Bakugan is going to be incredibly hot this holiday season, at which point most of the toys will be neigh unto impossible to find. Be a hero; shop the new Bakugan Store here at Ty’s Toy Box now while the getting’s good. They even have the highly coveted Bakurack Collector’s Case in stock, which my son has informed me is pretty much all he needs to be happy.
I’m just sayin’: In-stock Bakugan. Consider yourself notified.
