It was a cold night. The strong wind was blowing into my room through the wide-opened window. I felt chills running through my spine. I was reading a book about giants under a warm, cozy blanket. A glass of hot cocoa sat beside me. My parents were snoozing in their bedroom. I was really into my book. After I read it, I started to wonder about giants.

Suddenly, a beam of light lit through the window. It hurt my eyes like someone was squeezing lemons in them. After a few seconds, it disappeared. I ran to the window and looked out. I spotted little people. They feasted their eyes on me as if they were going to eat me the moment I caught their eyes. They were only about 6 inches tall. One of the little people started to point at me with its little gun. Fear ran through my body. I hadn`t even a second left to yell. It blasted me with its little gun. I collapsed.

I woke up the next morning and figured it was all a dream. Everything seemed normal until I stood up and realized that I was only 6 inches tall… the same height as the little people! Even my pyjamas shrank. I started to scream eventhough I knew that no one would hear it. I felt like a mouse which was squeeking with hope that a deaf person would hear it. I could hear my mom calling for me. I hesitated. I panted. I had no idea what to do. I realized that the incident last night was for real! I slid down my bed and landed with a big smack.

I went out of my bedroom. My heart pounded loud the moment I saw the stairs. They were humongous! It took me about 40 minutes to reach downstairs. I was trying to catch my breath because I was so exhausted. My mom yelled for me once again. I knew she was furious. She always gets mad whenever people do not respond to her. I ran outside. Thank god the front door was open! I had to find the little people.

But I just couldn`t be so sure that everything would turn out fine, my pet dog, Albert, thought I was his “dog toy” and wanted to play with me! I ran away from him screaming, “Albert, boy, it`s me!”. He caught me with his paws and drooled all over me. I hit him hard on his paw. He let go of me. I started to run saying, “I`m never ever going to buy you a new dog toy, Albert!”. I was relieved when I saw the little people`s little space ship(I think). I ran near it and said, “Hello?”. After a few seconds, a little person came out of the “space ship”. It said, “How may I help you?”. I was wondering how they knew English, but no time to answer that. “Why did you zap me with your gun last night? And what are you guys? ” I said . “We mistook you for an enemy of ours. I apologize. Do not worry, we will take care of your problem. We are aliens from the planet Zaht, but please do not tell anyone” replied the little person. I felt secure and relieved to hear that. “Aliens? I thought so! Aliens are cool! And don`t worry,  won`t tell anyone! Why are you and your alien friends still here, by the way?” I asked. “Our space ship broke down, we are still fixing it. I will change you to your normal form now” replied the little person.  I stood still and he(I prefer to call the little person him now, because he could talk) blasted me once again with his little gun.

After a little while I bursted up to the sky! Suddenly, I was my normal self again! I was happy. I said “thank you” to the little man and he saluted me. I ran into my house and told myself not to tell anyone about this since I promised the little man that I would not. My mom saw me and yelled, “Where have you been, young man?! Couldn`t you hear me calling for you? Go change into proper clothes and eat your breakfast!”. I obeyed her orders and quickly ran upstairs to change. I looked out my bedroom window and there I saw the little people`s space ship flying away. I waved good bye and smiled. I thought to myself, what an experience!

This is not just a toy. It is a metaphor. (kids, look it up) It seems we spend all our days hopelessly trying to make progress, only to find ourselves right back where we started.  Sigh.

But you didn’t come here to be depressed… you came here to look at stupid toys. So forget what we said about the futility of human existence and check this out…

The Wheel Runner is a little mechanical Hamster who scurries inside a running wheel. As the battery-powered critter tries to run, the wheel spins under him so he can never progress very far.    

It’s really cute, and will make you smile. (Until you’re reminded how the pathetic hamster mirrors your own frustrating life. And then it stops being cute, and becomes a cruel joke on us all.)

This is a toy for someone who thinks small. Most people dream of one day owning a mansion. Less ambitious folks may hope for a nice house, or perhaps even an apartment.
But it takes a total UNDERACHIEVER to fantasize about owning a HUT.

BUILD YOUR OWN HUT

From the Orient comes this delightfully weird toy. It’s a small plastic hut inside a colorful box. (The colors and graphics must not have changed since the 1950s.) 

When you take the lid off the hut, you are in for a wonderful surprise. It is packed… and we mean packed FULL… with everything you need to make your hut the impoverished wonderland you’ve always dreamed about.

You get pigs, ducks, cows, geese, rabbits, fences,and even some lowly peasants to keep you company in your humble hut. There are over 25 pieces to this thing. And everything is really small — check out the photo with the dollar to get an idea.

It’s a delightfully odd toy from a far away place and a far away time. So lower your sights and get yourself a hut today!
