When I was growing up, a pair of binoculars was equivalent to two toilet paper tubes. It was free, and I could make one almost every week! And if those were out, well, I'd cut a paper towel roll in half! Genius!
But now, kids have it easy. With the internets, all they have to do is click to get a free REI seven function kids binoculars. Man, if only there were internets when I was younger… I wouldn't have had to unroll so much toilet paper!
