TOYS: Are toymakers just not creative these days or are Gen-X parents more nostalgic than previous generations? Suddenly, the toy stores are flooded with redesigned versions of all the toys my husband and I grew up with. Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and He-Man are all back. It is sort of strange to think of a new generation of kids getting into them and I wonder whether they will be as popular the second time around. Judging by my niece and nephew, who are hipper and more indulged than my kids, the toys are selling though. So when will Smurfs, Cabbage Patch Kids and My Little Ponies be hitting the shelves?
