The Exciting Surround Sounds of earlier days

Come back with me to the exciting sounds of childhood


I always get nostalgic around the holidays when I hear the TOYLAND song that talks about childhood and says: "Once you leave its borders, you can never return again. Well, I'd like to challenge that statement today! I believe you can return—I do it often as I listen to the laughter sounds of my grandchildren.

I think of my daughter Aimee's exciting childhood as I watch her 3 children at play. I think of my son Richard's colorful childhood, as I watch his new son and daughter at play. It all reminds me of my own wonderful childhood—

And so I cross back to its borders and become a child again. Try it!

I've found the way to go back! Won't you come with me?
