It’s quiet…my mother and I are both busy writing reviews and discussing our year-end Platinum List of top award winners. No interns today or toy testers…just the hum of the a/c on what has turned out to be another hot day in the city. When we started, we used to have only 20 toys on the list and some huge disputes about those 20 spots. The years have passed, we’ve both mellowed…the list is now usually closer to 45 (with ties). Family harmony trumps having a shorter list. I feel really fortunate to have such a great partner.
