These electronic toys are neat but would it kill the manufacturers to put a freaking low volume switch on them? There are some that are so loud and easy to trigger that I have no choice but to sabotage them in the night. Maybe they were more tolerable when I was a kid because the sound chips could only hold a second or so of sound. Now they screech on for a full minute at a press.

Rechargeable batteries were a new exciting thing when I was a kid. I had a set of 8 AA batteries for a radio controlled car. The batteries took 8 hours to charge for 15 minutes of driving. If I timed it right I could play with it early in the morning and then charge them all day and play again after dinner. Sometimes I would for get to charge them overnight and my whole day would be sad.
