Toys are magical things: they remind us of how happy our childhood was, and
how much it is troublesome to be an adult. This page is devoted to
reminding you of those better years, and to give me a chance to talk about my
childhood - yeah, I hope I make all of you jealous.

In this little shop, I found a black, pretty octopus hanging above the door.
Some people think octopuses are ugly, but I don't agree - and the owner Liu
certainly wouldn't eir!
"Our shop sells only the 1/6-scale model soldier figurines. These soldiers
are one of the most popular hobbies from abroad. I have a lot of sources for my
products. Some of these figurines have less than 10 copies aailable worldwide!"
Liu says, proudly.Eavesdropping on Liu and one of her customers, I hear her say,
"I guess it costs 6,000 yuan, or more. If you really love this one, I¡¯ll try to
get it as soon as I can." Yes, herttle figures cost at least 300 yuan each. For
some of the more limited productions, even 1,000 yuan is on the low side.
"I know they are very expensive, but some of the customers are in here buying
frequently. Iguess this an expensive hobby ¨C it's just for those people with
money to burn,¡± she jokeAs I stared at those little figures, I knew there¡¯s no
way I would ever spend so much money for something so small. But apparenly,
there are a lot of people more willing to part with their paychecks than I am.
Yes, there are people who chase after their dreams forever, even after they
"grow up.At least someone has the money to burn.
