We're sort of bummed about not being able to find a sled thing anywhere. There are NO regular toy stores downtown anymore ... The Girls and I were thinking of taking a side-trip on the way home to go to the Toys R Us that's over on Western (it would have invovled taking a bus a couple of miles one way, then taking another back to the El ... probably burning up a few hours in the process) ... but once we got over to the El we just headed home. When we got back down here we also checked Osco, Walgreens, and Ace Hardware on the way in from the subway stop, but none of them had anything like that in. We may have to go all the way south of the Loop tomorrow ... we can take the Red Line down to Roosevelt and go to the new Target that's over there, then go over to the Museum Campus and find some hills for The Girls to go down.
When did hardware stores stop selling sleds?
