    Nah, I’ll take Red & Rover over C&H any day. Calvin’s attitude is just annoying after a while.

    Wow, angry people. My kids are teens, and when we go on road trips, they pack their own entertainment- handheld games, yes, but also books, puzzle books, comic books, etc. Why is it either/or? Enjoy all the world has to offer.
