Can it Really Be Considered a Prize if You’re Earning It?

Ah, to be young – so much stuff you want, but so few options for getting the money for that stuff. Well, Olympic Sales Club is here to help! Just look at all the fabulous prizes you could earn by selling cards and gifts!

So pretty much everything on here is stuff that would appeal to kids/teenagers… except possibly the crock-pot. I mean, really, what kid would choose a crock-pot over toys or video games??

And just for the record, I had a Coleco Telstar as a kid (and still have it, in fact!) – I think getting it for a few bucks at a rummage sale is a much better deal than having to sell 19 boxes of greeting cards!

What can make even the most mundane objects fun? Cartoon characters!! That’s why Snippys are so much more than mere office/school supplies! Yes, these “FABULOUS CARTOON SCISSORS” make it fun to cut stuff up!

I love that they’re encouraging you to collect these… ’cause if there’s one thing that kids love to collect, it’s… umm… office supplies…?
