It is my dear friend Sems’ birthday today- HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEMS!! I have written about him before, but Sems (pronounced Shems) and I have been buddies (partners actually) since my Coach days when he was in charge of Production for our little group and I was head of Product Development. He is at home in Istanbul for a nice long vacation, but I thought I would write about his favorite item from the shop in honor of his special day. He loves the Doodle Track Cars ($13.50)- he is playing with the train above, but they also come in Sports Car & Fire Engine models too. You draw a line with the marker (included) and the car follows whatever line you draw, wherever it takes you! You can see Sems playing with his at his desk at work (marker erases for easy track “laying”) and you can see that kids of all ages will be entertained for hours by this great toy. In fact, one night I brought him a new car and we played with it at the bar where we were watching a band, and even the bartender got in to it! Funny thing though, I think Sems originally bought this for his little brother through Big Brothers/ Big Sisters- but curiously I don’t think it ever made it into Nicholas’ hands. hmmm….
p.s. Don’t Stop till you get Enough
