Everyone thinks I'm a toy nazi anyway
Not to nitpick but I have an issue with your terminology. You may feel strongly about what toys your children play with but the use the term nazi just mainstreams the term and takes away from the true horror.

That said I do not think any electronic toy can replace being read too. Nor can it replace one on one teaching of any skill (math, etc) However is it terrible- no but I do find them annoying.

Soon there will be no more victims still alive but the memories for their families everywhere will remain. It is hurtful to trivialize.

Or maybe you are one who feels it never really happened, that it was just a hoax?? But that is a conversation for another thread…..
