Hey guys, here is my contribution for the Playtime show. It's great to be part of a show that is promoting such a good cause.

this was part of a real good moment during the opening. Correct me if I'm wrong James, but I believe your name was James the 5th. James is one of 8 siblings in a small row home and was actually a "tot" that received "toys" when he was young from the program. Now, grown up and working, he makes it a specific effort to generously fill toy for tots donation boxes each December. He is a fan of the blog and knew about the Playtime show. When he made it to the show, this piece stopped him. He apparently just had a glimpse into his childhood. "Same haircut, same TMNT sprawl on the carpet floor, same Dad reading the paper in the background." He bought it without question.

I'm glad Lori stopped him and said hello after seeing multiple toys go into the donation box. The entire 360 moment was quite touching and made my night. That's what the show is all about.

Mat, thanks so much for sharing that with me, it really made my day.

And cheers to you for putting on a great show! Sorry I couldn't be there, but I'm glad to hear it was a success.
