Blasts from the past

The hottest new toys at an industry trade show last week included some golden oldies like Play Doh.

"A 5-year-old doesn't know or care that a toy has actually been around for decades," a Hasbro executive explained.

At last, an opportunity to re-gift the Evel Knievel action figure that's been up in the attic since Christmas 1973.

The company will repair the cars at no cost, which is a good thing since Bimmer owners' wallets will be empty after handing over $250 for a routine oil change.
