Toys, Nostalgia and the Difference Between Men and Women

On WABC Saturday Night Oldies

Host Mark Simone read my theory Toys, Nostalgia and the Difference Between Men and Women over the air, needless to say, it sparked some interesting comments.

If no player, listen here  or go to original post

"I have a theory. Don't get mad, but it goes something like this:

Men are romantics. Women are realists. Men generally live in the past. Women live in the future. Men love their old toys. Women rarely seem to share this passion ("Why do you want that old thing around the house?")

Old toy shows and old toy trading and collecting businesses are usually run and attended by men (happy men!) 90% or more. Nostalgia is primarily a male emotion.

Men are the romantics, dreamers. Women are the realists, planners. Neither can live without the other, both need the other.

There are exceptions, but I think many can agree with this. Especially those who are married. ;) "

However, when it comes to tossing out the kids old toys/games, it's the wife who may be the one to say, "no let's keep it. For the future grandchildren."

Could be. But I've never heard of that case before.
