In our house, Friday nights are Burrito night. My oldest son has his dance class and, afterward, he and I go pick up burritos in the mission. Naturally, after dancing enthusiastically for an hour, he’s worked up a powerful thirst. Sometimes, therefore, I’ll get an agua fresca — a Mexican fruit drink — for him while our food is being made. Last night, however, he got a lesson instead.

When I was growing up, toy guns were strictly forbidden in our house and we were not even supposed to play with them elsewhere. While I didn’t like that policy as a kid, now that I am a parent myself, I have the same rule in place for my children. I don’t think guns are an appropriate toy for kids to play with and I don’t think I’m alone. So what sort of donated toys do you suppose the Salvation Army destroys rather than see end up in the hands of children?
