A tough lesson for my kids at the street carnival: Carnivals are rigged. No, seriously. There is a reason you only see one person walking around with a giant stuffed panda bear. The games are impossible to win. I could have bought a non-flammable stuffed animal at Target for the price Daddy just paid trying knock the milk bottles over with a baseball. John Stossel did a hidden camera show on that once…the milk bottles are weighted and the baseball is not a regular baseball, it’s lighter. But, when you have kids, that’s what you do. You try to win them a giant stuffed panda bear.
