There comes a point in life and maturity when you make choices not based on the frivolous things but on the things that really matter.The older you get, the better you can see which is which.At least that is the way it is supposed to work.The world gives us toys, things that look exciting but are not the main point. The less mature you are, the more you get things for the toy appeal, and the less you get them for the higher purpose."The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys."

Something that provides substance or texture. 2. Essential character or structure. 3. Basic strength or toughness; fortitude.Three dictionary definitions of toy are:1.
