When we travel, one of Emma’s favorite things to do is to browse the SkyMall catalog. It’s full of ridiculous things you don’t really need, and a few you think “that’s actually not a bad idea” but would never actually buy. Lots of pet-related stuff, and tons and tons of things you would imagine a sad executive who is never home would get for his children. Slate recently ran an article featuring some highlights and lowlights.
