Sea-Monkeys cost $13.95 now. Can you believe this???
I remember filling out the form, folding it around a dollar bill and a quarter, and waiting three months to get my Sea-Monkeys. I was ten years old. Now they're $13.95?
I wonder what happened in our economy, in the supply-and-demand of Sea-Monkeys that would cause this undecapling in price? (an eleven-fold increase)
Is $13.95 equally as accessible to today's ten year-old as a dollar-twenty-five was to me in 1969?
Well, that was forty years ago, after all. But still. . . .
The mama Sea-Monkey still looks like Helen Crump from The Andy Griffith Show and the daddy Sea-Monkey still has his tail strategically placed. Some things never change.
What a total rip-off.
