Being a kid is hard. I’m not being facetious—it really is. Or at least, it was for me. I always felt like I was on the outside looking in (that’s right, I lived the fricking Staind song).
So you can imagine my relief when I found something that would ensure no child would ever be left out. A universal token of acceptance, as it were. A magical key.
That’s right, folks. Forget Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bakugan, and even baseball cards—those times are past.

Even better? Each card is only 99¢ and it comes with a 6-pack of sugary goodness!

Strangely, it’s just fine with Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. I think it might be getting kickbacks.
