Toy

ToyGiles ran a hand through his hair. "I trust you can explain this."

Andrew had taken a group of junior Slayers on a field exercise and they'd stumbled onto the opening of a portal.

A fight had ensued and the demons were vanquished, but an overenthusiastic kick had broken the ceremonial talisman. Andrew had grabbed the nearest object and intoned a spell to reseat its power.

Unfortunately, the fight had taken place in a toy store and the Amulet of Dhulin was now a Rubik's Cube. Andrew thought Giles would be more appreciative that it had almost been a Slinky.

Having your mystical symbol turned into a child's toy, does tend to put a bit of a dampener on things.

Never underestimate the power of a child's toy; look at how many boys have been fascinated by their sisters' Barbie doll.

I guess that depends on the type of fascination involved.

Barbies are detachable and easy to pierce.

Ah ... detachabe and easy to pierce. I must have had a very bland imagination as a boy, because I never considered that.
My sister's Barbie did run off with my Johnny West action figure, but they never did anything like having a three-way with GI Joe.
