Pete's Favorite eBay Experience

"My favorite eBay experience has been searching for hard-to-find Lego figures for my kids.  While not the biggest gift for their birthdays, they were always the best and most appreciated. It was so gratifying to see their excitement and joy for these toys that could only be found on eBay."
