Jim conceded that he wants to give toys on the grounds that he didn’t get that many growing up. “My father worked yet didn’t rake in tons of cash. It’s difficult to have a major Christmas with five children. I love it when individuals ask me what amount do I get paid for making these toys. I disclose to them my compensation is the point at which I see the grin on children’s countenances. I want to have the option to do this until my toes twist up.”
