JOPLIN, MO.--- A new display at the Joplin library will make you feel like a kid again. Teresa Babcock has set up a display of small cartoon characters. She collected them for her two boys back in the 1980's. She found them in Happy Meals and cereal boxes. 

Her boys are now in their 30's and she recently discovered the toys as she was doing some spring cleaning in her garage. She works at the Joplin Public Library and thought it would be a cool display. She found that setting it up was a stress reliever. 

"You're never too old, you don't get old playing, you grow old because you quit playing. The economy didn't matter, the news didn't matter. All that mattered where was I going to put Casper," said Teresa Babcock, Collector. 

You're also challenged to find Waldo in the display case. You have until the end of the month to find him and check out the display.
