5 toys Republican candidates can play with that are cooler than an Etch-a-Sketch

There's something really strange going on between Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (aka the front-runner no on really likes) and the classic toy Etch-a-Sketch

After one of his advisers remarked that the fall campaign is "almost like an Etch-a-Sketch" because "you can kind of shake it up and restart," it seems that the GOP's candidates have started playing games. As in Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have literally been spotted with the classic toy, making sly reference to the fact that Romney is viewed as a flip-flopper--or someone who can just shake it up and totally morph into something (or someone) different.

Well, listen up GOP! There are some better games you can be playing! Here are our picks:

1. Magic 8 Ball: Perhaps this classic toy can help them make better decisions about all of the topics that matter to Latinos and women. 

2. Maya y Miguel: What the Republican Presidential candidates really need is to learn some Spanish, since Latinos are the fastest growing population in the U.S. It should be easy enough with this bilingual spelling game

3. Settlers of Catan: This board game about an island where players build settlements and get resources can teach the candidates about how to keep peace with other nations and trade fairly to keep our planet healthy.

4. Would You Rather: A game about choosing which bad thing you'd be more OK with can help teach people like Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum about the long-term consequences of the policies they support.

5. Yo Gabba Gabba: This fun program for kids can teach the Presidential candidates about being nice. There are songs about not biting friends, sharing and being polite--lessons they all need to learn.
