OPERATION:     Granted, the buzzing noise can get a little grating, but this is not the Operation of your childhood! No longer do you need to bite on a stick while the barber pulls your tooth! The latest versions of Operation (“Silly Skills” and “Rescue Kit”) have updated body parts, new sound effects (boy, do the kids love the “gas bubbles”…), and multiple levels of play, which let even the littlest surgeons in the house take part. Be forewarned that the little pieces are still easily lost…
