  1. Could you guys please add a “Wish List” feature?
    My children and I absolutely LOVE Lakeside Collections, so I would love to be able to create a “wish list” for my parents.

    I only have a single wish list – on Amazon. HOWEVER, it would be SO EXCITING to see my mom loving Lakeside too!!! ? I just KNOW she’d love it when I show her the Fall 2015 catalogue and everything that we’ve already purchased from Lakeside – still have a lot more purchasing to be make!!! lol.

    However, we purchased 2 identical , portable gaming systems last Christmas. As soon as they took them out of their boxes, they BOTH DIDN’T WORK!!! We would really LIKE to return/exchange them, for store credit (or whatever way you guys do this). Our kids were SO excited when they first opened them on Chrustmas morning until – nothing 😕 . Just a “shell” and a big tease that put one of our children in tears. If I remember correctly, I was holding back tears of frustration! – I mean, they WERE about $30.00+ each (about $60+ for both!!
    How do we go about resolving this issue? We still have their original boxes as well.

    Thank You!
