I didn't like this story as much; I feel like it's aimed at one group and distances the other. A perfect gift for dads that act like kids to make them feel like they're appreciated and special but it might make sensible and low key dads (or moms)feel like they're not doing enough.

Not every grown up enjoys kids games and to say that the ones that do; that "their kids are lucky!" implies, to me, that the other kids are missing out and their parents are less awesome.
