Other hobbies are also going up in price too. I've been doing woodworking for fun and it hasn't been very cheap at all. Originally, I was looking at some of the prices being charged on Etsy for various things and didn't want to pay the ridiculous prices being charged. When I built some of those things myself, I realized that the markup wasn't as high as I originally thought. My next project is some fancy wood risers for my Detolfs. The material costs alone are going to be more than the Detolfs themselves. Wood prices have gone insane. I wish it was even close to the markup that Hasbro is charging for their toys.
