  • I probably buy a couple new toys a month, nothing big though. I will usually rotate toys (take something that she doesn't play with anymore to the thrift store, and in return buy her a new toy)

  • I don't keep count, it's not a lot though,... I've found he doesn't really play with the toys I buy him, Instead he plays with everything else but the toy I just bought him, He loves playing outside, So pretty much the world is his toy.

  • Birthday, Christmas, Easter. Between these occasions combined he gets enough from me & family. On occasion I will get him something if he really wants it & it's inexpensive, but he deserves it b/c he is very well behaved. Still the toys/books/etc are overflowing. He never wants to get rid of anything. I have to go thru them when he is at daycare about once a year & clear out what he NEVER plays with, then I take in to good will. I would say my child is exact opposite of yours. Sometimes I wish he would get tired of something.

  • he gets a small toy once a month or so. I rotate his toys though, I keep a box of toys in the closet and trade them out once a month so he always has "new" things to play with.

  • My dd is only almost 10 months, I buy her something at least twice a month. Most of it she can't even play with yet. I see like this . . . if we are in financial trouble later . . I will already have gifts stored away for her. I have them up in the closet. Dh always asks me if they are for me or dd . . . lol.

  • just holidays mostly. every so often I pack half of them into a box and put them away in his closet and take out the toys I put in there a previous month.
