  • I purchased a pottery barn kitchen set for my daughter when she was 18mos old. The set costs roughly 900.00. I purchased the set because number one i liked it, it was durable, i felt that it would hold it's style for years, not like some of the other sets that become outdated in a few months. I looked at it as an heirloom piece that she could pass down to her children... She is now 5yrs old and the set looks like new. She still loves to play with it..

  • They each have a Nintendo DS. It started out with my oldest having one, and then the other two kept begging her to use it, so we got them all three brand new ones a couple of Christmases ago. By that time the oldest's was pretty beat up and part of the touch screen wasn't working, so she got one too. My youngest is only 6 but believe it or not she takes great care of hers and keeps everything together in it's case.

  • the zebra bouncing horse thing (she's 21 mos!) and it was on sale for $18.00 at a used place (reg $70). She also has a tricycle that was $45. She's not old enough to have anything expensive yet!

  • my sons carseat was like $300.... and their bouncer (shared) $200.... and daughter has a HUGE wooden bead toy like u see in a dr's office waiting room and that was around $400. I am sick a lot and in/out of the hospital and out of commission so I can't crawl around on the floor or take 'em to the park as much as they need/deserve. So I buy a lot of guilt gifts. And I sickeningly think if they have nice things they'll be more popular and have more friends (they're 3 + 4) Their video game bike thing was $100, too... they have a bunch of stuff in the very pricey range I guess. W/ the exception of the high end carseat it's all frivilous trash.

  • I think it would be his crib. I wanted a nice one without a drop rail. I am glad he got it too because it has a nice thick edge so when I am standing near his bed putting him to sleep I can rest an arm and head on the edge. It has been a life saver on those nights when I am too exhausted to stand up straight!

    Also, I got him a nice umbrella stroller from MaClaren. It's not the cheapest model but it's just one step up from the cheapest (the cheapest from MaClaren is still not cheap). I am so glad for it though because it is an absolute dream to use and I have used it so much.

    He doesn't have expensive things other than that at this point. I paid $40 for a truck he can stand up and push which helped him learn to walk at 11 months. I feel like that was a good purchase also.

  • An electronic drum set ($2,100). It was a Christmas present. Probably not one of our smartest investments, but he does love it and it is really cool.

  • My dd has a computer in her room that Grandma paid half of. She enjoys going on Club Penguin and other kid's sites, and she also has some educational games that she plays on it. We just broke down and bought her a Nintendo DS for her 9th birthday, she has wanted one for 2 years!
