  • Well, my child isn't a tween, he's a baby. But...I regret buying almost all of them. Why? Because he ignores them. He is the perfect definition of a child who forgets the toy and plays with the box, lol. I bought him 3 toy cell phones. Does he want those? Nope, he wants mine. I buy him toy keys. He acts like he doesn't see them, but is constantly in my purse, looking for mine, lol.

  • I do not buy toys. Each of my girls has a doll that I made. When I can, I buy books or art supply. This summer, I bought jump ropes and throwing discs. Those were the first toys I have bought.
