  • Less than 50 dollars on toys. For hte most part they're still more into the boxes than anything else. My girls got/get a lot of clothes and things they need for the holidays from me and my so and more of the things they want from our families...

  • I don't have a toddler . i have a new born but if i diid have one any where between 100-200. The reson is 9/10 they won't play with the toys long and plus they will out grow them quick..n also i would buy them educational toys because that's something that yall can do together so maybe they won't grow out of it as fast .

  • Last year I think we spend about $150 for each kid. This year it may be a little less. We also have a kid's birthday on the 23rd and the other's is in January. So this is a very expensive time of year for us.

  • my 15 month old has about $60 worth of toys. My 2 1/2 year old has about $120 worth. This is only because I wanted them to have the same # of toys as they don't know how much things cost. One of his gifts is the Vmotion game system so that's why so much. But I look at that one as an investment as it's a learning game system and they will both be able to use it.

  • Not much @ all. Just a couple of toys, maybe $30 dollars. Lets be honest they don't know the diff. anyhow. I would probably start spending more once they can ask for stuff for x-mas, I would say around 4 or 5 yrs.

  • I spend about 75.00 on my two year old. This is a mixture of toys,clothes and books. The best thing is two shop around online and ebay for new things.
