Is a used power wheel car a tacky christmas present?

We really can't afford the three hundred dollar toy the middle child wants. I found one on Craigslist for a hundred, which I can do. Is this beyond tacky?

Like going to be a future therapy session tacky?

  • No, lol! If that's the only thing your child good go to therapy for, I'd say they're a pretty lucky kid. Honestly, I don't think that a child would care.They'll probably be too excited to ride in it to notice. Clean it up and they may not even realize it's used. :)

  • For your own child I think it's great. I wouldn't give to someone else. You know he'll love it. Go for it!

  • For your own child its not tacky. He probably won't even notice its used. Just clean it up really good and put the biggest bow you can find on it!

  • Not as long as it's in decent condition. If it looks it went through a monster truck rally or something...then don't do it. LOL

  • Heck no!!!! I think that is a problem in our country is that people think that there is someting wrong with getting things used,as long as it is in good shape, and you are not buying new, similarly expenseive things for the other children, it is a great idea. Im an ebay queen lol
