So I'm currently writing an article about baby products that I regret buying for the 12 - 24 month age gap but Im having trouble getting past three things! I'm having a brain fart I guess.....

What are some things that you feel like you bought for your toddler that you regret or was just a waste of money?!

a fancy stroller, expensive learning toys.


we would have saved money on a simple umbrella stroller with a hood, not to mention dealing with this bulky ass stroller now that she's outgrown it, and she never played with that Baby Einstein type shit.

A bike ...... what's the point of tiny little bikes when they can't even pedal.

Toddler bed. Tiny potty. Toys that said 24+ months but were boring by 14 months.

Bump for curiousity. DD turns 1 next month and I don't know what to get her.

So far, she hasn't liked her expensive Baby Einsteins jumpy seat. She preferred her $4 walker we got from a garage sale. Figures.

Most if the "educational" toys with alphabet, numbers, animals, lights, etc. sucked. Blocks, balls, and cars are way better and he actually plays with them every day instead of just the five minutes after we take them out of the box.

Training potty
Educational toys ( rarely ever played with them)

My advice is to get the simplest, most old school toys you can find. Dolls, cars, blocks, push toys, that kind of thing. Its said that those teach kids to use their imaginations more and are better for them. I just know that's what my son actually has ended up enjoying. :)

I think the Gerber toddler meals/snacks are crazy overpriced for some overcooked wheat pasta and mushy vegetables.

Excellent, thank you! Makes sense, considering my daughter's favorite "toys" tend to be the box the actual toy came in or cups and spoons, or my phone.
