Every since my daughter turned 2 I've been having regrets about many of her toys. I thought we could start a list for new and expectant moms.

Questions to ask yourself before buying that toy!

(Obviously there are safety concerns but I mean questions like is this toy going to make my life miserable lol)

I'll start

-Does it make a lot of noise?

-does it involve pieces that you will need to assemble time and time again.

-does it involve more than five pieces in general lol

-will you be asked to operate/assist in operating this toy 100 times a day? (For example my daughter has a bubble lion that blows bubbles when you squeeze the handle but she isn't strong enough to squeeze the handle so therefore I have to do it over and over and over and over...)

-is there ANYWAY this toy could possibly make a huge mess?

- will it cripple you if stepped on in the dark?

-could it possible start randomly singing or talking in the middle of the night?


Ok go...

DS loved this toy, but it wasn't durable.

We bought the barbie phone years ago and you program it to call at certain times and all kinds of other stuff...that thing went back the next morning at the request of my dd! That thing called her every 2 hours all night long and would not shut up!!!
