Personally I really enjoy buying my kids a toy that will amaze them and entertain them. We do usually only leave that to birthdays and christmas though.
I can see how a simple toy free life would be good for anyone
Interesting. I am sick of toys. DD just had a birthday and I asked for books and crafts. I asked everyone not to buy toys for Xmas. I still think toys have a place. My daughter is very creative with her dolls and stuffed animals and my son with his cars.
Quoting bloomsr:This is pretty awesome. We are constantly purging toys from our house and my kids don't usually beg for new things- as a reward for behaving in a store we walk through the toy aisles but we don't ever buy anything and my kids are ok with that.
I am dreading the bombarding of gifts at Christmas. I try to be very explicit about not needing or wanting any toy gifts for our 3 kids but it falls on deaf ears:/
Quoting comptonkids:I needed this today :)
we just found out the bonus we are getting is no where near what we were expecting
I go overboard on Christmas and it's time to scale down
my kids are 2,5&6 with one on the way
