No, we are mindful of that when we go shopping ;)

The cheesy microscope set that doesn't really work, but he won't let me take back.  I don't regret the electric guitar and little amp, because he's gonna learn to play, when he's ready, and they were too good a deal to pass up (used).  I got him decent headphones to use with them.  He's only ten...  I sorta regret the new furby, but he has a passel of old furbies, and I thought, well, this can go with the collection.  He doesn't really play with it, though.  I do!

 None. They got a ton of lego sets and we have fun family time with those! They're all together now though lol. We got lincoln logs with are great family time too.

The only gift that is annoying (to me and my sons too) are the furbies. They are so annoying that they put them on their bookshelf facing the wall so they sleep all the time. ha.

My dd got no annoying gifts either.

 A new Playstation because the old one broke a while ago.

Nothing but a headache!

My oDD, I kinda regret getting her a snowboard. Not because it's annoying or anything, it's just we bought it when we thought we'd be moving to BC, close to the mountains and all. We ended up deciding on ON, which has very few convenient venues for ski or snowboarding. Now it's kind of taunting her that she finally has her own board and can't even use it.

I'm starting to hear yDD's ride-on Winnie the Pooh musical thing in my sleep. She's 2 1/2 and recently adopted, I know she needs all the noise-making, talking toys she can get because they really are helping her learn English, but it's driving me nuts!

I'm not regretting it, but I just wish it was a little quieter.

Indoor ride on toys.  I did not buy them, we were very intentional about what we bought, but of course, other people buy them things too and thats where it gets out of control.   We have one heavy duty wooden ride on toy with big solid rubber wheels... the kids love it, so a family member thought it would be nice to get us two more indoor ride on's so everyone would have their own. 

It was a nice thought but the ones they got us are bulky plastic things with big hard plastic wheels and they are SOOOOOOO loud!  And light weight enough that the kids can change directions by standing with the little plastic motorcycle between their legs and hop-hop-hop to face the other way, which becomes "rattle,rattle SLAM SLAM SLAM, rattle, rattle"   

Drives me crazy!
