How old is too old for toys?

A friend and I were just discussing how we both get our adult and teen children a toy at Christmas time (this year, my 25 year old is getting a remote controlled zombie).  My friend got her son a replacement of a favorite childhood toy that he no longer has

My ex's family always gave the adult kids toys in their stockings, at least until they married and had kids of their own.  

How old do you think is too old to give toys for Christmas?

My oldest stopped getting toys at like 15 because he was "too cool" lol
I think it's great that you guys still get them toys. They sound fun.

Never that's one of the reasons men want son's you get to buy remote control cars trains etc...

We all still have a little bit of kid left in us.

I love doing it and seeing them act like goofy kids for a little while.  

One year someone gave a cousin a container of Flarp in their stocking.  I swear the person who had the most fun with that stuff was my ex's 80 year old grandmother!  She thought it was hilarious!

I think i stopped getting toys when i was aboit 13. My mom bought me a stuffed tiger when i was like 14 or 15 but i collect them. Plus i was never really into anything. So it just depends on the kid.

I think it would depend on the kid. Also on what you're counting as a toy. Do video games or gaming consoles count as toys?

NEVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR  ,   If a person wants a toy by golly, give it to them when you can.
