    Do you buy your kids the latest and greatest toys or...

    ...ones that remind you of the toys you had as a kid? I was thinking about buying a Cabbage Patch doll for my daughter. smile

    I don't believe in buying the latest and greatest just because it is the "hot" toy to buy. I buy very practical toys, usual educational and entertaining at the same time.

    My son loves my Cabbage Patch baby that my parents bought me when I was 2. He also loves old matchbox cars. He doesn't care if they are new or the latest and greatest, he just loves to play with them.

    I do sometimes but only to reward them for their good behaviour or good results in school,birthdays or other special occasions etc.

    But generally it is the simple not so expensive ones to keep them occupied when they have some free time, it gives them something to look forward to.

    My parents never bought me the latest and greatest toys. In fact, I was extremely deprived of toy-interaction as a child. I'm not bitter because of it, but I know that when it comes to Christmas after my son is born I will definitely be buying him some of the newer toys on the market. I want him to make his own memories and be able to tell his kids that he got the hot toy at Christmas that everyone else wanted.

    My children are grown, but I never fell into the "hot" toy fads. They both had Cabbage Patch Kids, but only because their grandmother bought them. Now my grandsons will get any toy they might want from Grammy smile
    Really, though, I will get them toys they can learn from, some toys just to have fun with and some toys they ask for...(one grandson loves dinosaurs and action figures, the other likes motorcycles...)

    I buy cheap toys as my boys are at age of destruction. They still do not understand the value of money ar toys, so they do not get the newest toys. Thank's God some of these chinese-made toys are so cheap, so we can buy them by 2 in case one gets broken too quickly smile
