Yes indeed, although now I buy certain toys for my grandsons. Keep in mind, toys are early learning tools and can also act as a catalyst for child development. That is why Kindergarten should always be play-center oriented (i. e. toy-play)...
That's funny you asked that question because I currently don't have any kids but my fiancé is working on that. But to further answer your question when I do have children we may or may not get any toys for free. I would rather buy the toys myself so they will know it's from their mother.
I do not have young ones, most my Neices and Nephews are grown now. I only buy for my Immediate family. My son is 32. Yikes...I am telling my age. But yes have always bought toys for my son as a child. But now as they get older they are more expensive. He works with his hands, Does remodels so his toys are his tools...LOL!
So is this common to the Asian community? You were not given gifts as a child? Nothing for birthday's or Christmas? Jesus was given gifts...There is a scripture in Luke about us giving good gifts to your children, it must be common to many cultures.
Do you think fast food restaurants should also sell liquor?Taco bell will test selling booze in selected stores. Will you be more attracted to these establishments and buy their food if liquor is offered?
