This Walmart sponsored question is right on point. What toy have you bought your kids in the last year that was worth the money?
Hello?! You mean as in really worth it? Well, the McDonald's Happy Meal Madagascar 2 toy (that I bought minus the Happy Meal) that my boys have fought over every day since it came home, was genuinely worth it. I think it was $1.72 or so.
Otherwise, toys are radically overpriced in my opinion. Do I splurge? Far too often.
Which, of course, makes "worth" a term completely relative and solely
about the momentary utter joy my kids bask in--until they realize
they're over it. Sigh.
What toy is really "worth it" in your house?
