Kate Gosselin's Birthday Gift for Sextuplets Puts Other Moms to Shame

Kate Gosselin and sextuplets

OMG. She must have wanted to ensure that her children view her as "Mother of the Year" from here on out -- because Kate Gosselin's birthday gift for her sextuplets is seriously as amazing as it gets.

Most of us have scratched our heads over how in the heck she manages to keep up with all those kids during a regular day -- but birthdays are a whole other story! I mean ... what can you possibly buy for sextuplets that will delight all of them without having to go out and purchase six separate gifts?!?

Well, if you're Kate, you buy 'em a John Deere Gator. Yes, a legit John Deere Gator ... not a toy one.

Check it out.

Do those kids look like they're having the time of their life or what?!?

Considering the price of a Gator on the John Deere website starts at $5,800 (STARTS!), this is not the gift just any mom is going to shell out for. But it will certainly come in handy as far as getting around on that big piece of property they live on. Plus, it's something they can all enjoy together, which is pretty cool. When you're a mom of multiples, group gifts are a lifesaver!

Some people are questioning Kate's gift, but the older kids get, the harder they are to buy for. The expense of their "asks" goes up, and they're no longer content just playing with the box. And if you think you have it hard birthday shopping for one tween, try buying for six of them at once!

Would you ever buy something like this for your kids?

Kate Gosselin will probably catch flack for WHATEVER present she buys for her kids, eternally. She is a person who pretty much can't win no matter what she does. While I'm not necessarily a big Kate fan, I do think this was a pretty cool present (I know, I know... as long as they're supervised while using it and a million things could happen, blah, blah, blah...). It is practical too considering they do have a large piece of property to roam around on. The kids look really happy and care-free in this pic, which is nice to see.

I'm sure TLC paid for the presents. Kate is way to cheap

Really! Mothers that don't buy something expensive or a mode of transportation should feel shame. What is wrong with you?

I think that is a great gift!  Wonderful idea!

Cool gift. I'm totally ashamed of myself for not buying it for my kids (not).

This is an extravagant gift for children and totally inappropriate. It's like me buying buying a vacuum for my husband. You kow it's really for me. Not to mention the cost. These kids would have enjoyed being able to pick out an appropriate gift for themselves. Kate just likes the credit of a huge gift but forgets how often she cries financially chalenged.

Kate wouldn't get criticized for what she does if it wasn't all about her. Give the kids each a hundrend bucks each to do with what they want. She could have saved 9500 bucks and the kids would have been on cloud 9.

If I had the money and the type of property that could use that thing, I'd buy it.  My husband's family has a ranch and they have a handful of various things like that.  Sometimes they are used working the ranch, sometimes for fun, and by kids younger than the Gosselin's.

I disagree with the title of this article, which states Gosselin's gift puts other moms to shame. Even if I had $5,800 laying around, I wouldn't buy my child such a dangerous gift. I'd rather take the money and put it in an education fund for the future. As long as Gosselin continues to get publicity, she's going to keep doing stuff like this.

IF she spends that kind of money on the gator why did she say she can't afford gymnastics. Why not enroll them in a nice camp in the summer as their gift. The Gator was no different than the $4000 slide for their pool that TLC gave her at a previous birthday.

I say John Deere gave it to her for advertising.
