    Special events here, usually Christmas, Birthday and something small at Easter. Occasionally we hit the flee markets and the kids get $5 each to spend on a second hand toy, apart from that they just don't need anymore toys(we have wayyy to many)

    Toys they get st birthdays and Xmas only. Art stuff, books, (family) games they do get on random occasions.

    But we're not big on 'stuff' in this house, we spend money on family outings instead

    Probably too often. I am trying to cut back though so that they can save for their own toys. Books, art things, educational toys, etc though I will always buy. They save their money for dolls and things and I never want them missing out on books or puzzles because those things aren't priorities to them. And you can never have too many books IMO

    Whenever I see anything I think he will like! Usually small things , we go to the shopping centers a few times a week so I usually find a sticker book, matchbox car or bike plus he loves books so I buy a lot of those, bigger stuff i keep for Xmas and birthdays

    My DD is almost 11 months and so far just has one tub of toys and thats plenty! We plan only to buy a toy for each birthday andChristmas as that is how we were both brought up. I would buy books at time of the year though as I am another big fan of books. Our extended family get DD the occasional toy in between. And spoilt her last Christmas. I don't judge those that buy toys at other times but it's just not what I am used to myself. As my DD grows up and starts to get pocket money she will be able to save that up to buy any toys she might want.

    Birthdays and Christmas only for toys. Books, and crafty stuff I buy throughout the year.

    I used to buy DD a lot of toys when she was little. Mostly second hand and cheap, but she got things regularly. I'll be perfectly honest and admit she started to become a little spoilt. Now, I only buy at present time, and DS has only ever had the scrooge version of me and he is blown away every birthday/xmas.

    My finances thank me for the change too.
