    Default How many toys are too many toys?

    DD has got 1 large gift
    Pool with gazebo

    Then from Santa
    Doggy doo doo
    Walkie talkies

    From us
    Minni mouse gardening set
    Make your own teddy bear
    Baby alive with clothes
    Tiger golf game
    Nail polish with stickers and diamonds
    A sylvanian family, camper van and ice cream stand.
    I've been trying to get her the sylvanian families hospital too but its sold out everywhere.

    Her stocking
    New electric tooth brush
    Book
    DVDs
    Bath bombs
    Stickers
    Hair things


    I think that's everything.

    We buy $100 worth of 14+ year old things for the wishing tree. We always buy for the older ones because they always seem to get forgotten.

    We go with a certain dollar amount per child. Usually its $200 per child but this year we are going away on an overseas trip in Feb so we are doing a smaller christmas. I spent $100 on each child and bought during the toy sales. Santa is also bringing an ipad for the family to share Our kids only get presents from santa, none from 'us' but also get ALOT from the rest of our family, being the only little kids on both sides.

    What happens when they learn the truth about Santa?

    I told my 3.5 DS that Santa brings one present and the rest are from family. That way, whenever he finds out the 'truth', he won't be terrified that he won't be getting gifts anymore because he found out about Santa

    Yep same here. I'm not letting 'Santa' get all the credit for the awesome gifts, I want them to know their mumma bear has provided it for them :-)

    Default How many toys are too many toys?

    My son was only born in October so not really an issue this year, but my husband and I have decided to limit gifts in general, partly because we have a relatively small, very full house, and partly because I am a teacher and have been horrified by the level of entitlement/materialism I have seen in many kids.

    I saw a neat little poem, 'something you want, something you need, something to wear and something to read' which we will be following for Christmas and birthdays. I was horribly spoiled as a child, and it took me a long time to get over that as an adult. My only challenge will be getting DS' grandparents to respect our wishes!
