A friend of mine came over and she made a few comments about the lack of toys I have for DS (DS is 1yo).
We usually only buy toys for DS when we feel like he's reached a some kind of milestone and is able to appreciate a specific toy. For example, lately I've noticed him trying to stack things, so we bought him some building blocks. A $12 set of 50 wooden blocks.
Other than that, we might only buy a new toy every 2-3 months, and it's usually something with a purpose (e.g. a smart trike so we can go for fun walks together).
I also regularly get rid of toys he's outgrown.
How often do your kids get new toys?
