Haven't read the whole thread so not sure if someone else has already posted this, but our rule is 1 you want, 1 you need, 1 to wear and 1 to read. Then something from Santa which in future years will be big shared toys like a swingset, trampoline etc. I despise the consumerism of christmas and the environmental impact of so many plastic toys which the kids will never have time to play with so this is more to limit family than us! We also severely limit electronic or plastic toys (we have a grand total of 3 such toys in the house)

I make sure I avoid “too much” for my kids. This goes out to their toys too. I do not give them the luxury to have as much toys as they want. This is my way of instilling to them that they should value their toys or whatever possession they have. But this is totally on every parent’s own prerogative. Since each parent has their own way of bringing up their kids. Only you can know which is too much for your child.
