    I would definitely not be welcoming it in to my home...it probably seems a bit harsh for your parents, but my mum seems to think that when we were little she never said to no us and she just had a house full of toys. Now, I certainly remember having lots of things to play with, and I also remember being told 'no that's too big for our house, you can't have that' etc....my mum has erased this from her memory of course As a result my mum thinks that we should be accepting of absolutely everything that she wants to buy our children and I often have to be quite firm with her, even though she gets quite annoyed with me by it.

    Agree @Party of Three

    I think she can put this down as a learning experience!

    She truly means well, but I have stood my ground on this one.

    It never would have occured to me to be annoyed at my mum over this?!?! But then my mum lives in a different State. Ask me this time next year when I've moved 30 mins drive from her

    I just spoke to her and she's decided to gift it to a friend of hers for her grandson who is slightly younger than my DS.

    Hope her friend is up for a DIY project

    Good outcome for you, perhaps not for the friend of hers though. I'd be thinking "what a totally random present".

    As for the PVC pipe, I'm sure Bunnings could help out with drilling the holes etc, but geez, what a pain organising it all!
