    *sigh* stuffed animals…. people say they’re fake, but somehow they ARE able to multiply themselves in a very, very rapid pace…. I just don’t get it ;)

    Greetings from the netherlands!

    Okay, I’m intrigued…do you have something against toy musical instruments and baby dolls themselves, or are they just possibilities you’ve added to the list?

    For me, I can’t think of a single toy I’d rather my girls play with than their baby dolls. I love to watch them pretend and nurture and practice being mommies! And we love our musical instruments too.

    @mandi – i’ve got nothing against toy musical instruments or baby dolls. i am against the number of them that are sitting in my basement. i offered them as possibilities knowing that if my house is anywhere near typical, there is room for minimalization.

    that, and you’ve got to admit, some toy musical instruments can be a bit annoying. :)

    I can’t stand kids’ meal toys. I have started giving my son money for his piggy bank in exchange for not ordering a kids’ meal with a toy. And I always threaten retribution for anyone who buys my kids noisy toys :)
