is anyone else running into this? my mom and mil and aunts insist on buying toys that "do something". a huge majority of toys that she has, she pushed a button or flips a switch and it lights up or plays music... whatever. what is wrong with having some that just ARE. that she has to use her imagination and figure out fun ways to play with them? i asked for books, they are buying videos. and so on.
when we went christmas shopping anything i suggested, mom rejected because it didn't do anything.
she saw a kitchen set for $300 she wanted to get because it did all this stuff, she went on describing on and on..
mine was fabulous when i was little. it was made of metal with sharp edges, granted... but it was just a play stove and fridge and i had a blast! the coffee pot "magically" poured when you turned it upside down, but that was as advanced as it got.
am i the only one that would love just a set of blocks, or some books, or some musical instruments ? does every toy for our one year olds have to do everything for them?
