I voted price cause when it comes down to it that's what I go by, but there are some things I buy that are expensive. When I'm shopping for B days and Christmas I try to buy sensible and think if they are really going to play with it. My oldest ds is at the age where there are certain things he wants. Lukily the most expensive thing he wants is $40.00 and that's not terrible. Now I am going to spend the $100.00 on a bedroom suite for his new bed but that is my choice. It's not something he really asked for but I know he'll love it!

Now with my youngest since she'll play with anything right now I buy her cheap little age appropiate toys. When she's older I may spend more.
