This slideshow makes me laugh, because we've had our fair share of annoying toys in the house:

Ha! I was just complaining in another thread that Eliza's grandparents only got her light-up, annoying sound-making toys for Christmas, and lo and behold, they got her the first one on this list! Too funny :)

not a single one! although i doubt i'll escape play-doh and matchbox cars, and he does have several noise-making light up toys. right now the vtech nursery rhyme storybook and the see-n-say are at the top of my OMG SHUT UP list, lol.

Ha! We have the first one in the slideshow too! My mom bought it for Selin for Christmas. I actually take the batteries out of some of her toys so that she doesn't get overwhelmed with the obnoxious music (and to save my sanity too!) DHs brother and his wife bought Selin for Christmas this Elmo cell phone. Ugh, I cringed when I helped her unwrap it. Their DD started playing with the gift we got her (Go Fish game - at least it's educational!) so I felt like I had to open it and let her play with the stupid phone so they wouldn't get offended (and believe me, they would).

We've escaped most plastic noise-makers so far, but I'm sure they'll make their way into the house. I really like the fact that DH's aunt asks us what toys we want. I just keep asking for books!

Christine--we did get a musical cell phone. MIL held it in front of his face and kept pressing buttons while DH and I opened the rest of DS's gifts. And it was close to bedtime. I'm still ticked about it.
