Why is it I can't find any really great toys for my 19-month old who will be 22-months old this xmas?
I've bought him plenty of cars. I bought him all the Yo Gabba Gabba stuffed characters except for Foofa because I couldn't bring myself to buy him a pink character with a flower for a hat or crown or hair, or whatever it's meant to be. (I know, sexist, but at least I'm going to get him the Leo doll (Little Einsteins) one way or another.) He loves music and musical instruments, so he's added some interesting things to his xmas wish list that he gave to his Grandma.
He loves certain shows, but he doesn't get what a DVD is nor would he care at all that he received one come xmas morning. Same with CDs; while he loves music, he wouldn't get what a CD is and is perfectly fine listening to the same three CDs in his very small CD collection.
It seems most of the really neat toys are for 3 years or older. And last year, it seemed most of the good toys were for 2 years or older. So something is amiss here, and it's probably me.
Am I being too picky? Am I trying to stretch my dollar too much?
His big present will be a tricycle, but one we can push until he figures out how to pedal (he may already know for all I know).
All I know is all this thinking and planning and whatnot will amount to a very excited kid on xmas morning. A very excited kid who will immediately want to play with all the paper and boxes and bows while all his new toys sit off to the side.
