Kids are all about gifts. And if you think your kids aren’t, you are either residing on a Kibbutz in Israel, living off the land and joining in community building exercises every day in lieu of playing with toys or you are delusional and your kids are as into presents as much as mine. But has your kid ever been given a gift that made you cringe? Or a gift that you didn’t even know was going to be terrible until it stained your couch? Yeah, I’ve gotten a few of those too. The last one was my oldest’s birthday where she was given a “voice changing” megaphone. Oh the joy this toy has brought us! I wanted to send a rotten tomato in place of a thank you card. But when I thought about it, I realized this is far from the worst toy we’ve come in contact with. In order to save you some time, money and friendships, I’ve made a little guide for What Not To Get This Year. You’re welcome.
