Toys of Doom – 12 Toys All Parents Dread!

By Danielle |

Buy these… at your own risk!

With a toddler birthday party coming up in May, I am on the edge of my seat wondering what kind of annoying-as-hell toy I am going to be forced to hide this year.

In years past we have had one of those ball popper lawn mowers, a portable ball pit ,and of course the dreaded Play-doh.

Of course all of these toys are fun, but only in moderation. And by moderation I mean 5 minutes every…say… three months.

Don’t even try and say you don’t have any toys that drive you up a wall, because we all know there are certain toys our kids just love only they know we hate them that much.

I started asking the readers which toys they hate the most and which have left the most horrid memories fresh in their mind. I’ve compiled a list for your reading misery pleasure!

Be sure to chime in with your most dreaded toys and maybe you could be featured in the next post!  If you have a blog, please include the link.

    Amen to the Play-doh!

    I have no problem with Elmo, actually. It’s astonishingly easy to buy Elmo dolls and merchandise that make no noise at all.

    Haven’t used Moon Dough…how is it worse than PlayDoh? Crumblier?

  4. Annie says:

    YES!!!!! Moon dough is terrible, my 2 oldest got it for christmas one year, several years ago, it was the same thing at my house, they used it once, and I threw it away!!!
    And the popper toys, my father in law got those for my older 2 also, for christmas one year, and he lived with us, so if they started playing with it, I would send them to papa’s room, those stupid things were gone after I did that a few times!!!! :)

    Anything with a bazillion pieces, like the Melissa & Doug Bead kits. It actually says on the outside of the box: 200+ pieces, which is really more like a warning label for the parents.

    I almost forgot to tell you all that when our son was a toddler, I enrolled him in a Music Class for toddlers. It was fun because all of us would sit down on the floor, in a round circle, and during the class the little children learned to clapp out the rythym of their name. Now that may not sound like fun, but it gave the children the ability to sound out the syllables of their names and also of their friends. One little girl, a close friend of our son, was named Christa Elizabeth. Believe me, she had a fun name to class out. clap-clap clap-ah-clap. Her last name, which shall remain anonymous, was even more fun. It was clap – clap – clap. Our son’s name was claaap, clap-clap. Not quite as much fun, but listening to the others, was helpful to him.
