Toys my kids are never going to have…

Filed under: Kids,Parenting — hindumommy @ 12:28 am

CNN-Money has a list of the top 10 most expensive toys which are the rage among the obscenely wealthy.

The gifts range from a giant playset called the TumblePost for $97,510 to the relatively cheap Home Pro Racing Video Game Simulation System for just $4000. Other toys that made it to the list include a Piggbank for $6,000 and a Robot for $50,000

Now I know that the parents can easily afford these gifts, but don’t they feel a slight twinge of wasting money when the kids discard these toys after just a couple of days of playing? Or would it be worse if the kids actually played with these toys and broke them?

Here’s the list :

  1. Grand Victorian Mansion
  2. Scallywag Sloop Pirate Themed Club House
  3. The Genuine 7-foot Robby Robot
  4. Home Pro Racing Video Game Simulation System
  5. Zoltar (Fortune Teller) 
  6. Lego Life-Sized Batman
  7. Junior Off Roader Gasoline-Powered Vehicle for Two
  8. Massive Wilbur Piggybank
  9. Fantasy Coach
  10. Tumble Outpost

  2. Chris: – Christmas is an adopted holiday for us. it’s kinda hard not to join in the festive spirit that pervades all around and it’s fun for the kids. Of course, our kids don’t get any big presents for Christmas but we do sing Christmas carols and celebrate the festival by sharing our good fortune with others
    I would be interested in learning more about what you do ….

  3. New Webkinz Games…

    Found an interesting search engine for kids. Might help if you look for toys, games, cheats, tips, news or even auctions for favourite toys like Webkinz, ToyRUs, Brio, Fisher-Price and so on……
