My SO is always getting our two year old toys that are too old for him (it says "for 3+" or "4+" on the package. Not because there are tiny parts he can choke on, but because it takes like a degree in rocket science to assemble, and you know, the dexterity and patience of a 3 or 4 year old, not a 2 year old! The last time he did this the toy was hardly ever played with and is sitting in the pack n play (aka storage container) disassembled in our living room. I just get annoyed because I feel it is a waste of money. I should probably be thankful I have nothing more serious to complain about, but it still irks me.
When I was pregnant with our first dh was overseas and only able to come home for 2 weeks for the birth. We went to TRU so I could get some last minute things before the birth. I told him to pick something out for the baby- a "gift" for him. He picked a couple of Star Wars guys 3+
You know, we did a huge clean out of our house and toys, after 7 kids and all the stuff they had collected.... honestly even with my youngest being almost 4, my kids don't really play with toys much anymore. I had a HUGE bin of baby toys... I took out about the amount of a target shopping bag, and that was about all my kids played with as babies/toddlers. Yet when a birthday comes I feel like I MUST get them a ton of stuff??
