Now that most of us have made it through the gift-buying bonanza of the holidays, you might be saying to me, “Gee thanks! You could’ve posted this BEFORE my holiday shoppageddon!” To which my reply would be, “Hey! I was busy buying toys that I’ll regret or suffer through, too!!!”
Plus, even if I had posted this as warning ahead of time, it probably wouldn’t have helped much to prevent the parental suckitude of the toys you bought for a couple of reasons: 1) the “features” listed above are cleverly hidden from paying customers and, 2) you still would have bought it for your kid anyway, because we all love the crap out of our kids and do stupid things for them all the time – ten times over on the holidays. It’s our job.
As usual, I couldn’t fit all of the ways a toy can suck for a parent, so feel free to fill in the gaps and let me know what words I misspelled or which things I left out. Ugh.
