On kids toys, save or splurge?
When in comes to our kids, we tend to spoil them a lot. In my case, when I see something nice in the mall for Gwen, I don’t care if it’s a bit pricey as long as it’s nice. I wanted to give her the best of everything. Yung tipong, si Gwen, nakakapagsuot ng mga tig-thousand pesoses na mga damit at shoes, but when it comes with my things, when I see something nice in the mall, minsan I’ll put it off and I’ll wait for my next Divi day kasi dun na lang ako bibili nung sa akin. Is it the same for you mommies?
Anyway, on our recent trip to Toys R Us, I bought her a fruits play set, cute because it has a velcro so that you can really pretend to slice it in half. Gwen’s lola bought her a kitchen play set so it’s a nice addition to the set.
It’s really good for the price of Php 129 lang, we opened it at home and it’s made of thick hard plastic. Binato-bato na rin ni Gwen hindi pa naman sira, =).
I was so happy with my purchase because after roaming around inside Toys R Us, I saw that there are other fruits play set but more expensive.
This is the first one I picked up, the Chop and Play set is Php 299.75. I really like the Slice-a-rific playset but I don’t like the Php 399.75 pricetag (but I’m still thinking about it and I might buy the burger, pizza and ice cream set, haha low EQ)
Sometimes, manufacturers will also use the popularity of Disney so that they can sell the toys at a higher price, like this Disney fruits play set…
With kids toys, I’ll definitely choose to SAVE. I learned my lesson back when I bought Gwen a few expensive toys like her Boikido Station from Youji & Me. They easily get uninterested with their toys after a while, kaya si Boikido, pangdisplay na lang, but she doesn’t play with it at all.
Are you guilty of spoiling your kids too with material things such as clothes and toys? What are your recent buys for you little ones?
