I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!!! My inlaws keep buying my kids huge toys, and I officially have no fucking space left. You know, in my 3 bedroom detached house that we’ve only lived in under 3 years. DH said that he had spoken to them about it, then for DS’s birthday in September they walked in with this fucker. Bonus was that they put it together before bringing it over so it’s not like we could return it, and I don’t feel like being the asshole in my kids’ eyes by taking it away when they’re so obviously stoked. Now here’s the conundrum this Christmas: when I was a child, my dad built me a Barbie house and it’s been in his basement for the last 25 years until I had kids of my own to pass it on to. Last week we moved it and I’m working on painting it and changing the carpets. Now, I’m not even sure where we’re gonna put it since IL’s gifts are taking up all the space, but if I have to I’ll be getting rid of a few. I also made and Amazon wish list with Calico Critters sets to fill up the house (DD is only 4 and I think she’ll enjoy those more than Barbie). I plan on sending a link to my mom, and I told DH that my ideal scenario would be for his parents to buy directly from the list. He said that he felt like that would take the “fun” out of it for them. Smoke practically came out of my ears. First, their “fun” has so far meant that I haven’t been given the courtesy of choosing whether I want to house massive toys or not. Second, following the list would mean that DD has a completely furnished dollhouse by the end of Christmas, with no doubles or extras or empty rooms. That would be pretty awesome for her. Third, DH only told them “calico Critters stuff”, no other details. Knowing them, they’ll buy something like this instead of something like this. I’ll get to be the jerk that takes away the cutesy dollhouse because we don’t need a second one (btw, my dollhouse is massive and the shit. All my friends were crazy jealous lol). Fourth and lastly, I feel like not listening to us when DH said to tone it down deserves consequences, namely being told exactly what to buy even if it’s not as fun. I could give a fuck about their fun, when I have to manoeuvre around a trashed train table every single day because my kids are too young to play gently with a toy that has about a hundred detachable parts.

Could you get him a push toy? That way he can practice on his own?

We bought this for our daughters first birthday and she loved it immediately.

u/gigdy · 4 pointsr/lifehacks
u/universe_from_above · 3 pointsr/germany

No, that's the Kettcar made by Kettler.



u/bitterred · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

That's actually the kind of walker I had wanted but we ended up with this lion thing instead, which my son could not figure out how to use as a walker. He loves to ride on it though. Just a warning, it is annoying.

u/Hal9_ooo · 3 pointsr/Whatcouldgowrong

Its a kids roller coaster similar to this , except it looks like he took the last section of it off before propping it up on the chair. It didnt really break, but came apart at the point where 2 the top and middle section come together. Its made of hollow plastic like the playschool slides and outdoor playsets.

u/lumpycakemix · 3 pointsr/parentsofmultiples

My twins were gifted this car on their first bday and loved it then and still play with it at 2!

Peg Perego John Deere Ground Loader Ride On, Green

u/robbyking · 2 pointsr/MTB

So we started him on a Hape 4-wheel "bike" and then moved him to this bike (a Pubic Sprout) when he was tall enough. (He's really big for his age: 99th percentile for both height and weight.)

He spent a lot of time dragging it around between his legs before finally sitting down to ride, and for a while he’d only “glide” for a foot or two at a time. Then one day we were at the park and it seemed to just click, and he went from being able to ride a few feet at a time to being able to ride 45’.

My wife and I are both avid cyclists (and all-season bike commuters), and we put far more in town miles on our bikes than on our car. We have a Kona Minute we use to take him to pre-school, so for him riding is nothing special, it’s just the regular way you get around town.

u/indigoblue1 · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I’ve been obsessively researching toys for our first birthday/Christmas. I’m all about toys that serve multiple purposes and can be used for a couple years and through multiple children. Here are some ideas I have came up with...

activity cube - there are all sorts of different models and brands depending on budget.
Radio Flyer Walker Wagon
Hape Scooter

Pikler triangles look awesome, but they are a little out of our budget. I might see if my husband can build one though.
. pikler triangle

We are also looking at getting some high quality wood blocks - but they might be a little old for right now. Maybe for second birthday.

u/blong · 2 pointsr/parent

My favorite gift for first birthdays is usually a ride-on. There's a whole bunch to choose from, and your lower price will keep a lid on the noisy obnoxious ones. The kids do love when they make noise, but if you get one that does, go for ones that make a limited sound when a button is pushed, not ones that "turn on" and go on & on, or even go off at random times.

If they have wood floors, though, it might be good to go with one which has rubber wheels. At least go with one which has flat plastic wheels, and not any kind of shape on the wheels. The rubber wheeled ones may be out of your price range, though.

The castor type wheel ones are good too, like this one:

My daughter loves this one, though its just over your price range:

otherwise, trucks are always awesome

This Fisher Price musical car has no off switch, and multiple ways of making the worst music possible. I can still hear it years after mine mysteriously disappeared.....

From the description:
"So much music! So much fun! Join the parade with the Fisher price Little People music parade ride-on! Plays 5 different marching tunes! Use the keyboard to compose your own tune!
Fun instrument sounds include trumpet, drums, saxophone, tuba and 5 piano keys."

  1. Cold baby chew toys. Seriously teething around this age makes your life difficult. A hard teether is also really nice to have as well.
  2. Skip the highchair and go for a Fisher Price Booster. My son is 18 months and hates the regular high chair already. He loves being able to sit at the table with everyone else. This is the only "high chair" we've had and it's worked great These you can pick up at garage sales, thrift stores, Once Upon a Child really cheap.
  3. Lots of clothes. Baby's this age can be messy. Between the drooling, playing, and exploring food there will be a lot of changes in his future.
  4. a push toy. We have this car which really grows with the child.
  5. Sippy Cups: our favorite is playtex, all the other ones we've tried seem leaky.

    Honestly I suggest checking out garage sales and thrift stores this weekend. That's where most of our kid's things have come from.
u/emazur · 2 pointsr/funny

The kind they advertised on TV as toys were called Rollo Racers. They still have them on Amazon

u/imakethingsgoboom · 2 pointsr/HelpMeFind
u/hannfrank · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I am racking my brain trying to think of what ry really loved at that age. Not sure on your price point but ry had [this] ( that he loved and was good for indoors in winter at that age :)

Also- bath crayons, bath toys!

u/watery_tart_ · 2 pointsr/toddlers

For some reason mine can't get enough of running back and forth across the sofa or bed saying "Goomp goomp goomp." We also have a little scooter we got at a yard sale that he uses indoors, various balls and toy cars. Wooden puzzles like this occupy him for a good while. Also rummaging through the kitchen cabinets and drawers that have relatively benign objects in them (pots and pans, Tupperware). Chasing him from room to room or an early type of "hide and seek" (really just stepping around a corner and peeking out at him until he runs over). Watching cars drive by. He also loves diving off the changing table onto the sofa headfirst, but I don't really recommend that...

u/charcuterie_bored · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

My son has this walker which I like cuz it's not electronic but I got it at a yard sale for like $5. But honestly my son is more content to just push around and play with a cardboard diaper box or an upside laundry hamper.

Edit: also my son has some obnoxious electronic toys that he likes playing with even when I turn them off/take the batteries out. He just like pressing buttons even if they don't make noise when he presses them.

u/Skinnyme7381 · 2 pointsr/Welding

I had a cracker box that rode around in this until I upgraded to the hand truck.

u/deathbydietcoke · 2 pointsr/Mommit

My five year old got these things for his first birthday, and we pulled them out again for #2’s first birthday and he loves them just as much. :)

Push and Ride Racer

Crawl Around Car

u/bompitybomp · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I can't find the exact one, but it's a Little Tykes one that's similar to this:

u/extrainternatial · 1 pointr/radiocontrol

in some mall's i go to they have cars like those radio controlled but only radio controlled, i think it could be easier to buy one already radio controlled and hack it to be manual too, or give the kids the controller.

this one looks like it has both ways to control

u/the_resident_skeptic · 1 pointr/londonontario

They would then be classified as limited speed motorcycles like a moped, but that classification is for vehicles that can reach 90km/h, like those 125cc Hondas.

Your reasoning is arbitrary and not thought-out. My son therefore needs a license and insurance for his Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler by your logic.

And what about mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs? My poor grandmother and has had two hip replacements. she's already struggling on her pension does she really need to start paying some insurance company to get around town? Do you work for Desjardin?

u/mocmocmoc81 · 1 pointr/malaysia

Bro... Barbie power wheels already cost more than rm1k

u/annerevenant · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My MIL has purchased us some gifts, LO will be just under 4 months and got us these things:

Touch and Crawl

Squeeze and Teethe Elephant (basically a cheaper Sophie Giraffe alternative because I can't fathom spending $20 on a teether)

This is what else is on her wishlist:

Rock and Rattle Maracas

3-in-1 Sit and Stride Lion

Lamaze Stacking Rings

We wanted toys that were above her age range that she could grow with rather than things for her age right now.

u/Denixen1 · 1 pointr/farmingsimulator

This is perfect for you! Since you need more 'realism' 🤣

u/elemonated · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I just wanted to show you this.

But my submission is:


  2. I would have thought this was awesome as a kid.

    I don't want anything if I win, I just want a picture of the little girl using what you pick :3
u/AndyBatch · 1 pointr/homegym

It's actually the truck! I wish I had this over the coupe.

u/Hell_is_full · 1 pointr/AskReddit

New Silver MP3 Kids Ride on R/C Remote Control Power Wheels Car RC Ride On Car

u/wootz12 · 1 pointr/pics

We had these. Kind of expensive..

u/Catbunny · 1 pointr/Mommit

I had serioulsy considered that. I almost got one for her when she first started sitting to encourage, but went with this since it doubled as a walking toy. She still loves it. I LOVE things that grow with the kids. Cuts down on toys a bit. Edit: It also served as a cat toy with all the spinning parts.

u/colocada · 1 pointr/pics

My mom used to takes us to the library and we would bring our Playskool wagon to fill with books.

u/fourg · 1 pointr/Parenting

Our 14 month old son is taking a few steps, but still prefers to plop down and crawl because I'm guessing he just likes that it's just quicker for him. He continues to explore walking and getting better. For now he loves walking Little Tikes push walker all over our house and at the park.

u/starly · 1 pointr/beyondthebump
u/foxsable · 1 pointr/predaddit

Things we have not had enough of over the years: Pacifiers (20.. not enough, when you lose enough to get down to 6), Bibs, Socks.
Other things we found extremely valuable: A rock and play, The woombie which is like an auto swaddle that stays swaddled, and This cool thing was awesome at teaching her to walk, and she still rides on it sometimes!

Things we had too many of: Newborn sized stuff, onesies especially. Towels. Blankets (minus swaddle blankets), hats.

push toy

walkeR and ride on -this was a favorite of my sons for a long, long time, and I've often said it was the best $ I ever spent, that kids loved it so much.

pull toy

If you want to up it, get wooden versions of them. They are learning to walk at that age, so toys that focus on walking are a really big hit.

u/DrLariat · 0 pointsr/PS4

Literally anyone of any age could enjoy the following toy.

That does not change it's intended audience.
