The list author says: "I am the father of spoiled children. We have a hard time finding toys on the toy aisle they don't already own. I wish to use what I have learned, on the path to financial ruin, to help others discover toys that are under low in price, and can not miss. I hope this list is useful, especially to those who may not know what the kid would like. THESE TOYS CAN"T MISS with any type of kid."
"The price on this one varies. I tried to avoid toys around $40 but with all of the features on this toy, it can easily pass for a "big" present around B-days or holidays. Can't miss for sure, for boys."
"A can't miss for kids who love Legos. I was frustrated with the high price of other movie based sets. A relatively cheap large set of Legos that once assembled will become one of your child's favorites. The grapple is hours of fun alone for them."
"Lego sets are bad about taking hours to put together, and then they don't play with the set. This one seems to be my kid's favorite. it is protected and cherished by them. Many fun features for the Sponge Bob / Lego loving child."
"These are for kids who are a bit young to play guitar hero or a similar video game. Check into the amplifier listed below to complete the set. These two together can make an out-of-date grandparent into a hero. And, for not much money. They are easy on baterries."
"This toy is perfect for the kid who can't yet play board games, but wants to play a game with you. It's easy and fun for all. And, it leaves the game open for "made up rules", something younger kids love to do."
"Reminder to look at target sets is what this is. The one we own fits at the end of a hallway, or is suitable for outside. Search for one you like if this strikes a chord. But, a set of bean bags and a 5-gallon bucket could mean hours of fun for you and your kid. Let him/her make up the rules, and keep score on a whiteboard. They will beg you to play daily."
