A Listmania! list by Carie McCrary(Madison, Alabama United States)
The list author says: "Been there, done that? Bought a the toy your child just had to have only to find that they played with it for just a short time and then were done with it? Here are the toys that were good investment for my children."
"I have to admit that I did not want to jump on the "bigger game system bandwagon". When my oldest started asking for a DS at age 7, I held her off for a year. She was still playing with her Leapster and if she was going to play a video game, then I wanted it to be educational! Sometimes, though, you gotta give in."
"You will never go wrong with this gift. Starting at about age 18mos., my children loved these and played and played with them. Currently my 5 year old boy uses them to make ramps for his cars and the girls use them to make hide-outs for their Pet Shop toys!"
