Overpriced Items For Kids
As a Mother of a sixteen year old daughter I’ve been through all of the stages of Christmas shopping; baby toys, toddler toys, books, Barbies, play kitchens, dress-up clothes…you name it. Now as I look back during my last-minute Christmas hustle, I remember there were items I paid too much for. But as a Mom, “too much” doesn’t exist sometimes. I always thought, “well I can not get my daughter anything cheap!” Geez! Why not? I mean just because it is priced lower than the $300 collector’s Barbie, just because I am paying $10 for a dress-up gown instead of $30, that doesn’t make me a bad Mom.
I ventured out for a few hours running around like a chicken with no head. But let me tell you my head was put back on when I noticed some of the prices on toys. If the Grinch ever stole these toys he wouldn’t have to come back for a long time. These overpriced toys are outrageous. What’s even more unsettling is the companies who made these toys know exactly where to hit the soft spot. Don’t fall for it! Here are some of the overpriced toys I gasped over.
