Like a true RFD'r, my kids get last year's craze. So fidget spinners for one and all!
2018 will be LOL balls.

Everyone say is crap, but they still manage to sell so well at $100 and probably costs <$5 to make
Imagine, if you manage to sell a million piece of this just for 1 holiday season. You just made more money than wining 10 lotto 649 grand prize. (probably half goes to the retailer's profit...but still)

It's all marketing. That's the great thing about not having cable tv, my kids never even heard of this toy nor of hatchimals from last year but I'm sure if they were subjected to the marketing and commercials they would probably want it.

You will not be the NO FUN parent, you will be the parent who has enlightened them, and they'll still be happy with a toy or accessory that is better quality and more durable, while not necessarily more expensive.

What age group is this aimed for?SpicYMchaggis wrote: ↑Dec 6th, 2017 5:32 pmLots of great parenting advice in this thread,
I tried to talk my kids out of this, in fact I usually always try to steer my kids towards practical and useful presents. I even did manage to talk my oldest out of it but with my youngest wouldn't budge when I explained it crap and a waste of money. I asked her what else she would want if we couldnt find this and all she said was "a box of the small LOL" dolls .
Even though like I said I'd sooner just burn the money instead of trip over another stupid doll shoe, I eventually gave in, convinced myself it was maybe worth it because my daughter plays with these dolls for literally hours at a time and it was all she wanted and all she is getting from us for for xmas.
