Spacekid's 7th Birthday List

I have tried to explain to Josie what a birthday list should be. Lots of items so people have choices. $10-$20 price range. Obtainable. Interesting.

Here's Josie's list:

- Furreal Friends Unicorn - A $80 robotic plush that has terrible reviews on amazon. the "not worth the money my kid played with this for one day" type that make me feel good about refusing the spend that much on a toy.

- Shopkins - Tiny little characters that exist everywhere in our house, we've obtained and lost so many. When humanity fails and a new race of robots takes over the world and tears our houses down, they'll find shopkins.

- Corn cob stuffed animal - yes. kid who has too many stuffed animals wants one shaped like a corn on the cob.

- Glitter crayons - doable, although again, I think we had and lost these already, and grandparents do not like getting a pile of $3 items. then again when it's up against the stuffed corn on the cob...

- 3D printed unicorn - Okay YES I learned to use a 3D printer this year. But unicorns suck! Tiny legs, big body, I did two attempts with thingiverse models that fell over and resulted in spaghetti. 3D printing is not like the star trek replicator yet, sorry friends. And objects with small bases suck. Why couldn't she asked for a pyramid?

- Headbands - how many does a kid need?

- Money - after seeing this list there's no way I'd trust her to go shopping.

- Candy - please.

This concludes the birthday list of my soon-to-be 7-year-old.

Totally agree on the pricey items the kid plays with for a day! I've lost track of how many things he begged for and then stopped playing with so quickly.

LOL about ten years ago my friends bought me a Squawkers McCaw FurReal Friend. It's interestingness lasted a week - there's only so much you can get out of those toys even if you're an adult :-)

Perspective. Judgment. A 67-year-old craves not these things.
