A tricycle
A baby doll
A stroller
A rocking horse
a baby grand piano
fisher-price play house thing??
A baby grand piano
One of those animal zoo trains???

And those are just from her immediate family!

I know what you're dealing with, DD is the first grandchild on both sides of the family, and her birthday was 1 month before Christmas. I took some of the toys to my sister's house (we visit/she babysits about 1X a week) and if MIL's house wasn't a total disaster, I'd have taken some there too. I also put up some of the toys (in the attic) for a month, then rotate them out with what she's been playing with. That way, she gets to play with all of her toys, but they're not carpeting the house, and she doesn't get bored with them.

Re: Spoiled baby...

yea that's pretty much what happened to DS#1 for Christmas! I can't even begin to list the stuff that he got bc there's WAAAAAAYYYYYYY too much! My parents went nuts. We pretty much don't have a living room anymore because there's nowhere else to put his toys!! I'm actually kind of mad about it bc they KNEW they were overdoing it and that we wouldn't have room but they absolutely had to get each and everything that they found that he'd like.

Re: Spoiled baby...

It was that way with dd also. She had 2 rooms full of toys...it was ridiculous. We just have really good garage sales, lol. I tell everyone, every year, not to overdo it, so when they do I don't feel bad about returning it or selling it. This year though I have detailed lists about homeschooling supplies or savings accounts that they can contribute to, b/c we can't deal with any more toys.

Re: Spoiled baby...

Get her something small for a keepsake like jewelry or something practical like a new car seat. Sounds like she is getting plenty of toys


BTW We Love Love Love our fisher price house. It is big but entertains our little guy for hours every day.
