IDK, sheltering my kids from disappointment isn't something I would do in this case. They would get the toy she bought..

This. It's Christmas. There are any other gifts. While its a bummer~ other gifts can and do break too. It's just life mama.

I wouldn't shelter kids from disappointment. It is a good lesson in teaching them to be gracious even though it isn't a toy they wanted. If the start to cry and act ungrateful tell them that behavior isn't ok. In a week bring it to a thrift store if it isn't broken. I wouldn't intercept personally they don't need to be sheltered from disappointment especially with Mil there.

Re: Confession

This year it was plastic animal sets that smell so badly of chemicals that I literally couldn't even put them in the donate box, they went into a bag in the trunk of my car and got donated first thing this morning. My MIL has witnessed the disappointment, finally! Last toy broke immediately after assembly, when she was there to see it happen.
