I don’t have kids, but I live with my 7 and 10 year old siblings. 

I’m praying for no Furbys! They creep me out! No loud toys either. haha Thier voices are far loud enough.

@julies1949:  bahaha, I got my nephew a drum set. Yes, I am “that” aunt. I did get a giant box of chocolates to go with it.

Also Nerf guns with extra bullets and the fastest sled made. My SIL will get me back, of that I am sure. Lol

This thing.  I am AFRAID of this thing–when my niece and nephew were little, my sister bought it for them.  It wouldn’t stop talking.  It would talk from inside a locked closet.  One day, while babysitting, I took out the batteries, and I swear I hear that damn thing laugh.

I said over and over that I didn’t want one.

Guess what came in a bag of hand-me-down toys this weekend. 🙁

I am desperately praying for no more road rippers trucks they are obnoxious and go off even when no one is near it!

Anything that involves food, like the easy-bake oven. My step-daughter got one for christmas last year, used up the supplies it came with, and now it sits taking up space. She also got a smoothie maker that never worked anyways. I’m all for gifts that take up little space or things I know will get used over and over again (without having to buy anything else).

@tksjewelry:  Ha ha!  I’m “that” aunt too.  In fact, my husband and I were shopping for gifts this summer for kids of friends of ours, picking out the noisy ones, as per usual, and we suddenly turned to each other and said at the same time, “we are so screwed when the baby arrives”.  My brother alone has years of revenge to get back at us for…

@Quietserenity:  

Omg we have that & it’s soooo creepy/ annoying. I try to dissuade people from toys altogether. I know, im a grinch. We just have so many & so little space & he hardly plays with them. I encourage books, puzzles, clothing & outdoor gear.
