ROFL @ the lint roller!

My mom told me that she got my dd a huge giant tub of moon sand. :/

Baby Alive potty doll. I returned it before dd could see it - I don't need a doll that poops and makes creepy giggling noises.

There is actually a turd in the toilet? Wow, I don't need one of those, I already have the real thing. My "doll" even points out how big those turds are...she is PROUD of them

It's like, a little flipping disc... one side is clean potty water, and the other side is yellowish water with a turd, if I remember correctly. But there is DEFINITELY a picture of a turd. It looks like Mr. Hankey without the anthropomorphism

Yummy : (Seriously that is nasty! Great, watch my daughter get one tomorrow )

So far DS has gotten 3 gifts: 2 electronic (ugh!) and one a stuffed Tigger. Why do people insist on buying children stuffed animals! DS has absolutely no interest in stuffed animals (and MIL gives him one everytime she sees him!!)

One of the electronic toys and the Tigger are still in the box. If I can't take them back they are going on eBay! We had to open the other toy b/c we were at a friends house and they obviously were very excited about seeing him play with it. I only let him use it on the classical music selection on low volume. The other settings are annoying beyond belief!

Maybe they were trying to hint at something.. Do you cook now?

I soooo wanted to get the roller coaster for ds. I came thisclose to buying it. Then decided to wait until he's just a bit older.

We haven't gotten any toys that annoy me this year. We live far from relatives, so we get gift cards instead. I like that.

My gift pet peeve is stuffed animals. I hate them. DS has no interest in them what so ever and we already have several.

DS got a really annoying shake and let go batman car. Which he loved, absolutely adored. Fortunately we were visiting my parents and had flown down so I left it behind since it "won't fit" when I was packing things up. He didn't really get much else that was annoying this year, my family knows I'll leave behind gifts at my parents lake house though if I don't want them in my house, and they know all excessively loud and annoying toys will be left behind.

We'll have to see what my in-laws got him tomorow, but hopefully they got stuff off the list we gave them, if not we'll leave annoying toys at their house, since they watch DS once a week at the moment for us, I even have a good excuse of the dog would bark at it, so he'll get more use of out if it here.

An electronic stuffed puppy that lights up and sings (OMG I didn't know they made toys that awful). MIL immeadiately ripped it out of the box for DS.

An electronic light up ring stacking toy (we already have the non-electronic version, TYVM). Again, immeadiately ripped open the box. So much for returning.

A stuffed horse (She loves horses and gets him one for every holiday. They all get returned).

And from my SIL... a Leap Frog learning book. It is the most annoying of them all, and probably cost the most too.

I'll have to read everyone else's answers. My ILs have sent us a bunch of Harry and David stuff. The bad part is that DS is allergic to milk. So the only thing he's been able to eat is pears.

That means I opened cookies, chocolate, cheesecake, etc in front of him that he cannot have. I think this is weird and kind of mean, actually. (The boxes were delivered while he was in the house and said on the outside to open them right away so I did--if I had known it was all going to be stuff he couldn't have I would have left it until he was in bed.)

My mom asked what we wanted for dd, and made a few suggestions, one of which was a dollhouse. I said, "Get her whatever you want, but please don't get her a dollhouse." We're moving from a house to an apartment in a few months, and we're really trying to cut back on stuff, especially items that take up a lot of space (which I told her). I also think dd is still a little too young (which I told her). And, dh and I had planned on getting her a dollhouse ourselves, sometime in the future, as a special birthday present.

Guess what my mom got dd? :

Plus, she called and said, "I just HAD to get it. I wanted to get her something special. One of our patients at work said that [the particular model] was a great toy, so I had the store messenger it over." So this "special" gift--that I explicitly asked her not to get--was chosen by someone she happened to talk to, because HIS kid wanted it, and she ordered it without even going to the store and seeing it. How very, very personal.

To be fair, it wasn't a wrapped gift-y thing. My mother always buys me lint rollers.
