My kids have a LOT of toys! They live in a house that is also home to a Day Care, so there is never a time where a toy isn’t within arms reach.
Do you know that we had our first nice day of the spring today? Yep, I spent 10 minutes dragging all my kids toys out of the garage so that they could enjoy them in this beautiful weather.
There were other things going on too. Some neighbourhood kids came over, I did groceries, Oh Yeah, and I took the garbage out to the curb.
With all the glorious toy goodness the kids had to play with, I was excited to see how they were going to react.
Were they going to play with their new PlasmaCars???
Most Definitely they’d be using their new hockey nets though!! Right?
You can imagine my surprise, after all my hard work, to find that the most popular toy of the day was in fact something that I had put out with the garbage.
There you have it folks! The 2012 Toy Of The Year is…..
Random Cardboard Box?!
Remember that when you are debating whether or not to get the $600 Kid sized Hummer from Toys R Us. It may look cool to you but the box it comes in will look a lot cooler to your kid!
