5 toys my child got for Christmas that were really for me

Now that the holidays are behind us, a look back at some toys we bought for my son that were really for me.

Toys for children that are really for their parents

As parents, we’ve all done it. I saw a cool toy in the store and decided our kids would really love it. Secretly though, we all know deep down that we kind of wanted it for ourselves. I’m 100% guilty of this, especially now that my son is five and likes cooler toys. I’ll be honest too, most of the time I find myself buying stuff from him that I couldn’t get when I was his age. The fact that I can walk into a toy store and buy literally any toy I want excites the little kid who is always in my heart. With his two sisters, I haven’t been able to buy many cool boy toys, so now that I can, my house is full of things we can both enjoy.
