We always gone back and forth on a train set. I'm not sure why, it's what she plays w/ every time there's one around. I think it's a 'the kid can't have everything' type thing. The kid really does have a lot - we need to really dial it down this coming year.
We dialed it down this Christmas. I only got ds a train table, underwear, and a Little Einsteins toy. Dd got rattles, an embroidered blanket, and fabric books.
I need to think of a way to get the il's to tone it down on their gift giving. I gave them a list and they got everything on it plus tons more for ds.
