The holidays were SIX months ago! By now many of the toys your kids received during the holidays last year have been set aside, but I’ll bet there’s at least one that’s still getting regular use. So tell us:


This giveaway has ended. Congrats to our winner, Veronica R. L. I’ve emailed Veronica with the good news. Thanks for entering!

Leave a comment below with the answer to this question by 11:59 pm ET Wednesday and you’ll be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card! Be sure to include your kids’ ages.

If you like, you can also tell us which toys were duds.

I create BC’s super-popular Toys that Get Played With lists from your comments, so please chime in! The more responses, the better the lists!

I’ll share the new toy lists with you in October.

The fine print:

I’ll choose a winner randomly from the qualifying comments on Thursday, June 29 & notify that reader via the email address used when leaving the comment. I’ll also announce the winner here and on Facebook. The winner will have four business days to respond. If I don’t hear from her/him by the end of the day Tuesday, I’ll choose a new winner. One entry per family. Open to U.S. readers 18 and older only.

Good luck!
