Have you ever given your child a toy you thought she’d love only to find it forgotten less than a week later? Ugh.
Welcome to the 2014 updates of Baby Cheapskate’s “Toys That Get Played With” lists. The toys on this list are here for one reason and one reason alone – because kids love them and continue to play with them long after the holiday decor is boxed up.
There’s no one toy that every kid likes, but the toys on the list have proven track records. Hundreds of Baby Cheapskate readers have responded to more than half a dozen polls posted thrice yearly over the course of four years about which holiday toys made it to the top of the toy pile and stayed there. I’ve pored through the responses to compile this list. Each toy is linked to its listing on Amazon so that you can learn more about it.
