Parents wasting cash on toys that kids ignore
If you’ve got kids and you’re looking for a way to reduce your outgoings in the wake of the horrific cuts announced today, take a look around their bedrooms, specifically at their toys. Loads of them is there?
There probably is according to the findings of a new survey, which reveals that an average child owns 238 toys but plays with only 12 ‘favourites’ on a regular basis, making the rest of them nothing more than expensive decorations.
Additionally, one in two of the 3,000 parents who took part in the survey admitted to ‘wasting hundreds of pounds’ on brightly-coloured plastic shit that their younglings never even play with.
The average parent thinks their child receives a staggering £660.30 worth of toys every single year from themselves as well as friends and family – possibly enough to buy one imaginary ‘super toy’ that would do everything. Or so we imagine.
Are you a parent who recognises the picture we’ve painted? Ashamed of yourself are you?
