I can't help but wonder if buying each of them something like this or like this would be a better investment for long-term use and teach them some creativity in the kitchen with ingredients at hand, flavor combinations and the like, to boot.
Nah. They might thank me years from now, but I can imagine the disappointment on this Christmas day.
I guess it's going to be Barbies and FurReal Pets this year. They'll get more real play time with those than with a Rube Goldberg contraption that spins gold into candy or ice cream dots.
I hate being a grumpy Scrooge of an auntie!
