8 Toys That Are Actually Worse Than Garbage

Mom.me Logo By Kristen Oganowski of Mom.me | Slide 1 of 9: Children playing with toys.

There’s nothing that signifies American consumerism and excess quite like a house full of forgotten, unloved toys. Toys in the bedroom. Toys in the living room. Toys creeping into every corner of the house, rolling onto every surface (including that scary dust-dungeon under the refrigerator).

Some toys are worse than others. I’m thinking specifically of the toys that do not stand the test of time.

These are the toys will not last. They are the ones that do not bring joy that persists more than a week or two. And they are the toys that will end up in the “donate” bag or the trash can faster than you can say, “Please, give my kids experiences, not gifts!”
