Love the Toys, Hate the battery!!

My daughters got a lot of toys from Christmas and their birthdays. My husband family are really spoil them. And actually their toys are pretty neat, but they use TOO MUCH of batteries. It's just so happen today most of them need new batteries and i can't believe that i gotta get around 22 AA batteries, 14 AAA batteries and 16 C plus 2 that square one. And it cost me almost 30 bucks. Any parents feel the same way?

We felt this way too when my little brother started getting the 'cool' gifts that require batteries. After a few days, they have to buy new sets! Whew. So the solution for these? My dad bought rechargeable batteries and batter chargers. Well, yeah it's a lot more expensive but at least you wouldn't have to buy all the time. Plus you can have them pass around the batteries to their other toys instead of turning all the toys on and wasting more batteries. Whew, definitely, I hate toys with batteries. I hate having batteries around the house that don't work. Plus, I hate buying batteries. *LOL*

Yeah, they're life-savers. Just imagine the panic you have to go through when those batteries die-out at night and the kids still wants to play. Whew. If you got rechargeable ones, you just pop it in and wait for a few minutes. Plus, it helps kids to be more patient because they'd understand that it takes time to recharge batteries. =)

I also hate the batteries and like it more when toys run by friction. But kids love the toys that move. They wont accept the fact that yoiu wont buy the toys or you didnt like the toys they got as gifts becoz of the comsumption of too many batteries.
