Books: We have too many for Joey, and still buy them. He loves them and often when you don't hear him playing, he's in the living room reading one of them (either its one he doesn't know and he's flipping through it, or its one he has memorized and is reciting the words as he flips through them). He is a lover of Dr. Seuss (If you don't believe me, I'd be happy to recite "There's a Wocket In My Pocket" from memory in under 15 seconds)
Outdoor Toys: Anyone here think Joey doesn't already have a whole variety of footballs already?
Science Toys: My next big purchase (probably next spring) will be a nice reflector telescope. Why? Cause I've always wanted one, and Joey is getting old enough to see what Daddy enjoys doing, so when he gets a little older and gets to use the telescope, he'll be excited about it. Then other science toys will follow (microscope, electronic wiring toys, ham radio, etc...).
Movies: We actually don't have that many. Sure a few Disney movies (Finding Nemo is Joey's current favorite... you should hear him say "That's not funny! I know Funny! I'm a ClownFish!"), and a couple of Veggie Tales, but, honestly, he sees a movie once every week or two at most. He only really watches TV 3 times a week when both mommy & daddy are getting ready for work (and its usually under 30 minutes). A movie is for a night when we get carryout and just want to sit and relax in front of the TV.
Like I said, I appreciated a lot of the other ideas that came up, and I don't mean to offend anyone. I just wanted to reiterate that, although the toy in question was something that'd put the kid in front of the TV more isn't because I want to put him in front of the TV instead of other things. It just seemed appropriate cause he sometimes comes into my room and tells me to "play football... get controller please" (which is "Joey speak" for: Turn on Madden and play it, and give me the other controller so it looks like I'm playing with you). This way, when he asks that, he can be the one playing the game, and he gets a little learning out of it, too.
So, as you may have guessed, we did order one online and should get it before Christmas. I can give out my review at the end of the month/beginning of next year if anyone is interested.
