Anything that requires batteries. Unless I have batteries. And I never have batteries.
Toys with battery compartments that can be opened only by miniature screwdrivers. I dont have any of those either.
One small introductory component to an expensive, multi-layered toy collection that we do not already own.
Toys that come anywhere CLOSE to mimicking a police siren.
Toys that require a band saw and the Jaws of Life to extract from their packages.
Pogo sticks. Mini-trampolines. Basically anything that will result in stitches. You owe me an ER copay.
A gift certificate to Chuck E. Cheese. WHO DOES THIS TO A FELLOW MOTHER?
Anything that demands my attention for its survival. I will not be blamed for a fishbowl full of dead sea monkeys.
An Easy Bake Oven, snow cone machine or ice cream maker. Have you tasted that sh*t?
