In the age of fidget toys, there are still lots of parents who can’t afford them.
For example, a little one can’t get enough of a fidget toy.
“There’s always something new out there to be bought,” said Linda, who asked that her last name not be used for fear of upsetting her child.
She said her daughter has bought more than 20 toys in the last year.
And when she does buy toys, she usually doesn’t have the right toys for her child, like a fanny pack that is too big.
Linda, a retired elementary school teacher, is one of the parents who is making it a point to get rid of fad toys.
“We don’t want to have to have them around for a long time,” she said.
Linda said she’s also getting rid of her own fidgeting toy collection.
“I’m trying to get myself out of that habit.”
For now, she’s keeping her daughter from going to a friend’s house and playing with her toys.
She doesn’t want her daughter to see how she reacts when someone else’s toys go in the trash.
“But they’ll also watch movies and go, ‘How can they watch that?'” “
Linda said that it’s her job to tell her kids that it is OK to let the fad go. “

Linda said that it’s her job to tell her kids that it is OK to let the fad go.
“Just let it go,” she says.
“You don’t have to do anything to get it out of the house.
If you want it, let it be.”
