Oh so very true. Glad our kids no longer play with any of these. My wife tells me I'm going to make a really good grumpy old man some day.
Fun Puzzle.

In addition to the five I got, I'd like to see the rest of the list. I remember my sister telling me that a gift I gave my nephew when he was in elementary school was very annoying. I thought was educational. (I want to see if it made the list)

Indeed Doc! I can think of one VERY annyoing gift my sister got for our daughter when she turned 6.

Please run the complete list when time has expired. Great puzzle!

I loved it -- two I got from experience! Nicely done Marsha!

I have to say that my mouth dropped open when I saw two people had achieved a score of 5, given the difficulty (and to me obscurity) of a couple of the puzzles I got, at least for an American. Is there anything that Slicko doesn't know and is not able to bring immediately to memory? Truly amazing! (And I mean that sincerely--I'm awed by that ability, which I wish I had.)

Great Job Marsha! Really Enjoyed That!

I finished two puzzles with no letters, so I scored well also.

Remember that Slicko is a doctor, so he has access to a lot of toys in the medical center's waiting rooms.
Playing with kids toys while waiting for a patient keep him being grumpy!

Nice job Marsha!

So fun, Marsha!

The best I have ever done on a puzzle. Something about us both being teachers tuned me into the scheme of things.

Okay, so one year I gave my nephew (I think he was 6) a cannister of pick-up sticks. I thought it would help his manual dexterity. My sister said in the future, I was only allowed to give him toys with no more than 3 pieces - preferably 1.

I was the mom that had all the kids over all the time. One day, I noticed that Sherry, the daughter of a neighbor, was walking funny -- turned out she had at least and inch and a half of Play Doh stuck to her shoe -- and she had spread it through out the house. Play Doh was totally forbidden in my house after that including refusing to buy cereal that had Play Doh as a prize!

I remember when my younger brother was about two he loved to rock in a rocking chair, so my Dad brought him a rocking chair for Christmas that year that had a music box on it so when he rocked it played, yeah you guessed it my Dad had that music box off there before Christmas day was half over. but J Kent loved the rocking chair anyway and boy did we enjoy the quiet. charlotte

There were two I didn't get at all. What on earth is a voice learning????

Liked it, however. Thanks.

Here is one example of voice learning

Alphabet Apple

Thanks Taco for the Alphabet Apple link. After reading the reviews, looks like a great toy for my two year old grandson.

BUT, can you stand hear the constant repitition of the same sounds, OVER and OVER AGAIN?

Additionally, how about a drumset for the little whippersnapper?

Gee, you guys are real party poopers Let the wee darlings have whatever will help their brains grow. I know it hurts like crazy to step on a Lego piece & who wants to pick up Pick-up sticks if you're not playing but those kinds of toys are good for the lil' blighters. Some of the toys listed don't do much to stimulate the brain but kids usually get bored with those quickly. I'm with you are the Play Dough though, too many things get ruined thus making it an expensive toy but on a couple of sites they listed bubbles. Bubbles are delightful, my son spent hours blowing them off the sundeck with just about all the teenagers & adults joining in. Great fun

Good puzzle, Marsha

Thanks guys and gals. I remember one Christmas two of my aunts BOTH gave my son a set of drums. He had a ball until he hit them too hard and broke both of them. The toy he had that I hated the most that was that silly 'inch worm' that you sat on and moved across the floor. The sound was gross.
I'm in Georgia so I can't stay on as long as I usually do. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Marsha
