Batteries, batteries, batteries

My three year old got a non-mechanized toy motorcycle for his birthday this weekend, and he's been asking me to 'push the button,' and 'make it go' over and over. Finally he said "turn it ON mommy!", to which I replied, 'it doesn't have any batteries!' And he said "Oh dear! We better go to the store and get some!"

That's it. No more toys with batteries.

I am so with you on the no toys with batteries thing. We've had a few disasters and they always drive me crazy.

When we receive them as presents, I take the batteries out before handing on the toy and so far Bella has been blissfully ignorant that the toys are supposed to be doing anything. Her favorite stuffed animal is a Pooh bear that she has no idea is capable of talking if he has batteries in him.
