I had a dialog with a good friend about this subject some time in the past and actually appreciated what she stated.

My daughter really has fairly few toys and once I got down to purchase some, I all the time find yourself turning down most of them. Truly, for her first yr of life, we purchased no toys ourselves in anyway, apart from Christmas and her birthday. I figured, with the items she received, she had greater than sufficient.
