So I was wondering for those of you with 2+ kids in close age... If you're going to buy a toy that you know (or think) they will love are you planning on buying them each one or just one to share?

I plan on buying this little hoppy horse thing but I wanted to buy both the girls one so they could hop together and so they wouldn't fight over it. DH said that we should just buy 1. I never thought about it I just we'd buy 2 but now I'm not sure.

What are you ladies doing?

Depends on the price of the toy and what our budget is! Last year we bought both the boys a peddle tractor and they share it. It was pretty expensive and we don't really need two of them.

That is a cute horse. I think it's something they could share because two of them might take up too much room. However, they would probably have fun racing side by side! Sorry- I guess I'm no help at all!

Oh- and this Christmas, all 6 of us are getting a Wii. Not sure Lilly will be too thrilled, but the rest of us will be!

I don't have 2+ kids but just sharing my experience from when i was younger. my one sister is about 4 years older than me...well EVERY christmas, my parents would buy us the exact same things because if she didn't, i would want what she had or vice versa. i would probably get two because i think they would love riding it together. and if you find out later only one was necessary, you could always try to sell one.

that is cute! I personally would want to get 2 of them so they could play with them together. However, we have done shared gifts as the kids have gotten older: Xbox 360, with each of them getting separate games but not duplicate games. One year they all 4 got a computer and a desk to put it on. some things they have to share but something like that if you have the money, I'd get them their own. JMO
