Jubbling Holiday Shopping Guide: Avoid Toys That Just Do The Endless Loop

It’s not K’nex fault for creating a looping roller coaster that my son really wanted – it’s kind of my fault for saying “go ahead, use your birthday money to buy it.” We spent one hour building it, 30 minutes watching it loop and within 24 hours, lost a key part so it wouldn’t work. Now it’s an inoperable reminder of what we shouldn’t purchase in the future. I’ve discovered that looping and boring are interchangeable when it comes to kids toys.

New or used Legos/Duplos are different. They make a great holiday gift because they are practically indestructible and every creation can be different. Your kids can construct a castle one day and then build a soon-to-be destroyed voodoo version of their sibling the next.
