Dollar store toys are good only if they’re not going to be used much. We all know that children tend to get bored very easily with toys, so it makes sense buying cheaper ones. However, buying more qualitative ones should be a must if you have babies or toddlers who could choke on broken pieces or poorly made toys.
“These toys break. They’re very cheap, not well made, and you get what you pay for,” says Shelton.
“If your kids tend to get bored of toys fast, it might make sense to go for quantity over quality with easily replaceable playthings,” she adds.
