DD is 2.5. It is just too easy for me to pick up little $10 gifts for her and there. Amazon basically owns me. I've been stocking up for Hanuka/Christmas but her pile is getting BIG! Melissa and Doug...Disney...Lincoln Logs.... Accessories for her kitchen. Accessories for her doll. Puzzles. Dress up.
I don't think she can process over a dozen gifts in the span of 2 weeks (considering what her grandparents and our family will also give her). I can hold them and give her one per month or so later on? We are currently in this phase where bribery is the only thing that works. But I do worry that she'll develop unrealistic expectation that every time she does what she is supposed to do she'll receive some extrinsic reward. Maybe I'm paranoid.
