I said it was gross for middle class families - based on numbers used in the media very often of savings rate, retirement accounts, and student load debt - most middle class families aren't adaquately saving.

No you didn't. You said that in an earlier reply. I copied and pasted your later reply. Again, you said the following:

"But usually a game console is bought for some of the adults in the house to to use - if they're adequately saving than who cares. But when you buy it just for a child (especially if you're not saving) than it seems to set a bar of "what next". When the toys you play with at the age of 8 cost $100 a piece, what are you going to want at 12?"

In that reply, you didn't limit to middle class families that don't adequately save). Especially is not all.

The only time you use the word gross in your whole post is when you mention pedicures.

I guess you answers are okay when you keep moving the goalposts.
