If the family can afford the toy without taking on debt, if they know the kid is responsible, then I don't see anything wrong with buying a somewhat pricy gift.It's nice to think we all live in a bubble, but we don't. We're not talking about some rare expensive gift for just some random child. We're talking about what's become a marketing phenomenon and seen as a new "norm". Household wealth going down at the same time retailers are raising the dollar-bar of the products they sell is not just a coincidence and can't all be blamed on the housing bubble.
