This is partly inspired by @anon44377095’ post over the festive period
But also inspired by a Whatsapp picture that my wife just sent me of my daughters playing the notoriously fiddly boardgame Mousetrap.
What wouldn’t your parents buy you as a kid? And did they ever give reasons? I was really keen on getting Mousetrap but I don’t think my dad could be arsed with setting it up for me. Likewise I was really keen on a Mr Frosty and a Sodastream but these were vetoed too. Okay, my dad was a bit of a control freak but still, I won’t let my issues with him get in the way of a good thread!
Also, I welcome responses from the DiS parents - have you refused to buy anything for your kids?
