My son and my youngest daughter are 15 months apart. For many years it was what I imagine having twins would be like. They loved the same TV shows and any toys that we bought we would have to buy two of the same because they both wanted the same things.
Back then we only had magazines available to find product reviews and I had never seen any reviews for the toys my children wanted. It was all trial and error and parental word of mouth.
Now my kids are all grown and I have a wonderful grandson to buy presents for. One of the things that I LOVE about the internet is that when it's time to buy presents for Brock I can always search for reviews on toys at Pricegrabber.com. This way I can find out if a toy will hold up to rough play, if it has any dangers associated with it, or if it's a great buy. I love reviews from real people telling me about their and their children's experience with a product. I want to keep my special boy safe!
