My mother spends fortunes on toys for her only grandchild. I'm seriously worried she will give him ADD because whenever he goes there he ends up drowning in a sea of toys, not knowing what to go to next. I can say with certainty though at that young age they are more interested in trying to have what the big people have eg mobile phones, wallets, books etc and then putting them in their mouths! Sure sometimes he plays with his toys, a little bit, but most of them time he is in the cupboard tyring to play with 'real' stuff. That's learning for you I guess!
