    Too funny and totally ridiculous. I have a niece and nephew (6 & 8 yrs old) that run with that sort of crowd. It's amazing the amount of stuff they get for their birthdays. I went to a Chucky Cheese party for one of them (if there was ever a place that needed a liquor license...) my brother had to haul the gifts home (unopened) in garbage bags. It took the kid 2 weeks to open all the presents. Totally nuts.

    Let's guess what they're asking for....

    iPod Touch second generation
    Blackberry Pearl
    Skydiving Lessons
    A go-kart
    The newest playstation/nintendo/whatever.

    What ever happend to 8 year-olds playing with legos? What kind of kid needs stuff like that?

    I don't think you should take away - or subsitute new technologies from (your) children.

    It's just the way life goes. Things change. I am happy my parents didn't force my brothers and I to create our own games with clay, as they did in their childhood.

    We got lego, k'nex, sega and all these other fancy (at that time) things. And these were not cheap at all!! Prices comparable to Ipods and Nintendo's nowadays.

    And about the registry card... hmm well I don't know. I don't think it's correct, but if people are going to buy him stuff, at least he'll get what he wants.

    Today's parents love to compete with each other in the status category for Kid's parties. My sister is one of them.icon_confused.gif She spent at least $400 on the last party ( water slide, etc). I will attend for an hour at most. Registry.... OMFG!!!!icon_eek.gif

    I have asked who/what does an eight year old register with. I will let you know when I get a reply.

    Greedy, twisted and an absolute faux pas on the parents' part. What kind of message are they sending?icon_rolleyes.gif

    He should find the loudest, most complex, obnoxious assembly required toy he can find for under 10 bucks. The only note on the card should be "register this!"

    Don't you resent invitations of any kind that are merely a direct solicitation for a gift? I'd consider sending my *regrets*. What a shame - I'll be *out of town*. Sometimes though, they STILL hope you'll send a gift!

    The best people send invitations that say, "No presents - just your presence!"
