I love Ikea´s style and have bought a lot of nice things there, but I also have a bed and dresser that constantly need adjustments. I like buying kids´ clothes at Target and the quality is fine. Even though we are a family of 4 we don´t go to Costco or similar stores since we don´t have space to store the large quantities. At the moment we are traveling in Spain and I am surprised by the poor quality of the battery operated toys here. It doesn´t make sense to buy something cheap if it breaks the same day.

Hi Lisa,

I think Ellen Ruppel Shell is right about cheap goods. When I was growing up, furniture was more substantial, often made out of laminated wood rather than particle board.

Before the plastic age, toys were more substantial, too.

Thanks for your comment,
Rita
