Most expensive items for kids

If you could give your child the best, wouldn't you? So it's no wonder that some parents buy golden rocking horses, diamond pacifiers and life-size robots.

A $600,000.00 rocking horse? Of course, people have every right to spend their money on whatever they want... but if Jay-Z and Beyonce aren't embarassed that the world now knows they blew over half a million dollars on a toddler's plaything, there is something wrong with them.

People that buy these items give you a view of what they are inside and what they value in life.

Are these people out of their f***ing minds? Yeah I guess so. These kids are on their way to being spoiled brats.

I really think the media is trying to make average citizens go postal.  In this day and age of families struggling to pay the bills and keep food on the table, the last thing we need is to see things like this.

What a waste of money. Why not get a $300,000 rocking horse,and donate $300,000 to a worthy charity to help the less fortunate?

Believe me, no child craves a golden rocking horse, however, there are millions of children who crave food, clean water to drink and shelter. And that's just the basic needs. The super wealthy should put their super egos aside and teach their children what's really important.

So sad to see this people wasting money left and right, I wonder how many people in need would $600 K feed, kids at the Saint Jude or single mothers with little ones, so sad.

I wonder, will Blue Ivy be embarrassed or uncaring when she gets old enough to realize that her parents spent $600,000 on what looks like a cold and uncomfortable toy rather than, say,  giving it to a children's charity in her name?

Just because it costs more does not make it "the best". I noticed it's just trashy "celebrities" throwing their money around on this useless crap. You don't hear about Warren Buffett, Mark Cuban, Bill Gates or any of the other wealthy folks buying this for their kids or grandkids. Just people who will probably be found dead of a drug overdose in a hotel somewhere. Yeah, the diamond pacifier would be great until the kid swallows one of the diamonds and chokes to death.

Looks VERY similar to what that fool D. Trump would be sucking on as a child, but these days I think he has a larger pacifier to suck on, same basic shape but very portable.

ok a kid at to around 10 years old that 122,000 dollar "fort" will get a lot of use but then what do you do with it ? sell as a starter "fort " for new parent's
