I think of all he starving babies and children in the world and it breaks my heart. People have become so self-absorbed and thoughtless - they would rather by bling. What has this world come to? So sad.

You know, articles like this if taken seriously can make poor and middle income parents feel as though they aren't providing the best for their children, if they are not keeping up with trends... Why on earth would one want to 'bling out' their baby??? The child does not care or is un-aware of the worth of these extravagant objects (until they get older of course). These items appease the parents, and that's mainly why they get them. Classic example; I know of a parent who spent hundreds of dollars on a train set, and after long hours of assembling- the child was more interested in the card board box than the train set itself!! But, if you have it to spend then why not?

Beyonce & Jay-Z and others like them should be ashamed... If they spend a lot on something functional because it's better quality, that's one thing, but this? Sad...very sad :-(

I remember when my daughter who is now 27 years of age and I had a conversation that led to my telling her that we were poor, and she broke down and refused to accept and believe this.  It broke my heart to see my child who felt that because she had the luxury of a VCR and Television in her bedroomm, with a canopy full size bed,matching dresser with beautiful pecan top, matching wall unit, tons of designer clothes priced within reason, and toys that most poor children did not have all at the wonderful age of 3 years old, and as time went on she had the opportunity to be Blessed by God to go to private school she actually thought we were rich.  I watch her at this day and time to take what she has and make the best of it.  she has graduated from HS within the National Honor Society, published in several Who's Who in America HS and College Editions, and Graduated with a minor in Psychology and a major in Sociology.  I am grateful to God that even though times were extremely hard I was able to keep things of struggle from my daughter who never thought we were really poor.  It is most true that Children are somewhat like Computers "We get out of Them what We put in Them".  I only wish that I could have seen what it could have been like to have been rich enough to give her even more, but we got by.  This is even after the divorce of her father and myself, so statiscally to all single mothers, divorced mothers, widowed mothers, It is Possible.  Prayer Works Wonders

It IS quite ludicrous how expensive Sophie is in the U.S.

My first child was born in Switzerland, and Sophie could be purchased just about everywhere (in grocery stores, department stores, etc.) for about the equivalent of $7-10.

I think French citizens would laugh that Sophie is considered a "trendy, splurge, bling" toy by Americans.

It is funny that people are upset over the way that rich people spend their money.  Most of these people have more money than they know what to do with..Why ?? Because we all gave it to them by buying their music and watching their movies.  What do you expect them to do with it? Pay the National debt? Take care of the worlds homeless and poor?  Many of them do donate time and money to all of this ( whether it be for PR purposes or pleasure).  If it makes them happy to spend outrageous amounts of money (that they happen to have in abundance anyways) on stupid useless items for their kids then that is ok.  At least they arent out spending that same money on drugs like many other celebrities have done.  They can sit on it or spend it .. It isnt their job to give every send away for every bleeding heart cause.  They earned their money doing a job that pays in excess  and they have a right to spend it however they want.

So when the child grows up, he/she will be expecting to have it all??  This is wrong with the generation today.  Parents give and give because either they can or maybe because  they are trying to make up for their childhood.  Either way I feel parents should give the necessities and any other should be given according to achievements made.  This allow the child to learn that anything they want to happen must be earned through hard work and patience.

I am a nanny to twin baby girls and someone in their family bought them Sophie la Giraffe.  $25 for a teething squeak toy is asinine, no matter how much money you have.

God bless these individuals for spending money which results in stimulating the economy, creating new jobs, and helping those who already have jobs( such as the designers) to keep their jobs. It is a wonderful cycle. Thank god there are still wealthy people left to stimulate the economy even after four years of Obama.

Ok, $130,000 sounds like alot of money to spend on your kid for Christmas, but it is their money, and if you figure what percentage that is of their income, I am pretty sure my Fiancee and I spent a larger percentage of our income on my son last year for Christmas!

And who cares if they but designer diapers, do you seriously think celebrities bought all of them? No way, I on occasion buy them for my son! It is adorable to see him running around with camo or flower butt!

You can trust the media's most Liberal biased network (MSN) to help Obama in his quest to demonize the wealthy and successful. Profit and success are now dirty words. Achieving the American dream is becoming a thing of the past. This election is about Obamarism versus Americanism.

Want to really see how the rich are cashing in and how you can too? G00GLE search the following term "FAST SLICK RICH'' and go to the top site. Then click on their LIFE INSURANCE page. You will see how the rich are making thousands every month. This is a trick that the wealthy have been doing for quite a while and now we can too! If you want a ton of extra cash, then you have to see how they are doing this.
