I’m a single mum – I was slammed for spoiling my daughter, 4, by filling up THREE shopping trolleys with Christmas toys | The Sun

A SINGLE mum has left hundreds of parents appalled on social media after posting her full three carts of presents bought for her four-year-old daughter on Facebook.

Aussie mum Casey, from Queensland, bought the enormous selection of toys from Big W on Tuesday, spending more than £360 in the process.



Some of the gifts included an Action Sports trampoline for $139 Australian (£78.42), a Barbie Patio Set for $69 (£38.93), a Pokémon 46cm Sleeping Plush for $59 (£33.29), and Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Ultimate Ice Cream Truck Playset for $150 (£84.62).

On top of that, she also bought an Ooshies 2022 advent calendar for $35 (£19.75), a Polly Pocket Pajama Party Sleepover Adventure House Playset for $150 (£84.62), and a Pokemon Carry N Go Volcano Playset for $45 (£25.39).

Her haul came to a total of £365.02.

"Got little miss four's lay-by out, so excited to put them with the rest of the presents I have already got her," Casey wrote in her post.

But she quickly came under fire from other parents who called her out for "spoiling" her daughter too much.

More than 230 comments were made under the post, with many questioning the need for so many toys.

"If she was my niece or granddaughter she would be getting squat from me if I knew this is what they were getting,'' said one Facebook user.

A second woman wrote: "No child needs this let alone more than this it's a lil overwhelming for a child's life experiences or a holiday or get ahead on some bills a child has all it needs already."

While another mum added: "As someone who has raised four kids and spent lots of money over the years buying gifts I can tell you it is a regret having done so.

"None of the kids barely even remember a quarter of the presents they received nor do they care about the toys they got as kids.

"That money would have been much better off being invested so they could buy their first car or go on their first plane ride etc., especially as a single parent."

In the comments, Casey revealed she doesn’t own a car and had to take an Uber home from the store, along with the gigantic heap of toys.

While she has not disclosed how much was spent in total, last year the mum spent a shocking $1500 on her daughter's Christmas presents.

One user branded Casey’s post as "bragging" about what she bought.

Despite the heated reaction, Casey said she gives away toys that her daughter does not have any interest in anymore.

 "I also make her pick some toys out of the store before Christmas and give them to others who have nothing," she said.

It comes after a mum defended her £1k Christmas present haul for her daughter.

A’leasha, who is also from Queensland, Australia, says she doesn't mind showering her young tot with gifts as she doesn’t want her girl to think she’s on the "bad list".

She said she started buying presents for her children as early as June and added that she doesn't care if people judge her for buying so much for Christmas.

A’leasha added that she wants her daughter "spoiled" on Christmas Day.
