So here's one of the best unexpected results from cutting cable, obviously you have your monthly savings but if your little ones watch Netflix or DVD's or PBS on local channels they don't see COMMERCIALS. Bigger kids can read and talk to their friends about the latest and greatest toys and gadgets they want for Christmas but little kids don't know what's out there for sale unless they are bombarded with commercials that tell them they need the newest leappad or motorized barbie jeep. My daughter is 5 and sees almost no commericials, she has no idea about every new fun toy and gadget unless a friend has one or we see something shopping. It makes a huge difference, she's not constantly asking me for this toy or that toy, she is happy with most everything she gets even if it's not the newest fad on the market, I could buy something used or from a garage sale and she wouldn't care or notice the difference, and I may buy her some new popular toy but I don't feel like I have to.
