What one item doesn't typically make it onto Christmas lists but is sorely missed on Christmas morning if it's forgotten?
If you guessed batteries, you're right.
How often have you had a disappointed child who can't play with a new toy because there are no working batteries in the house? First-time parents usually make that mistake once. Then, every year thereafter, batteries end up on the top of the holiday shopping list - underlined, highlighted and circled.
Luckily, P&G's new e-store sells value packs of batteries that will help meet your battery needs.
They have the Duracell AA value pack, which contains 28 batteries - more than enough to keep your children's toys going until the lights, beeping and other obnoxious noises wear on your nerves in 50 different ways. (Between you and me, having strong, long-lived batteries in your kids toys can be a mixed blessing. My husband and I have been known to tell the kids a certain toy is "broken" as soon as the batteries wear out. Unfortunately, this can take a long time with some batteries!)
It makes sense to have a hefty supply of AA batteries in the house, but don't forget the Duracell AAA value pack, which also contains 28 batteries. At some point, your child will end up with an odd toy that calls for a smaller battery. As any parent knows, it's best to have both types of batteries on hand. Nobody wants a Christmas morning meltdown.
In a perfect world, every gift would come with the required batteries. But, in our world, we have to do the prep work, 'cause we know Grandma or Aunt Margaret is going to show up with an awesome toy that needs a few AAs to make it work. It pays to have the most common battery sizes on hand. No one wants to run to the local convenience store and pay a king's ransom for a small pack of old batteries.
