It is increasingly difficult to find a toy that can hold his interest for more than a week.
We bought a motorized bike for Little Edison two months ago. During the first week, he was extremely excited about it. He rode on the bike as soon as he reached home from school. He refused to come down even when the battery was flat.

But his excitement dies down very quickly. He still rides on the bike now but less frequent – only when he sees his little friend next-door cycling and he wants to join the fun.
Last week, we bought an inflatable pool for him. My FIL diligently pumped the pool, trimmed the grass in the garden and set-up the pool nicely for dear Edison. He was super excited and spent the whole afternoon in the pool. My FIL even said that he took his afternoon nap in the pool! When he was asleep, my FIL then carried him out of the pool.

Feedback from my MIL is that he even wants to eat in the pool. So, she feed him lunch inside the pool. But again, his excitement dies down within a week. Now, he doesn’t even bother to go near it.
Do you still buy toys for your preschoolers? Are these toys able to hold his / her interest for more than a week? I’d love to hear from you.
Update on 8/30: Thanks for all your comments and ideas, I really appreciate them.
