Kid's Toys are Junk

On a completely different note...

When did nearly all children's toys become cheap junk? I have nothing against plastic toys, but I'd like to buy something that doesn't look like it's going to fall apart in a month, without spending an arm and a leg on it.

Inspired by my regular babysitter's (15-year-old) talky-keyboard-letters toy, I went to Toys R Us the other day, looking for a fun noisy electronic toy and/or a pull-up/walking toy. I didn't see anything I was willing to spend my money on.

(I really like this handcrafted wagon full of blocks, but that's in the "arm and a leg" category. I'd call it an heirloom-quality toy.)
