When you become parents, you learn quick to avoid battery operated toys. But in a wireless world, it can be hard to avoid. While Erin's question is specific to swings, we're curious how you've dealt with the battery issue in general. Are rechargeables really a good option?
Has anyone figured out how to power all those battery-sucking swings and other toys more efficiently? Can they be converted to plugs? Has anyone tried the adapter shells that use rechargeable AA batteries? Other solutions to keep all those batteries out of the landfill (not to mention the cost)?
