Look, we've read "The Nanny Diaries." We know how it goes.
You pay $30,000 for the right starch-collared, Manhattan preschool. A grand for the Bugaboo stroller. And $500 monthly for the mice to feed your pet bald eagle.
This is how New York City came to top Bundle.com's list of the cities with the most spoiled children in America. Also -- we suspect -- the cost of living, the great unequalizer.
The website built its rankings based on "spending by households with children at stores that sell toys, clothing and other services for tots, kids, and teens" over the last three years. And considering that New York is home to the store that sells this $2,500 Etch-a-Sketch and $25,000 Barbie foosball table, we can see how even just a couple of crazy, high-end purchases can tilt the balance in the city's favor.
(Though Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is still the place where that kid once bought Richard Pryor for $10,000 -- and it's nowhere to be found on this list.)
