The average ten-year-old has a collection of toys worth almost £7,000 - but plays with just £330 worth of them, it has been claimed.

A study quizzed 3,000 parents about their children's toys and found the typical one owns 238, but play with just 12 'favourites' on a daily basis.

This means kids are enjoying just five per cent of their toys -- and mom and dad have wasted a fortune on noisy bits of plastic.

It was also found parents think their children end up picking the same toys day in and day out because they have too many to choose from.

The poll also revealed 35% of construction toys such as Lego rarely get used… unless you include when Dad plays with it on his own.

This baby was born on a date to remember after arriving early on the tenth day, of the tenth month in the tenth year of the millennium… and at 10.10am and 10 seconds.

Little Niamh Bond couldn't wait any longer and was born eight weeks premature on what some have hailed as the luckiest day of the century.

The tiny tot weighed just 3lb 7oz when she was delivered at Good Hope Hospital, after her mom Keelie, 20, was rushed in on Saturday evening.

Niamh had not been due for another eight weeks -- but obviously thought it would be better to have a birthday no-one has an excuse for forgetting.

Proud Mum Keelie Hearne said she couldn't believe it when she realised the timing and was just glad her partner Dean Bond was there… yes, he arrived 10 minutes before Niamh was born.
