Do you avoid toys that take "odd" size batteries?

Do you shy away from toys that need "hearing aid" batteries, or "N cells" or other types, not the usual AAA, AA, C or D cells? Just wondering if that figures into peoples buying choices. It does mine. I want "easily available" sizes, for the most part. Seems toys that take hearing aid type batteries "eat them" very fast too (and they are expensive). What do you think?

I avoid vibrators that aren't rechargeable/mains powered and take something other than AAs. AAA and watch battery powered vibes have been too weak for me. It is important that the type of battery be readily available.

I usually avoid all toys that take batteries, preferring rechargeable toys.

I pretty much only go for toys that are rechargeable or take AA or AAA. Anything other than that is a hassle for me.

No, if I like the toy enou it is worth the odd sized battery. Besides I live in a well populated retail store neighborhood so for me is not a difficulty. Also I get an employee discount of 10% at one store.

Mostly I don't buy toys that use the watch style batteries because I never am pleased with the vibrations from those -- usually bullets. But I don't shy away from any other kind of toy that uses any other battery, although I'll say, D batteries are expensive and a bitch to not have on hand when needed. Only one of my toys take D's and it's the Classix Rabbit Pearl which I can't use because of its size and it doesn't work anyways.

The most odd size I've had to deal with is a watch battery, so nope

The Hello Touch takes these annoying AAAA batteries which I have never seen sold anywhere. You can get six of them if you disassemble a 9V battery though.

I don't care to buy the watch battery toys either. However I have several flashlights that take the CR123 batteries so any toy that takes those are fine by me.

I have to wonder why that toy uses AAAA as opposed to AAA or AA. The batteries are housed on the wrist strap, where the size difference is irrelevant. I would never buy that toy just because of the odd batteries.

The batteries required does factor into my decision, more and more. I find myself gravitating toward toys that are rechargeable, or at least use "standard" batteries.
