these kids have so many toys and i hate to get rid of them because they play with all of them and a regular basis but the have to go!!! we have way to many 4 big boxes plus bigger toys that dont fit into the boxes
so how do you choose?
post and run TIA!
I get rid of things they haven't used, broken or have pieces missing. Then after that i go through and they watch me throw toys into a box and if they want it they say stop and dig it back out. When i clean out the toys i allow them to have 2 bucket each, no more.
I pick out anything broken or worn out first.
Next, cheap crap like party favor toys or dollar store toys go.
Next, anything cheap like McDonalds (or similar FF) toys go.
Then I narrow down the categories of toys. My son has cars, trains, Legos, and figurines. If anything falls out of those 4 categories (and wasn't a recent gift or super expensive), then it goes.
And for the toys that he does keep, I get stuff to organize it. All of his cars go in a holder. His trains are in bins. His Legos have Lego boxes shaped like Legos. Stuff like that. It helps with the clutter and the organization and clean up.
DD is 9months and DS just turned two but DS isnt at the point of understanding that we give to the less fortunate and i probably wont start that until this christmas for him and they play with all of the toys usually every week except the ones i have put in the closet because they have way to much but ill def start by gettin rid of things that have any missing peices and FF toys thanks
