I am in a constant state of wonder at just how many toys my boys have and how often they use them. I remember being partial to a few toys as a child and playing with them over and over again. Not my boys. They seem to enjoy getting all of theirs out from their toy storage and playing with each and every one of them, almost every day. Trucks, balls and trains remain the favorites but the others get used frequently as well. So, when do I get rid of ones that I assume are too “young” for them? Every time I get some of them set aside, the boys seem to hunt them down, and return them to the play area. At this rate, they’ll be playing with their Cook and Play Potsy until they are 10! I realize that under the cover of darkness I could remove said toys and find them a better home but then I wonder if many of these toys should be played with for many years to come. I envy those people with a large and spacious playroom, but at the same time I am glad that our toys are segregated and confined to a corner of our living room. With more space available, I fear we would accumulate even more toys!
