My children have thousands of toys. Each Christmas, birthday or generic holiday in between grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends load them up with the latest toy fad. One year our son ended up with two dancing Boohbah toys. Who in the world needs two of these creatures? Each year right after Thanksgiving we sit down as a family and decide what we must keep, what we can throw out and what is still okay enough for donation. I will admit I have one child who would toss it all except her dry erase board. The other is so wrapped up in his toys he wants to keep even the tiniest of broken pieces. One thing that we can come to a final agreement on is that there is someone who wants toys that won‘t have any this year and we have an abundance. The other thing we agree on is that the holiday and coming year will bring many new toys for them to enjoy.
The first step is typically the hardest ‐ examining each and every toy available. The goal here is to determine which toys are usually used by the kids so you can separate the frequently used ones (and store the others that aren‘t). Apart from being a keen observer during your child‘s playtime, it will help a lot if you talk to your kids. Ask them about their favorite toys and let them determine stuff that they‘re willing to let go or give away. Aside from being able to minimize the clutter, this can also be an exercise to teach the kids about the value of giving toys to others, as well as weighing which ones are more important and valuable.
Cars are frequently referred to as ”toys for the big boys”. A small child is very happy when his parents bought him car miniatures but as he reaches adulthood he wanted that miniature to be a real one. Having a car is like a dream come true for many adults. Though real cars are what big boys go after, some of them still love collecting toy cars and keeping them in their homes as decorations, keep sakes, or simply as toys they can still play with. Some people continue to have fun having collections of their plaything. They even spend more just to complete the collection because in one way or another they are happy with what they are buying, or they just love bringing out the kid in them.
While the kids‘ bedroom/quarters should be your main storage for keeping children‘s stuff, you can also keep some in the family room and the bathroom. However, make sure to minimize the clutter as much as possible. In bathrooms, for instance, designate a bucket that will be used mainly for storing toys your kids use during bath time. As for the family room, you can also keep some toys in a cabinet or invest in an affordable toy bin you can easily hide in the room.
As we grow old, our preferred toys or those that were given to us changes, sometimes they don‘t. It may vary depending on our age, gender, or our preference. Our parents provide us initially with kids‘ toys to capture our attention and obedience. As we progress, they offer us important things such as love, care, and trust. These things are much special than any material things that we would receive. The memories that kid‘s toys give us, however, will remain for such a long time when compared to any gifts that we would receive.
If you asked any child if his or her toys are important, the answer would be a resounding YES. We certainly thought so too when we were young enough to play with toys. When it‘s our turn to buy them for the little ones, some of us begin to question the relevance of toys in a child‘s life. We all have a favorite toy whose memories can still elicit a chuckle or two. Mine was a plastic food set with plates and cups and saucers. I used to play with my cousins, and we certainly had fun imagining those toy plates brimming with the sweets we craved back then.
