Toys, Toys, Toys

Gears! Gears! Gears!® Beginner's Building SetToday I switched out the kids toys.  I do that every 6 weeks.  And yes, it's a reminder on my astrid on my phone to do it.  Take that.

But this post isn't about being anal.

This BLOG is about being anal.

This post is about toys.

My kids BEG to play wii, or computer or watch TV, but they have a TON of really cool toys.

So, why don't they play with them?

Honestly, I'm not sure they know how cool they are.  I also worry they don't want to clean them up.  Because, with the wii or computer or TV, there's no cleaning up.

So, my goal for the next few days is to show them how COOL what they HAVE is.  Play with them for a bit, get them interested in the art of play for a bit longer. 

How do you remind your kids that their toys are cool?

I'm also weeding out toys that maybe really aren't cool anymore.  Ta-da.  Go me.


  1. you know, the only stuff Paige engages with regularly are books, art supplies, stuffed animals, and whatever the latest figurine type toy (littlest pet shop, zoobles, or now squinkies). We have on our list this break to clean out her room and get rid of some stuff. I love your rotating toy idea. Think it is great but have never formally done it...

  2. I really want to cleanse the playroom tomorrow while kids are at school. By cleansing I mean get rid of at least 230 toys. At least.
