As you may know, Kalena’s birthday is coming up. On the 18th to be exact. And that brings up the issue of toys. She has plenty to play with, and while I make an effort to keep the toy buying to a minimum, I don’t think a birthday is the time to skip on the toys. Still, it’s getting to the point that I think I should be rotating through them, or making some of them “special toys” or SOMETHING. I’ve already put away toys that are too “young” for her, although we’ll be getting them back out soon for Will to play with, so that may be a lost cause.
So, lovely readers, tell me– what do you do when there are too many toys? Do you get rid of some? (She plays with everything.) Do you rotate through them, or bring some out only on special occasions? If you rotate them, how do you do it? Weekly? Randomly? Are they sorted by type or all mixed together? Tell me everything, I NEED to know! And if you have kids of multiple ages, how do you deal with younger toys vs older toys?
I hope you all spend as much time thinking about this crap as I do.
