Princess Cinderella in her shoe box house, sitting on her duct tape couch. The serving fork? That's Prince Charming!
We have three sets of toys here:
1. Fisher Price Little People figurines and houses
2. Baby dolls and clothes (this includes their American Girl dolls as well)
3. Dress up clothes and shoes
With a few odds and ends here and there (such as two princess dolls, and maybe some puzzles...) that's pretty much it.
I have found that the less my girls have to play with, the more they play with what they do have. Such as boxes, duct and tape, and forks. :)
I have a few specifications for the toys I buy our girls as well. All flexible of course, but over all it would seem that the toys that adhere to these following points are the ones that stick around and get played with the most.
1. No batteries required.
2.No flashing lights, annoying songs, or repetitive sounds. (This rule founded by Daddy and strictly enforced by him as well. He doesn't like annoying sounds! Ha ha!)
3. No small pieces. (Huge piles of Polly Pocket shoes, dresses and accessories are sure to make me break out in hives.)
How do you handle toys in your home?
