There really isn't a list of good toys vs bad toys you should or shouldn't have, so how do you decide what to keep or not keep when it comes to toys? In today's episode, I discuss whether toys are good or bad and share three principles for decluttering toys.
Toys aren't inherently good or bad, which means that as a mom you are not judged or evaluated based on the kinds of toys you get your kids. I think it's changing – or maybe it's just that I have changed so much and don't beleive this any more but a lot of moms feel like their kids need or should have certain kinds of toys in order to have a good childhood.
It's just not true. There aren't good toys versus bad toys that fit for every family.
And while a lot of toys out there really are largely speaking a “one and done” type of toy, there are some toys that kids just love. That's okay. You really can't know what they'll be, so just try it out.
But the BIG key here is that you need to have an amount of toys that fits within your own clutter threshold, and fits into the space you have.
