Standing the test of time

August 10, 2012

Trying to clear out and pare down toys after a 7 year old sons birthday hoarde, it was interesting the toys that have stood the test of time and were still too treasured and played with to be packed away…

Spring cleaning fairies…

out                                                              in

cuddly dolls                                            digit dolls, sleepy dolly(a knot doll he’s had since birth) and a doll to dress

blocks with holes and screws              plain blocks and natural wood blocks

wooden and felt play food                   kitchen utensils,  teaset and rock collection

felt playscenes                                      playsilks and cotton cloths

wooden cars, trucks and planes        paper planes and silk parachute man

wooden thomas trains                         wooden “real” trains and track (not thomas -too babyish)

dress ups, hats, belts, scarves, playsilks, playcloths

knitted and felt animals

Lego has invaded in a big way, but I was curious to see he still wanted his plain wood blocks, but not the screw together kind.  He was more than happy to get rid of any TV licenced items that have wormed their way into our toys as they have been suddenly deemed “babyish” by the seven year old, so anything Thomas, Bob the builder and even Charlie and Lola had to go.
