Swimming Through the Sea of Toys

Do you have children at home with toys everywhere?  With the prevalence of child-centered marketing, there is a plethora of toys and products out there in stores everywhere.  Just as adults are attracted to new products, our children are following in our footsteps.  The consumerist need to collect and have the latest and greatest toys and products add to the growing sea of stuff in our homes.  Despite giving into our children’s desires, it seems that they are bored more than ever.

What if we did something different?  What would happen if you decreased the amount of toys in your home by half?  What if you got rid of the toys all together?  Some parents have started to experiment with taking the toys away and have found that their children have become more creative and engaged in play than before.

Do you think this would have the same effect in your home?
