Don't laugh this is serous. I was going through my spare bedroom after my daughter had moved out 3 years ago and noticed a huge trunk that when I opened it there was stuffed animals and toys of way to many. She had saved every toy she had ever gotten even MCDs. I then proceeded to bag them up for charity and she dropped in for a visit and I asked her what her plans for them were. She said that they were left there so she could save them for her child. Well her child is the three year old up there in the profile. I do not think he would like stuffed animals at his age. Matter of fact he has never saw these toys. Well she came back over that night with my grandson and showed him the toys. He just looked them over and asked what does this do. I told him nothing they are stuffed animals for your bed. He left and went into the tv room to watch tv. My daughter was upset thinking that she saved those toys for nothing. I felt bad for her but she did take them over to the goodwill. But my question is how many toys are too many? My grandson has three bikes at my home and two at his own home - outdoor toys that he has grown out of and doesn't play with. I am planning on having a grage sale and getting rid of all of it. hugs

i think you've have made a good suggestion that you want to give to charity, for there may be modern toys and if they're for sale may not have good value us before. if you give as gift to other mothers it'll be a blessing and you'll a good name for that. good luck for the final decision lies in your court.

We have decided to donate them to charity along with taking my grandson along with us so he knows the true meaning of receiving a gift that does not do fancy things like talk or walk or turn into another something out of this world. hugs
