How Many Toys Do Your Children Need?

According to all almost everyone I interviewed for this BBC feature – children don’t need many toys at all. OK, this message won’t make me popular with children, grandparents or Toys R Us at Christmas… just call me Scrooge.

Are children given too many toys?

If you’ve got any good photos of your kids ‘colonizing’ your stuff into inventive toys, then do post them on Twitter to #whatmychildmade and the BBC might publish them.

  1. But to answer your question yes.

  2. My kids ignored all their toys today in order to make robot costumes out of a play chair. Ooh! I might have even taken a picture! But one of them is naked (except for chair pieces) so I probably won’t post it…

  3. We have a box under the stairs and only so many toys are out at once. Means that the kids get to remember or rediscover them.
    On the ‘colonizing’ front an egg box becomes a plane or bus for little people toys 🙂
