  1. I recently read a mommy blog about Pley.com, which is a monthly subscription for Lego sets. I googled "Pley reviews" and there were not many, and were very mixed. Have any of you gotten this for your children? Thoughts? We are most interested in the big sets that would keep a lego maniac busy for a day or two. Is there a long wait time for these? Is it like Paperback Swap, when the object gets shipped when it's available (and it could be month and months??) We don't want to waste our money if we can't get the sets we'd like, in the general time frame that we'd want them in, which is summer. Thanks for your input!
  2. I just wanted to add a topic on toys that were a hit with your kids. We gave lots of toys to our kids but our 7 year old received a BB8 Star Wars remote control robot. She not only loved it, but it actually works great. I'm very impressed. Most remote control electronics don't do what they're advertised to do, but the Star Wars BB8 works! It's a small rolling robot from the movie. I would give it a 5 out of 5 stars! and my daughter loves it. Anyone else get a present that does what it is advertised to do? Or one that your kids just loved? Thanks, Jim :patriot:
  3. When I was little and we used to visit family/friends, I was always surprised to find a home with NO toys. For some strange reason, I thought it was normal that if you had children (even adult children) that there would be toys in the home. It wasn't that I was disappointed (though I probably was) but just that it wasn't "normal." :closedeyes: So now that my sons are 18 & 21 yo, I still have toys (best ones -legos, kapla blocks, stuff animals, etc) in my home and always hope that it will be so. :thumbup: What about you?
  4. I have found quite a few toys, games and puzzles that are now too young for the kids, but I'm hesitating on whether to rehome them. How do you handle this?
  5. Okay....I am trying to declutter and organize again and I'm trying to decide how many toys need to be left out for play? I have one 3yr old and my other children are older so their "toys" are in their rooms. It has turned out that he has toys set up all over the house (by my doing). Not sure if I should consolidate to one area or have is spaced out like I do now. I do rotate toys but how much should be left out? What works for your kids? Also, do you have a set school room? I have one for my older kids but try to keep little one out do to them trying to study with peace and quiet.....Would love to hear ideas!
  6. I know the usual toys - puzzles, blocks, finger paints, big crayons - problem is DD1 is not interested in these and continually raids DD6 toys while we are schooling (her room is next to school room). She especially likes the fiddly small Miss Pocket or beads that end up in her mouth and are a bit hazardous. I want to make her her own baskets with things she can do only during school hours that will keep her busy and not necessarily need a lot of input from me/us. Any ideas? And I was thinking of maybe investigating the Montessori options available since they are educational - anyone used any of these in an HS setting?
  7. My kids (6 and 8) just found a tote with their old blocks and Little People in it and have been busy with them for quite a while now. They were asking about their old toys and it got me thinking about everything that they had. I told them I had sold/given away many things, which of course they thought was horrible! We moved two years ago and many things were purged then, but we still have about a dozen totes of toys/clothes around the house. The first few years of my kids lives they were given SO much. We are blessed with many family and friends who love to give, but it was TOO much. With all the baby gear, furniture, TONS of clothes, toys, bigger toddler toys, outside toys... I literally could have jammed-packed a decent-sized bedroom wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with everything we had. I kept all of my favorite and sentimental items from their early years, but there was so much that I sold at yard sales, consignment shops, gave to friends, sent to Goodwill, and threw away broken/junky things. Baby/toddler stuff is really fun and cute, so I understand the draw to family members who want to buy things for the kids, but then I feel bad that thousnads of dollars were spent and there was no way we could keep most of it. Everything was used, but kids grow out of their little clothes and toys so fast the first few years of life. We did always encourage family to get less toys and maybe give a small amount to the kids college funds, but nobody was too thrilled about that plan.
  8. I'm thinking about getting my DD, 10, some of the Lego Harry Potter sets for Christmas. She loved a robotics camp she went to this summer that used Legos, and she loves the Harry Potter books right now. Reviews? Suggestions?
  9. Somehow over the last few years I have lost my oragnizing ability and my house has slowly gone from messy to complete chaos. :glare: My biggest area of concern as far as organzing is my little boy's room. Right now thier toys are tossed into 2 big rubbermaid tubs on the bottom of their closet. In order to play, they dump eveything out. So every time I walk in there alll I can see are toys. I am going to downsize the amount of toys, but we will still need a better storage solution. I was thinking of those white plastic things with the clear drawers? But I keep imagining them taking out the drawers and dumping the toys LOL. Would assorted size tubs and lids be better? use the 3 shelf storage bins and work on the dumping? Toss ALL the toys and just kick the kids outside to play? :lol: The school supplies are a mess too. We lost two bookshelves recently( don't ask lol) and now everything is pliled all over. I am going to replace one of the shelves, but I'd like to do something different for the kid's daily books like their math, spelling etc. Right now they are using milk crates which I don't like. I was thinking of either storing the books on the shelves, which we have done in the past, or buying some of those white three draw things I mentioned above. This way each kid could have their own drawer to gently and lovingly place their supplies. HA! Anyhoo, do you think this would work? Any other ideas? Next is my cleaning schedule or should I say lack of schedule. I used to once upon a time clean a room, top to bottom, a day so that by friday the whole house was clean and ready for the weekend. Now, with our schedule being nuts, we just don't clean. :tongue_smilie: Help me with a new routine! Do you clean in the morning before school? Set aside time after school? One big cleaning day? Many smaller days? Something different? Another area that needs work is day to day school, but I think that is a whole nother post. :blushing: Thanks!
