Doth your playroom runneth over?
You are not alone if you find yourself suffering the post holiday buried in toys syndrome.
Take advantage of this time to do some decluttering and organizing of your kiddos toys.
Make room for the newly acquired toys by playing a game of lining up and counting all of the new toys. Next have your child match each new toy up with one that is no longer being played with. An excellent opportunity for teaching your children a lesson in sharing exists here. Explain how happy some other children will be to receive the toys and how they will be new toys for the other children to play with.
If resistance is encountered, ask your child to think about the last time a particular toy was played with, and if it’s been over six months, “wouldn’t it be nice to let another child play with it?”
There are charities all across the country that collect toys for various organizations. Almost everyday Totally Kids fun furniture and toys receives new and gently used toys donated for Twin Cities families affected by Autism. If you are in the Minneapolis St. Paul area please drop off any toys that you can spare at Totally Kids fun furniture & toys.
We would like to express gratitude to all of those who have so generously donated toys over the last few years. Thank you!

Can you imagine telling your child to build his own ride-on toy, stool, or bookcase? With Tsuchinoco’s innovative collection of playful cardboard toys and furniture that is now possible. Tsuchinoco is based in Japan where they have created several fantastic designs from strong pieces of corrugated cardboard that easily fit together like puzzle pieces to build functional seating, storage and toys.
How about a cardboard house?
Or a cardboard train?
For functionality, there is even a bookcase that is very green?
Tsuchinoco boasts that the cardboard they use is stronger than that of typical corrugated cardboard. It is a fiber board called HIPLE-ACE. Its benefit is in its strength while also is lightweight compared to wood. With this cardboard little kids can easily move the pieces around. While being 100% recyclable, what a responsible and wise environmental investment compared to most other materials used today.
If you have a “yen” for something like this to encouraging engineering for young minds, take a look at their website for many other toys and furniture.
