Toy Swap party?

Round up the friends.

Prepare your child.

Display the Goods.

Show and tell.

Have kids pick.

Pass out prizes.

I am thinking that the "my, me, mine" phase that a certain someone I know is in right now might hinder the success of a planned toy swap. But in theory, this could work.

What do you think? Any thoughts?

  1. ummm... what's it mean when we own just about every toy pictured above? Maybe it means we are in dire need of a swap!!??
    I would love to borrow out toys for awhile. That was something I was trying to start in Oakland, b/c my kids would play with something for awhile, then it would just sit in a bin. But if I put it away for a couple months, when I got it out again it was their new old favorite toy.
    Maybe I should use my toy experience to write reviews of toys?

    But, to your question, my kids are very into giving toys away if:
    1) it means they get new ones
    2) they pick the toys to give away, which unfortunately means they typically don't choose the toys I wanted to give away, and even sometimes choose my favorites!!
