Here is the album -

 

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=41756&id=515969979&l=74c62a35c8

 

This is all of their toys, with the exception of the play kitchen they got for christmas- which I cannot fit in the room, because it is wall to wall. 

 

Now I realize you guys don't know what gets played with and what doesn't- so I am trying to get rid of everything that doesn't get played with and I tagged in the pictures things that are gone. 

 

Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.  Thank you!

Just from looking at the photos, I wonder if there's too much stuff in that room?  To me, it looks like most stuff is organized fairly well, but there are a few shelves with random stuff on them.  Have you thought about keeping less in the actual play area and rotating toys in and out, to make them new and interesting again to the kids?

 

Is there a specific issue/problem that you need help with?

Looks like you got a lot of stuff out all ready! Great job! Do you want the play kitchen in there or near your real kitchen?

I just saw the pics you added yesterday.  Nicely done.  I know I would enjoy playing in that room.  biggrinbounce.gif

You were right, the organization options had pretty much been exhausted, and it was just a matter of too much stuff.  I can't rotate toys because there is no other place in the apartment for them! Sorry I didn't respond sooner.. I was going crazy getting rid of stuff!

Thank you! I felt a little sick to my stomach getting rid of all those toys, worrying the kids would be mad or sad.  They didn't even notice and that was a huge huge relief!  They love the new room.  I guess the play kitchen is staying near the real kitchen.  My 4 year old said that's where she wants to play with it : )
