No more weekly small toy purchase for us. They are not worthwhile and are adding more junk into an already cluttered lifestyle. Instead, the toys of old are making an appearance once again. They are being reused, reloved and reinvented.
Just because something is from the 1970’s, 1980’s or 1990’s doesn’t mean a child of the 00’s or 10’s won’t play with them. Tell your kids they are Daddy’s or Mummy’s toys. They will think they have won the lottery. “I can play with your toys Daddy?”. Yes you can and I can save money and put it towards the future or an experience.
As they get to reuse the toys they get to express their creativity and imagination. Plus those toys become even more worthwhile and valuable in your life. They are no longer dust gathering worthless items. They give meaning and purpose to being in your life and your childrens.
Of course, any that are no longer worthwhile to you should go straight to charity, the recycling center or even a local organisation or Church.
