a time to reapThat's Wednesdays for me right now, I start off dragging the swiffer over a shelf or two and end up draining the batteries in Damian's camera wiggling away at macro distance (30cm!) while trying to angle my broken lamp for adequate lighting. The toys are nervous, they can tell it's a time to reap, and they think that if I get distracted enough I'll forget to take them to Oxfam.

Re: NOOOOOO!
hmmm, well I haven't yet. Except for the creepy owl with no eyes, that bastard's gone. Going. Will be gone at the weekend.

I lack resolve.

No no no -it's just not right. More photos -lots more photos until we're sick of seeing them and then they can go on e-bay where some Jeremy Dennis collector will pay hundreds of pounds for them and lovingly keep care of them for us all.

Jeremy Dennis collector?
Well, we are relatively rare. According to http://wwww.yournotme.com

"There are probably more people killed in yoghurt, cream, marshmallow and fluffy thing accidents each year then there are of you."

Time to run and hide.

So sad! :-(

How could you throw away the opportunity for a serial of psychological-toy-torture??? ;-p

A very evil Toy Story. ;-)

Re: (sob)
we-ell, I do have quite a lot of evil toys. I mean, do I really need two of the (obviously destined for me) tub'o'dinosaurs?

Thinking...
You really should have gone the route of Lego ... at least then your instincts for both destruction and creation could be well assuaged without permanent losses to your toy population. ;-)

I saw this amazing item in a toyshop
... a lego coffee table. It had a removable lego plate lid and storage space underneath it. Coffee tables normally don't interest me, but this one rocked. And it would have solved all my lego storage problems in one swell foop.

Unfortunately, it was shop fittings.

Re: I saw this amazing item in a toyshop
That's when you masquerade as a commercial entity to get one of those! :-)

As for me, after 3 whole baskets full of Lego, I've not come up with a better solution. :-)

statement of intent re. the sparkly dinosaur
I'm not going to get rid of it. It just had the most pathetic eyes when I was casting round for something to aim the gun at.

Why don't you pack some away in a box and then open it up in a few years time? It'll be like getting a whole lot of new toys. I'll look after a box for you for a while if you want, I suddenly have acres of space going spare.

Jeremy's theory of acquisition states
that things that go into storage seldom go out.

I also have something of a ?moral objection to storage -- I mean, either I need it out there where I can get at it or I don't need it.

I could make you up a box anyway, though. I already have one gift for you, I could make it several (:D

"We said it'd happen, we feared the worst; the Fullgy Bulgy House has burst"
You realise, of course, one day you will put your shoulder to the
thronging mass of toys in the living room, trying to beat a path
to the TV or the drawing board, and the internal pressure of
compressed plastic will be more than the fabric of house and home
can withstand and the house will burst, spilling multicoloured
orphans over a 200-yard radius?

have a toy race and box the stragglers...

Or you could indulge in virtual monsters instead of plastic ones:
