Toy Court
Posted 9:19 AM on Wed-10-Oct-2012
"Sooo," mused the fluffy white prosecutor bunny, "You admit that you bagged up your children's soft toys and just gave them away!?"
"Well, I-I-I", I stammered "I guess so, but I was trying to give them to a better home, where they would be played with more!"
"They already had a home, which they shared with you!" accused the fluffy white prosecutor bunny, " You EVICTED them, and then threw out the ones which you hadn't taken care of is this not true!!!?"
"No!" I cried (in a not too successful attempt to defend myself) " I threw them out because they were broken and therefore junk!"
BIG mistake!
There was a collective gasp of horror from the "jury of my peers", which was a collection of a variety of soft toys! They made such a noise that the big blue Judge bear had to shout "ORDER" several times before the court was silent.

It was at this point I woke up and realized that this silly dream had disturbed my sleeping brain because I foolishly decided to watch the "TOY STORY" movies the week that I sorted through my children's toys! alt

Seriously, I had guilt over giving away and throwing out the toys that were broken or that they no longer played with! alt

So, take it from me, do yourself a favour, and avoid the Toy Story movies if you are Spring Cleaning your kid's toy box, watch something else like Ice Age, Cars or dare I say it even Barnyard so that you too don't end up facing the Fluffy White Prosecutor Bunny in Toy Court! alt

Your post made me giggle. We are having a bit of a sort out here so it comes at a good time. I find all the neglected,out grown toys suddenly become the most favourite prescious thing when faced with the bin. I have figured that now DD likes money it is easier to suggest we put it on Trademe for her & she gets some pocket money for the holidays. I have also put my foot down & said we have to re-home alot to make room for Christmas stuff so thats helped things along a notch or two.
Thanks for the smile & sweet dreams!

Lol this is so appropriate, i hate culling my kids toys but if you keep them all eventually you run out of space to enjoy them!
