Toys are in the bedroom although a select few are allowed to come into the living area but only if they are being used and only if they find their way back to the bedroom when they are finished being used. I'm pedantic about clutter and really start to lose my sh1t if it looks like a toy massacre on the living room floor.

YES! And I can't stand it. She has the biggest most awesome playroom you've ever seen with absolutely everything yet she still chooses to mess my lounge room 😣 were moving on Monday so I'm thinking stricter rules ahead ☺️

Lounge room, living room, his bedroom. Ds's toys have taken over the whole house. I tidy it all up before bed each night so at least come morning its neat.

We have a formal lounge (carpet, aka the grown ups lounge), and the living area/kitchen which is the kids lounge. We dont have a dining table so their toys are there. They don't have many though, so its not too bad and what is there gets packed into the toy box. I don't allow toys to be kept in bedrooms as they stay up and play when they are supposed to be sleeping. The kids are pretty good and generally keep all the toys confined to the one area, and because there isn't much there even when everything is pulled out it doesn't really get messy.

Ours were in our lounge room but started taking over the house. So we bought a bigger house lol. The family room is our more casual room and this is where we spend our time during the day so this is where the toys are, then the lounge room is where we go at night and we take a stack of books in to read to calm down, but no toys.

Yes, there are always toys in our living area. We live in a small house with one open living/dining area.
We do however store almost all of DS's toys in his room in large baskets. There is very little room to play in his room, so he brings the toys out into the living area.
Everything is packed away at night.

Yes, but a limited number. Everything has its place.
We have a small bookshelf in the loungeroom that has a few toys on it (currently a tub with letters that sings, a bag of rings that connect together, a little batman toy, a magnetic fishing game, a stacking tower and a puzzle). These get put away on the shelf after use.
We also have an adult keyboard that DD loves to play, and other musical instruments stored in its stool.
Doll's house is in the lounge room since it won't fit anywhere else, and a little ride on thing lives next to the bookshelf.
The rest of the hosue is similar...everything has its place.
DD has a table in the dining room, and art supplies from the cupboard/shelf get used there. She has a little book shelf that she can access, and a toy kitchen.
In her room she has a small shelf with her shoes on the bottom, money box & hair brush on the top, and a few stuffed toys in the middle. Everything else is kept out of her reach, in cupboards.
Even with the limited amount accessible, it all gets spread around. WOuld drive me nuts if everything were in our living space!

They used to be until about 2/3 weeks ago when we finally bought those cube storage thingys and moved them to ds1's room!
Ahh the peace I feel in my lounge room now is amazing!
There are still a few bigger items in the lounge like jumperoo and walker etc but the smaller 1000 matchbox cars etc are all in their boxes.
