    Default What is the most common played with items in your house

    I was just thinking about what my kids play with most. It's not a expensive toy infact the the top 2 aren't even toys.

    They are
    1) coat hangers...
    They are used as
    bow and arrows
    Guns
    Guitars
    Construction
    Moblies
    Spaceman belts
    And a million other things

    2) pegs
    Construction constantly both as lego and to hold other things together
    Costumes
    Mummys hair accessories
    And so much more

    I am always amazed at the creativity and imagination.


    So what do your kids play with most?

    Brooms and cables of various sorts! I don't know why we bother buying real toys!

    Tupperware/plastic containers and Eco shopping bags. DD is 2.5, has been playing with the Tupperware since she could crawl - still gets them out, organises them, stacks them etc. she gets the shopping bags out and does all sorts of imaginary play with them.
    The dustpan and brush also get a workout at our place.
    IKEA octopus peg hanger thingy - I've never actually used it, DD nicked it as soon as I brought it home, I think it's in her toy drawers!
    Actual toys: toy food, kitchen, blocks, cash register, dolls house mainly. She's really into imaginary play as you can see.
    Will be interested to see what DS likes (he's 4 months so quite happy shoving his hands in his gob right now).

    DS plays with his hotwheels cars. He sleeps with them at night. Takes them to the shops. Has them in his pockets/bag. In addition to that he makes tunnels/bridges etc out of household items/recycling items.

    Lego/Duplo was used a bit until DD started crawling and putting everything in her mouth.
