Re: Non minimalism?
Over here it's activities. I've collected tons of toys and activities from my nanny days, and even more from being foster parents. Since most of this stuff was free or very cheap from garage sales I have a hard time parting with much. Huge tubs of legs, knex, wooden trains, marble runs, mr potato head, all sorts of things. And kits for making slime, creepy crawlers, bouncy balls, spin art, etc... My favorite is probably the shadow catcher. The quantities are enough that you can build something awesome from each set because I HATED running out of pieces when I was little. I could easily stock an entire classroom or daycare!
My own baby is just 1, so I can't say they are my kids' toys... they are mine!
