Re: Sharing vs. more toys

If you got two of the exact same thing, they would still fight over which one they wanted to play with. It's what kids that age do!

That said, we tend to have multiples of everything with variation. For instance, we have several different train engines and cars so that everyone can play trains at the same time. Now, the kids might fight over who gets to have whom, but they take turns and trade and can still play together.

There are some things that we have that are just for a specific kid. For instance we have color coded cereal bowls. There's no fighting over which color. You get the one you were assigned.
