What's up with that? My daughter's nanna is always fussing at me that I ought to make my little girl keep her toys in her bedroom and play there, but I've never understood that. I often felt shuffled out of the way as a kid, and I want my daughter to share our living space and interact with me and the rest of the family while she plays. It sometimes makes for a lot of clutter and mess in our small house, but I catch a lot of great play moments that I feel I would miss if my daughter were tucked away in her room with her toys. I'll have years to keep a neat house after she grows up. I saw in the question about the block maze in the living room that some people believe all toys should be in the bedroom. I'm not trying to argue; I'm actually curious to know the rationale behind that rule.

Bedroom or play room ( some people use a extra bedroom for a play room) is for toys. At least that is the way I had it. No reason to have the whole house a mess. As I see it. I like order in my house. I do not like to trip over toys and hurt myself. That was just the way I was. Everybody is different. Not every one has the same rules for their house. Just how it is in this world. You want a cluttered living room. I don't.
