  • Well,dumping them out IS playing with them in a little one's eyes. They love the crash and boom!

  • Dumping them out is him playing with them. As well as him diging in and actually playing.

  • Yep! He does it all the time! I usually don't mind it. We have organizational cubes/shelves on the wall for most of his toys, but stuff like Legos, toy foods for his kitchen, blocks and other small stuff are in plastic storage containers with lids. If I have to make sure everything is picked up--like if we're having people over or I'm just tired of him dumping them, I put some of them away for a while. I like to rotate toys out sometimes too, so he doesn't get as bored with them. If you put something away for a couple weeks and bring it out, they usually act like it's new again.

  • My son is 13 months and yes, he's at that stage where he likes to dump things out and make a mess but no playing with them. I simply pick up his toys at the end with him, to show we can clean are messes after were done playing!

  • Oh, yes... and I don't mind... as long as he stays occupied it's fine... I just make him put them away when he's done- lol!
