My daughter has a corner of our living room for some toys. I rotate through what is there. Other than that they are up in her bedroom.

He's young I would just keep his bedroom as a toy room. We just moved our dds into 1 room (they are 5&6). So one room would be a toy room. They never even play in there but I'm not moving all their stuff around again and they like sleeping in the same room and have less nightmares.

 I would just use a corner in the sitting room and that way you will be able to watch him

 Our playroom is the former office.

I would change which ever room is closest to the epicenter of the house. Otherwise you children will drag the toys to where ever everyone is anyway and you'll be constantly asking them not to or be lugging them around yourself.

Based on what you posted it sounds like the dining room is the best option.

I didn't vote - because you know your house way better than I do!! My vote is for a playroom - wherever it's located. I have a 15 month old. We spend the majority of our time downstairs and needed a place for him to play. We ended up turning our formal living room (which is the room all our guests walk into upon entering our house) into his play area. We have a couch on one side - and his play area on the other. It may seem unusual to some - but it is great! We love it, he loves it, and it keeps the toys from being spread out all over the house.

Dining room.  OUr children's bedroom is where their toys are.  Oldest is allowed to bring some into the living room or kitchen.  Before bed though they have to be taken back to his room.

I'd use the office.

Hmm...if it were me I'd put the playroom upstairs in the office and just keep maybe a small bin of toys downstairs. But at the same time it would depend as well on the layout. I don't know if I'm picturing it the same as it is in real life. :-)

What if you made the change anyways? It's not like it is permanent... Maybe try each room out for a few months before painting walls or anything though. But I would definitely consider the office before the dining room.
