Toys story 3, my kids don't play with their toys....


Very weird but my kids don 't play with toys that much...So the DI is getting a lot of toys and....


We saw Toys story 3..How appropriate!
Great show, even hubby liked it!


Do your kids play with their toys?
Mine would rather play with their friends outside.
Happy week end!

mine would rather play with stuff found around the house, say, an old pot. he does have toys, but he ignores them. he even ignores his coloring book!

Tiffany said...

I think that's great that your children would rather be outside playing with friends rather than inside with their toys. They're using their imaginations! Glad you liked Toy Story 3! Have a great weekend.

My oldest never did play with toys. Even though hotwheel cars are his favorite he would rather admire them then play with them.

Now my baby boy is a totally different story. He loves to play with his toys, your toys, anyones toys where ever when ever. Crashing cars, making cho cho sounds with trains, flying airplanes as high as his little hands will reach.

Kiddos gotta love 'em!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I play with my kids' toys!!
I love The Littlest Pet Shop stuff and Mario Cart Racing on Nintendo, LOL!

Rambling Housewife said...

My kids don't play with their toys either!! So frustrating. My little girl would rather be playing with "kids":)

Victoria said...

So true about toys, I found when my boys were little they were the happiest when they dragged all my pots and pans out of the cupboard to bang on, jumped on my bed or played with my car keys. They were very active and loved skateboards, rollerblades and bikes much more than toys.

I think it's great that your kids would rather play outside or be with friends!

My kids do play with their toys, and as they get older their imagination gets better. We loved Toy Story 1, 2, and 3.
Thank you for stopping by my blog.

my kids are like me-they will go thru moods where they dont want to even see any kids and other times they cant get enough. but thank you for dropping off at di-im sure we picked up some of your kids stuff sometimes!

Snappy Di said...

As children my siblings and I played with toys sometimes when we were snowed in due to bad weather, but for the most part we played outside with friends. My grandchildren are the same way. I think it's healthier for kids to connect with other people rather than just things.

I have a 17 year old ( therefore his current "toys" are tres $$$) but he won't part with his childhood toys. We think we have finally convinced him that with one year to go before he leaves for college, it's time!

Kathleen B. said...

Nope, my children will rarely play with their toys. New toys are good for a day's worth of entertainment and then it is off to hover over and pester mommy again. My youngest is the exception, he will sit for hours and play with his cars each day. The movie made me bawl like a baby by the way!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I am now returning the favor.

My kids really aren't "toy" kids either. They love to read, and do crafts, anything artistic, or be outside.

I haven't seen the new Toy Story but I would love to take my kids to see it!

Thank you for following! I am dropping by to say hello and follow back. :)

Wanna see Toy Story so much! My 3 year old doesn't play with any toys. She rather read, put together puzzles and do crafts. My son barely plays with toys. He rather be playing board games with me, playing hide n seek, tag or bugging his sister lol. Have a great weekend!

Deanna said...

Dear Frenchy,
My 3 children are grown with children. I babysit my 3 year old Granddaughter and yes she plays with alot of different toys and wants me to make them talk!

I saved some of my children's toys for keepsakes. I have kept all of my childhood dolls.

The Fischer Price Dollhouse of my 30 year old daughter's is now being played with by this 3 year old.

Rotating toys can be a blessing...take and put some of the toys away and then bring them back out from time to time.

God bless you as a young wife, momma and homemaker!

Mine being almost-2 and almost-4 do play with their toys, but more often they prefer to play with the boxes the toys came in. Silly kids! :) My daughter's favorite toy is her baby doll and it's accessories. My son's favorite toy is ... the food out of my pantry. *sigh* He enjoys emptying my pantry so much, and thinks he's so helpful! Silly sweet babe! ;)

I have not seen Toy Story 3 yet. In fact I don't know if I've even seen #2 yet... hmmm...

Thanks for visiting my blog from New Friend Friday! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today (http://mehimandthecats.blogspot.com/)

My bf's daughter is 9 and doesn't really play with toys anymore. She is addicted to the tv though! Lately she has been making bracelets with those teeny tiny beads. So at least that is better than just sitting around watching tv. I wish she would go play outside though!

We just saw Toy Story this afternoon! We loved it! My daughter will do both - if it's nice out she wants to be outside and if we are inside she will find something to entertain herself.

Thanks for following! Following you back....and yes, my kids love their toys. I can't even sell them at garage sales or give the to the Salvation Army...at least not without a TON of convincing.

CHERI said...

My grandson (7) doesn't play with his toys that much either. I was beginning to think he was strange until I read your post! He does LOVE to play board games and card games. In my opinion he watches too much TV and videos. I am a retired teacher and the research has taught us that the more kids watch TV the less they read and therefore don't do as well as their non-TV (or little TV) counterparts do in school. My opinion is that that kids these days have lost their imagination due to toys with batteries that do everything or TV or video games that also rob their creativity. Of course, if your kids are playing outside that is wonderful! Lots of exercise and chances to explore and develop their curiosity and therefore their creativity. Enjoy your blog...thanks for being a follower on mine. Please come visit often. I'm still working on it!

I'm in the process of another playroom cleanout. My kids don't play with their toys. Especially my 6 year old son. He does seem to want everything he sees on tv or that his friends have. Recently, as soon as he starts "I want..." I answer no without even listening to the rest.

My kids are always playing and they love their toys... It is a good thing that they play together and they share time with each others toys... I hope they do it for long!! Even if I´m always saying "please collect your toys" ;)
