Are there too many toys in the toy box, on the floor, and everywhere else? It's a good idea to put some away and rotate the active toy stock on a regular basis. Too many toys tends to reduce the child's desire to play with any particular ones and they can actually become bored more quickly then if they had less to play with. Putting away toys that they haven't shown much interest in lately, allows for other toys to come out and gives the child a fresh look at what they can play with. After a toy has been away in a cupboard for awhile, it can seem like a new toy to the child when it re-emerges.
