Have you started putting away/giving away/throwing away/selling your LOs baby toys? Not talking about the bouncer, swing, etc, but rather the rattles, squeak toys, crinkly books, plastic keys, and such.
I haven't put away any of those things yet! I was just going through Aiden's toys this afternoon and set aside a lot of those types of things, but I can't bring myself to put them away for the next kid - what if he misses them?! I know, I'm being silly. lol.
Ronin still plays with all his toys. I use his teething keys in the car because then he will let go of my keys and he has a rattle in the car, he generally throws it straight away but it keeps him amused while I strap him in. I just have his toys in the toybox and rotate them around, often we can repurpose things for his current devlopment, I have some foam blocks which before were just quooshy play things now they build towers and I match the designs and we will work towards Ronin matching them idependantly.
He had a few things that dangle over your head when the baby in blob stage. I gave them to charity a couple of months ago. I've still got all his baby toys out but he never plays with them. A few I can sell but most I will just give away. He'd rather play with DS1's toy cars now

Yeah, I finally packed up last night those "blob" baby toys and the soft rattles he ignores. I also moved around his toys (put living room toys in his bedroom and vise versa), and he's playing with toys he's been ignoring! Plus I have room for a few new things he'll be getting for his birthday.
A lot of the toys my kids have were hand-me-downs that I didn't even necessarily want, they were just given to me. They play w/ a few, but I recently threw a lot away that were in not-so-great shape and boxed up a bunch more to give to charity. I just haven't gotten around to taking it yet. And I'm about to go through their toy box and get rid of more that they never play with!
