I don't know about your house, but before Legos and Bionicles and Pet Shoppe, our main toy was Little People. For every gift giving holiday somebody was getting some new Little People set. We have the Garage, the Airport, the Pirate Ship, the Castle, the Zoo, two buses, the Farm, a hundred people/animals and the list goes on and on.
The big kids still play with the Castle and Pirate Ship some, but mostly, it is all just taking up space in Mac's closet.
Tonight after dinner I suggested that maybe we should box up all the Little People toys. Not sell them or get rid of them (saving them for grandkids), but just get them out of the way for now. And, somehow, everyone was playing with the whole town this evening (ok, Tavis is really off to the side reading)
