All we need is kitchen utensils, life-jackets and cardboard boxes! My boys have toys, but all my kitchen utensils disapear all the time! They can become whatever they want! They are horns (otherwise known as funnels), swords (otherwise known as pancake turners) or any other matter of their imagination! Give them a few hats and just watch them go! My third son was sitting and playing a whole game with the huge ladle! A cardboard box becomes a house, a springboard, or just a thing to climb on!
So, instead of toys, I guess I will just fill up the kitchen drawers as fast as they are emptied and forget about the boxes of toys in their room!
