We have reached a milstone in the Plain House. I do belive we are past the dire Choking Hazzard stage. Chip will be 2 in December, and while I’m not going to be foolhardy, I’m pretty sure that I can relax more about the all the teeny tiny things in our house.
For example, Mike and Robbie have this amazing Brio toolbox that has small plastic screws and other chokable pieces. I’ve always been on the alert for Chip with this toy. I haven’t wanted to put it away because the big boys love it so much, but it has always made me nervous.
But now I’m thinking Legos for Christmas! IMO, they are the holy grail of choking hazzards, but I think we’re ready.
But help me!
Here’s my question, though, how do you all deal with the millions of tiny pieces? It would be easiest to just get a huge box and dump them in there, but then how would the kids find anything? And when they wanted to play with them, they’d just dump the whole box onto the floor. And what about those kits where you make something specific? Don’t you want to keep the pieces for those separate?
