There’s nothing magical about the number 20, just consider the principle that less is more. Perhaps not when it comes to stuffed animals, educational toys, or dolls. You decide.
Studies have shown kids become more creative with fewer toys. And also, they play longer with sustained attention. Fewer toys appear to be associated with healthier overall play.

I have to disagree with this, I had a large amount of toys as a kid, including electronics. I played for hours and hours in my room or out in the garden. I remember having such adventures with them. Both parents working full time and no siblings. What else was I going to do 😂🤷🏼♀️
Why is it a thing in America to have playrooms you can literally leave the toys in the actual room? Having a second room with toys just leads to more Materialismus 🙄
We have way way more than 20 but I have them organized in Rubbermaid boxes and rotate through them. Only having about 5 boxes available for play at a time. When the kids outgrow them I donate the entire box so that someone else can enjoy the system.
Thank you for posting this! I often feel that more toys is unnecessary, but then feel guilty when I see friend’s homes with entire playrooms packed with stuff. That’s my personal worst nightmare 😂
As a former kid that loved toys, I had way more than 20 and was very creative and happy and loved them all lol
I played with screws and marbles
20?! Way to set the standard America
