Tips from the Family Conservancy on preventing toy overload

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- During the holidays and the days after it seems like your house can become crowded with toys, toys and more toys. That leads parents to ask how many toys their kids really need.

Mary Williams from the Family Conservancy stopped by the FOX 4 studio Monday to share what parents can do to keep their kids and homes from getting overwhelmed with toys.

Mary's says:

  • Limit toys given at birthdays and holidays
  • Give gifts that kids can build on
  • Give the gift of experiences rather than toys
  • Rotate toys that are no longer played with
