Feel free to follow this link
My friend Diane who writes the WHERE DO I GET STARTED? blog (listed on the left side of this page) turned me on to this.
You put a link to a great tip you know.
Well since I have a 9 year old son, action figures are big in this house.
The action figures are easy enough to keep track of, it's all of the accessories that come with them that create some chaos....
"Where's Boba Fett's jetpack?' "That blaster belongs to Han Solo not a Stormtrooper" "My Ninja Turtles swords are mixed in with the GI JOE's"
Basically all the accessories look the same to me. Unfortunately they are assigned to specific characters & my son insists that action figures can't borrow from each other. My 2nd problem with these pieces are that they easily fall off the characters (& some times end up in my central vac-oops!)
What does this Mom do to CURB THE CHAOS?
Ziploc Bags. Yes I buy every size the Dollarama has to offer. Storm Troopers & their blasters in one. Turtles & their weapons in another etc. Just make sure that the figures & accessories get put in the baggie & zipped up after the battles are over, & you're off to the races! If a jet pack falls off of Boba Fett or Darth Vader's cape has gotten removed, it stays safely zipped in the bag (& not in the pit of a toy bin).
Please let me know if this tip was useful to you
