The more toys you have, the more toys there are the clean up. And for some reason, kids never find toy clean up as fun as toy playing.

One fine winter morning, I figured if I can’t beat ’em, why not make a funny video? And so, for one three or four hour period, I told my son that he didn’t have to clean up (and I wouldn’t help clean up) ANY toys. Here’s what happened!
