In ours:

Breeds: socks. DH, DS, and now DD (4mths) seem incapable of keeping them on, and they get shed all over the house.

Disappears: Teaspoons and nail clippers. Loads of them!

Not sure of things that breed but things that disappear would be
The other sock in a pair
Nail clippers
and most of all lip balm. Last one found in the washing machine after a 60 deg wash!

dvds, felt tips with no lids, bits of paper, bits of wire


nail clippers, tweezers, bits of paper with important writing on.

Agree with tortoise re single socks. I wondered to myself the other day - "How is it possible to have TWENTY NINE odd socks? I only have two children..."

Disappears - toilet roll. Just how much do they use??

Carrier bags breed - I recycle but never run out!
