Do it a bit at a time or she might notice. My ds is like this and we would end up throwing nothing away. I would not involve her myself!

Could you hide the ones for a while and see if she misses them? If she doesn't, throw them away in a couple of weeks time?

That shouls read something like ...hide the ones you want to throw out...' !!!

I'd throw out the ones you think she won't notice perhaps just start at one at a time, see hwo it goes, you can't keep everything forever. I often chuck things out and dd never notices.

I get rid of broken ones without saying anything, but if there are toys that just aren't being played with or we have a million similar things, I put them in black bags for a couple of weeks and see if they notice they are missing. If they don't get mentioned then they get charity shopped.
