I wash rocks, toy cars, action figures, and Legos ALL THE TIME! I can check pockets before it goes in and I will still come out with at least one of the above by the time it comes out. And just to set your mind at ease- you can wash a DS game at least 20 times and it will still work. I know nothing else. I can sit down and play dolls with my niece and I can play tea party with her too (so can my boys) but at the end of the day I am a mom of boys. So pockets full of treasures is my world. And the imagination that comes with them. And I am grateful for them. I am the mom of boys.
