A survey of 1,000 people found that old toys were the things we find it hardest to trow away thanks to our emotional connection with them.

While people also find it hard to throw away clothes that no longer fit family photos and love letters, it's toys which take up the most space.

The most commonly hoarded toys are said to be Scalextric tracks, Rubiks cubes, Star Wars collectables, Micro Machines, Barbie and Pokemon cards.

So what have you got hidden away in your house? Let us know in the comments.

Moms - who may be watching too much of the gardening show aimed at toddlers - have taken to internet discussion boards describing exactly what they'd like to do with his marrow.

Discussions about the unlikely sex icon on Netmums.com include the comments "He could have his devious way with me 'round back o’t’compostarium’ any day" and "He looks like he might be a bit dirty – and I’m not talking the soil type."

Other randy moms added, "How many of you ladies would be willing to cuddle his courgette?" and "He can bed me down for the night anytime."

A recent survey of parents found that they imposing 83 'junior injunctions' each year by asking their children to keep secrets… often from the other parent.

And in order to keep their secrecy parents are willing to spend £27 each week on hush money and treats - ranging from new clothes to junk food.

The most common secret that parents ask kids to keep is a surprise gift for someone else, followed by their real age in order to pay a reduced price and being allowed to stay up beyond bedtime.

Slightly more worryingly five per cent of British parents were found to have asked their children to keep a secret when they had broken the law.
