I need to find a way to temporarily secure little plastic toys to the inside lid of a wooden box. I was thinking hot glue but my soon-to-be-5-year-old must be able to detach them cleanly without breaking them. Or maybe there is a better method than glue?

You can help me, I know it...my trust in the collective resourcefulness here is absolute! :jol:

Museum wax, magnetic material.
You need to keep in mind that little kids tend to put stuff into their mouths, and potentially chew/and or swallow them.

I agree with Fontgeek, I use Museum Putty all the time. Probably the same as the Museum Wax. I use it to hang greeting cards on my mantle and to stabilize things in my curio cabinet. What's great is that you can re-use it! Of course with a tot, you'll need to see if it's non-toxic. I couldn't be sure.

Here in Pittsburgh I get it at Pat Catan's. It's a craft store, kinda like Michael's. Michael's may have it. Also I've seen it on Amazon. The putty comes on a flat sheet about 3X6 or so. You pinch off the amount you need.
