A Hypothetical Situation, and an Informal Poll

Let's say that you have informed your child that you will be vacuuming the family room after dinner. The child has been given ample and REPEATED warning that all tiny little toys and pieces of toys should be picked up. The child has also been given plenty of time to accomplish this task, a place where the toys and pieces of toys can be placed, and a little guidance ("Check under the couch!")

What age must your child be before you are no longer duty-bound by the Cleaning Mama Code of Guilt to eviscerate your vacuum bag because you heard multiple Rattles of Plastic Death while vacuuming said family room?

I'm just asking.

This question has nothing to do with the Lego and Playmobil bits that may or may not be currently residing within the bowels of my Oreck.
