Quick Answers...

Whenever my 2-year-old son gets a new toy, he wants to sleep with it. Is this okay?

You can make part of the bedtime ritual allowing your child to choose two or three toys to take with him to sleep. By doing this, you limit the number of toys he takes with him but also avoid conflicts by giving him choices. Make sure any toy he takes with him is safe and age appropriate.
