I see "EDC" and I tend to think in terms of "Essential Daily Carry" and not "Every Day Carry". Is there a difference you say? I believe so. I have items I put in my pockets, I have more items in a go-bag. What I really have that the world would just feel wrong to me if I didn't have it with me is pretty minimal. I'm talking my wallet, my keys, a comb, a pen, and a pocket knife. I carry around more gadgets. I frequently even forget my phone at home on weekends. Life doesn't end for me if I do that. But I feel "wrong" without my wallet, keys, comb, pen, and knife.
So really, does EDC have to include toys, lock-picks, grappling hooks, and the like? I can't start a scientific random population poll on this, but I seem to think under 5% of the population would call that stuff something they would carry even sometimes.
