If you are a parent, you know that toy storage and organization can be a hassle.
Every relative and friend buys your baby toys, so that you then have to try to come up with a place to store all of them. The thought is always nice, but the aftermath is not.
If you would like to curb the clutter of baby toys in your home, here are a couple toy storage ideas to get you started.
Chests, Boxes, and Bins
Toy chests, boxes, and bins have been around for years, and for good reason, they are extremely effective. Toy chests and boxes and bins are nice because most of them come with lids.
Lids help hid the toy clutter while still letting you keep the toys in the room that the baby or kids play in the most.
You can even find toy chests that are handmade or look like pieces of furniture so no one will ever know that you are hoarding a huge amount of toys.
The one downfall with this type of storage is that since it is closed storage, the kids do not have easy access to see what toys they have and most of the time there is no organization within the toy chest, toys are just thrown in.
With storage bins and toy chests, you also need to make sure the lid is not very heavy, or has a safety close latch so that there are never any pinched fingers.
Toy Storage Towers
New to the market are toy storage towers. These towers are usually made out of wood or plastic and are essentially rungs going up like a ladder with plastic bins resting on the rungs.
This type of storage is great for those who want to easily teach their kids to pick up. They can easily see what they have, but it is not good for people who want to store away the toys behind closed doors since you can see everything.
