    Default How do you store toys?

    At the moment we have plastic tubs holding all the toys and a few baskets. The problem is that nearly every toy has several parts to it and the point of the toys get lost if they are all just stored together in tubs. Ds also can open everything and at the moment it all just gets thrown everywhere :/ I'm forever
    trying to find the bits and pieces and it's driving me nuts.

    I don't want 1000 tubs though to separate all the toys and try and keep them together. Argh!

    Any good storage ideas?

    We use plastic tubs to separate similar things (ie Lego) then pack each individual set into glad bags

    I just put most of ds' blocks in a plastic tub today. We have other block sets which are stored in cloth bags and we only bring one out at a time. Large ziplock bags might be good for things like puzzles.

    We have the ikea expedit (four shelves/cubes) in our kitchen/dining where he mainly plays. Love it! The boxes hold so much more than you imagine and it's ascetically pleasing. ☺️ he has one in his bedroom as well, top half books and bottom is cubes where I store more stuff, toys, sheets, sleeping bags, etc.

    Wi am planning on getting something like this http://www.ikea.com/au/en/catalog/products/S29102994/ for DS's room when we have finished painting his room. The tubs have lids. Also can have shelves.

    Small baskets on bookshelves. These baskets were only $2 at bunnings. I find lots of small baskets is good for the bitty things and, as you say, the kids can then play with a set of something. We have two of these shelves then two large cane baskets for soft toys.

    Default How do you store toys?

    Thought I would upload a pic since we're back to being organized after taking all the Christmas decorations down. This is in our kitchen/dining area. We have a larger one (8 cubes/shelves) in DS' room and the boxes in the bottom row of 4, half toys half sheets and other random baby cr@p ☺️. Books in the top row. The boxes hold so much more than you imagine.
