Fed up of near breaking your ankle daily from tripping over them? Yep!
But nowhere in your house to store them all? Yep again!
Now obviously, we could all be brutal and chuck the stuff out.
But some of these toys are seriously good. I love our bricks and train track and marble run and our mecano. It’s all great stuff.
They just don’t get played with ‘cos they’re all jumbled up and we can’t find the pieces.
Or at least they didn’t, until I discovered this seriously awesome cheap DIY toy storage idea. It’s a brilliant way to organise toys in kids bedroom or nursery but is also a super useful toy storage solution in living rooms especially if you’re trying to organise cars, trucks & bulky toys in a small space without losing your marbles!!
So do check it out and for more simple storage ideas follow me on Pinterest.
Simple DIY Toy Storage Solution
Like all the best tips, this DIY toy storage idea is pillaged from a friend.
And I promise you, it is truly genius.
Especially, if like me – like all Londoners? – you feel as if you’re living in the tiniest of very tiny rabbit hutches with no room for fancy-schmancy, toy storage units.
The secret – just in case you haven’t grasped it from the pics – is laundry bags!
Yep, cheap as chips laundry bags – you can pick up from your local store – make a fab, simple toy storage solution that will help keep all those trucks & cars or train track pieces or bricks or marble run extensions in one place.
You can shove all sorts of odd shaped toys in them and then store the bags away in toy boxes, behind sofas, under beds, under the stairs, wherever …
… but those great toys you love don’t get forgotten, ‘cos you can easily see what’s inside.
Like I say, pure genius! I do hope this simplest of toy storage ideas saves your sanity as much as it has mine.
