Remember that time when you were hurrying and accidentally stepped on something sharp? Ouch!! As you’d look down in pain to check, you’ll find that the culprit is none other than your kid’s innocuous toy! Sounds familiar? Keeping your child’s toys organized is one of the biggest challenges you’ll face once your baby hits toddler-hood. And try as much as you can, but your kid will never comply. So, here are a few hacks that’ll not only keep your home neat but will also save you those accidental injuries:
Toy Storage Box
These boxes will save the whole effort of keeping toys in one place and can conveniently fit in any corner of the room. They come in attractive colors and designs. These wooden boxes also double up as desks for your little one when he/she is in a mood to color or paint.
These baskets are lightweight compared to the wooden boxes. If you are concerned that your baby might hurt his/her hands while closing the wooden boxes, then this is the right one for you. These baskets come with drawstrings that are safe to close and easy to carry around.
This is a cost-effective option if you already have more than two children at home. All you have to do is get a good bookshelf with a slightly bigger space. Once your children outgrow the toys, you can just use them for books. And yes, make sure they are brightly colored!
Toy Storage Hanger
If we could award one innovation for space saving, then this one has to be it! Easy, lightweight, and safe for your child, you can just put this hanger at any place you’d want – in the balcony, behind your door, or even inside your cupboard!
Large Iron Baskets
Need something that’ll not easily topple on your naughty munchkin? Then get these large iron baskets. It makes it easy for you to gather all the toys and dump them in one go. Plus, accidental water or liquid spills won’t soil them either.
Drawers Under Baby Bed
This is another stroke of a genius for parents hassled with lack of space. Just buy a pretty bed with drawers underneath. Or still better, ask your neighborhood carpenter to customize one for you and behold! Your toy storage problems will be solved like the swish of a wand!
Toy Storage Cubes
These toy storage cubes come handy if you wish to train your little devil into sorting the toys all by himself/herself. Lightweight, colorful, and attractive, your kids can easily take them along wherever they go. You can also quickly stack them inside or above your cupboard to hide them for occasions when you don’t want the ammo to come out!
Cabinets With Plastic Bins
These cabinets can be multipurpose. Firstly, the plastic bins are easy to slide in and out at your will. The different colors and sizes help you keep your baby’s stuff, apart from toys, well organized. Their smooth edges do not harm your baby. And finally, they too can be used to store books, clothes, socks, etc. as your baby eventually outgrows the toys.
Wicker Bins And Baskets
