I quite often look at my front room in dismay and remember tidier times before children when it was toy free. We have five boxes full of cars, train track, duplo and the rest but it always seems to be a mess and the boxes are a mix of everything, surely there’s a better storage option than the one we have. I’ve come across it, something that can keep duplo separate from trains and enough space to house the huge crane and helicopter and it’s sold in trusty Ikea.
They have a number of different combinations but the one on reduced at the moment is this one:
Down from £63 to £53 a 15% saving. This one works out well if you know you want all the same size boxes however there is another option:
Its a 22% reduction on the frame but you’ll need to add your own boxes, this one I think would work better for me as we have some larger trucks etc but the cars take up less space. There are four different size boxes to choose from ranging from £1.50 to £3.50, therefore better for you to custom it to your own requirements. I personally don’t see the point in buying beautiful furniture to house toys when children are going to be playing in close proximity because it’ll just end up with crayon, pens, stickers, playdoh etc all over. Unfortunately for me our front room is packed and we don’t have anywhere to put anything this tall but once we’ve finished our house
in ten years time i’ll be investing in some cheap Ikea storage to hide all the crap.
