Choosing The Best Toy Storage
One important thing to do as our child’s toy collection grow is to devise a proper toy storage and to train your child to have a good clean up attitude. It is important to choose a toy storage that can withstand heavy use, that is safe for kids to use, and makes it easy for them to access their toys and put them away. You might also want to choose one that matches the decor of the rest of the room; some people even choose to repurpose old furniture with paint or stenciling to make it better match the surrounding decor. Ideally, a toy storage should have different compartments for different sized toys to be stored, especially toys that have a number of little pieces. This can be shelves of different sizes, such as stackable cube shelves that resemble bookcases, but are often used for in children’s rooms. Toy boxes are another option, which may be a good option for smaller children because they are lower to the floor. Dividers can be used in a large toy box to help keep it neater, and make it easier for kids or parents to find certain toys. Helping kids to learn to put things back in their proper place can be made easier with a toy organizer with designated compartments.
Safety is another very important consideration when choosing a toy storage. Anything that has the potential to fall on a child if he or she attempts to climb it or pulls on it, such as book cases or shelving, should be bolted securely to the wall. A toy box with a hinged lid should have guards that prevent kids from placing their fingers inside the hinges, and bumpers to prevent the lid from closing on the child’s fingers.
