As my son grew into a toddler and the toys started piling up, I realized the one, large toy box I had for him wasn't going to cut it for much longer. His various blocks, toy cars, bouncy balls etc. would get lost in the mix of toys. So I began searching for a toy organizer that would keep small toys together without being an eyesore as his playroom is also our living room. I found lots of great options but the two color options were always either pink-themed -- not exactly what I wanted for my son's toy box or our living room -- or primary colors that would look nice in a preschool classroom... and not anywhere else. I really wanted to find something functional and attractive, and I almost gave up until I saw this beauty! It's perfect in every way.
The design won me over instantly. The colors blend nicely into the living room while still being sensible for kids. And, those wonderful bins! I love everything about them. It comes with cute labels for each bin that work with dry-erase markers, making it easy to write what goes where, and even easier to change things up when needed. The two lowest bins sit on the floor of the room and hold larger-sized collections perfectly -- right now one has books (LOTS of books!) and the other houses my son's large toy trucks. The three shelves hold 9 smaller bins that are the perfect size for all sorts of toys, and my 17-month-old can remove the bins, get out the toys he's looking for and put the bin back away all on his own. The unit itself is sturdy and came with it's own strap for securing it to the wall. All children's furniture should do this! It does require some assembly but my husband had it set up in 5 minutes.
I highly recommend this toy organizer for everyone, especially if your child's toys are stored in the main living area as the lovely, child-friendly but subdued colors are the defining feature of this product.
