We love toys as kids – and sometimes as big kids too. As kids grow, their toys change, so they end up with a huge collection.
We can be reluctant to give away or sell toys: they remind us of
our childhood – of magic, wonder and excitement. We smile when we
rediscover an old favourite toy and we can't resist playing with
Some toys and collectables stay with us for life. Many are worth more with their original box. So for many reasons it makes sense to plan to have the right toy storage from the start.
Parents, family, friends, neighbours and schoolmates... so many people give children toys for their birthday, Easter and of course Christmas – even Santa!
Year after year you've the headache of where to put everything. It can be chaos. But just like in chaos theory, a small change can make a big difference. So we've great solutions to keep their room tidy, to bring back order and to give you back your sanity.
Ask the experts: no not us, well not first off. Ask your kids: it helps them buy into it. Together you can choose what you need and where it should go and get things sorted. Then place an order to have the storage they need with the style they want at the price you love. If you need our expertise to create a specialist solution to maximise every inch of your space, give us a call - we'd be happy to talk to you.
We road-test all our toy boxes, toy trunks and toy storage boxes. It's an excuse to be a kid again, flinging things in, throwing a teenage tantrum or two and seeing what survives. What's left is only the best that takes some beating – literally – and we believe it often beats the quality and value of certain famous Scandinavian brands. So our long-lasting toy storage also means it'll be great storage for clothes etc. when they're older.
It's not rocket science to get kids to take on a new neat regime. Rewarding good behaviour creates a tidy routine and teaches them to be organised. It creates a calm place for them to relax, unwind and be refreshed for school – so it helps their development too. Let's get started!
At the end of the day, toys need tidying away. Our modular Handbridge Cube Collection is ideal: the standard size lets you can store or display toys – or slide in some storage boxes, trays and baskets.
Top Tip: Make the most of under stairs and attic rooms by stacking storage cubes into 'steps'.
Our easy access Stacking Open Toy Storage Trunk swallows up clutter and gives easy to fill and grab-n-go items at your little 'uns level. It eliminates the "you never play with the toy at the bottom of the toy chest" scenario. Plus, as each toy storage cube cleverly interlocks, you can safely stack them to make the most of vertical space.
Both are right: it's up to you and your children. We have them all to mix it up or match your existing colour scheme.

Some things are too good to hide: our licenced LEGO Minifigure Display Case shows off their favourite figures and hours of hard work – all free from dust. Plus, they're stackable: just add more cases as their collection grows.
Idea: Vibrant brights or calming neutrals? Can't decide? Then have both: fun, funky colours for their room, but more traditional shades in your lounge...

bigger toys. Plus, they're a seat too. Our superb choice from
wood to wicker, in neutral colours and natural fabrics make it
easy to have them in your living room too.
