How to contain our enthusiasm...
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.
Presents Present you with a Problem
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.
Make Tidying Childs Play
Ask the experts: no not us, well not first off. Ask your kids: it

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
Toy Storage that Lasts
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.
Tidy Room Tidy Mind
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.
Pick plains or patterns, neutrals or brights – or opt for fun and
funky ideas including hearts, ponies, dinosaurs, chalkboards and even a shark mouth and football stadium.
Top Tip: Make the most of under stairs and attic
rooms by stacking storage cubes into 'steps'.
Handy Open Storage for Fast Toy Tidy ups
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.
Co-ordinate or contrast?
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. For bright
primary colours, these officially licenced Giant LEGO Brick Storage Drawers Lego boxes
are brilliant way to tidy the bricks away and to carry them to a
friend's house – plus the drawers stack too!
Top Tip: Theme your toy storage in different
colour or with coloured stickers – or if they're younger use
photos – so at a glance they're easy to identify.
Tucked away or on display?
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
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...
They're great throw-everything-in solutions, especially for
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.
Top Tip: Looking for storage? Sleep on it: Our
3x XXL-sized Under Bed Boxes swallow 60 litres of clutter.
Maximum storage, minimum footprint
Secure stackable storage has a smaller footprint, so your child
has more room to play, plus it's easier to clean. Or just free up
your floor with our versatile Elfa Storage Systems for a bespoke wall
Off the floor, on the door
Use the back of their bedroom/playroom door – or outside or
inside their wardrobe doors. Our 16 Pocket Over Door Organiser and Elfa Door Rack are ideal for toys, teddies
and craft items.
Storage is good for their health too
We all know treading on LEGO is painful. So let's think for a
moment about the health and safety of storage. Storage tidies
away trip hazards, plus they reduce surface areas to make
cleaning easier, which helps the battle with asthma.
Top Tip: Don't clutter your home with bulky
outdoor toys: hide them in our Wooden Garden Chest to keep your
garden pristine at the end of play time.
