I don’t have a ton of toys visible in the living room.
I definitely prefer calm, organized spaces.
Thankfully, most of the more sustainable and safe toy brands fit with that preference in regard to color scheme and design. There is a little corner by the widow that we devote to two large toys in the living room. It’s a corner that is offset from the couch, so it was really a convenient space.
Next, I discovered that legos are best stored in an ottoman with a lid. Reason 1, they cannot be dumped all over the floor (it’s a heavy ottoman). Reason 2, they are hidden unless being enjoyed. Win, win!
I have also decided to give one of my lower kitchen cabinets to the kids for neat, covered book storage.
The other space is next to the couch, where I have a large bin that matches my decor. In it are a few things that do not fit in the other 3 areas, such as vehicles, a blanket, toy camera, etc.
Have you found any clever ways to store your kids toys in a shared environment? Comment below! :)
I am a parent as well as a photographer, so you can probably imagine that I love products that are high quality, as durable as possible, and that I can customize with my photos. Enter, Pinhole Press.
They have tons of products and are continually innovating new ones. We have personally used their Memory Game (matching game), matte prints, greeting cards, albums, and Names and Faces Book (see some examples below). My kids really enjoy their products and use them daily.
For my business, I have used their perforated wall calendar, reusable wall stickers, and photo puzzles. Everything is beautiful and high quality. They also have excellent customer service, and we all know how important that is.
