When it comes to toys, it feels like we’re constantly picking up and trying new systems to keep our kids clean and organized. The key is finding the right system that works for you family. Having two young kids, large bins work well for us. We have the IKEA Kallax system with bins at the bottom. This way, when we clean up, my boys can put their toys in the bins and I can reorganize them how I like them later. The goal when they clean up is toys off the floor!
I have included links below for the Kallax systems as well as different bins that you could use. There are different colors and designs for each of them so find what you like!
For shelves and smaller toys for older kids, I like to use The Container Store storage bins. They come in all different sizes and can fit whatever toys you’d like. For young kids, you could provide picture labels. For older kids, you could provide word labels. As children get older, they are able to clean up and differentiate what they’re putting away. My four year old uses these when he cleans up sometimes, especially if it’s a toy he wants to bring to his room. It’s hard to build a large train track when so many pieces are missing!
I have linked below two storage bins I like (we actually have both for toys in our house). When I have the toys out for my kids, I leave the tops off since they are hard for them to take off. Also, I keep the tops on smaller toys so little brother doesn’t get into them and spill the legos everywhere!
Large storage bins also work well for storing toys. This is really helpful for young kids that have toys without small parts. I use these a lot in family living spaces where toys need to be for young kids. They get the toys off the floor quickly without much effort from the parents. I suggest opaque bins so you don’t have to see what is inside. If that doesn’t bother you, find what you like!
I have included some links from Target and IKEA that I use often and are at a good price point!
The most important part for toy organization is finding a system that works for you and your family can grow into. We have a combination of the Kallax system as well as smaller containers for items. With a four year old and a two year old, we are transitioning into toys with smaller items and more pieces. The smaller containers keep everything together, which little brother can spend time in the cube bins finding toys that are age appropriate for him!
