View Full Version : Proper toy storage at last.

06-07-2008, 08:04 PM
Toy storage is a nightmare in my house, there just never seemed to be enough room for everything.:rolleyes:

I've been looking at some storage shelves in Argos for a while, they come with stack boxes, but I convinced myself that they would be way too small.

Well today I thought stuff it, got my inspection next week, so went and bought them.

WOW they are fantastic. One even have book hammocks on which are fab. I'm so please with them, there is loads of room for loads of stuff!

Heres some pictures............before they get attacked and emptied tomorrow!

They look great. :D

They look great.

I'm seriously considering something like this. All my toys are in ikea boxes with lids, stacked 2 or 3 high. The little ones can't 'help themselves' to stuff in the bottom boxes, so it's not ideal.

Think I'll check my bank balance and start 'ringing and reserving'!!:laughing:

They look great!

I have too many toys and are all in big purple plastic boxes. These seem ideal!

They look really good - I think the one with the book hammock is great

Brilliant idea!

I hope the children enjoy them tomorrow :D

They are great:clapping: I'm sure they will be loved by the children

I have the Argos storage stacker units they are fab.

Not allowed to buy any more though, the room can't take it :D

they look really good, I like the hamock one:thumbsup: , I have lidded storage with photos on the front, it would be nail biting for me to have so much they could just grab

very nice :)

i'm thinking of changing storage in my playroom. I have so many of the huge plastic boxes and same here - kids can't get to bottom boxes. I have decided i've got far too many toys, but can't get rid of any as they're all played with. I think the problem is i;ve got too much of each. ie, a million megabloks, a million cars, happy land and little people (only need one set), everysingle bob the builder toy, tons of character stuff (toy story etc). so what i'm thinking is halving everything and buying smaller storage boxes so children have more floor space. these units look ideal, off the have a look online now.

They look great- now i want some

07-07-2008, 09:28 AM
I am soo tempted to buy this storage unit!! It looks fab...
I just love buying toys etc..
I know I am pre-reg, but I always tell myself, even if they will not let me register ..I can still use if to my dd....
and so I just keep on spending all my money on kids stuff!!!
....OMG I am a shopping addict!!!:laughing: :laughing:

i was gonna get some of them - guess who didn't want his house looking like a nursery!!! :mad: ah well, maybe i'll get some anyway!! lol

07-07-2008, 12:23 PM
i keep buying stuff too, dreading my first week of accounts, will take me days to wade through the amount of paper lol

07-07-2008, 12:30 PM
I was only looking at these yesterday!:laughing:

07-07-2008, 12:56 PM
I like the look of these too but am surprised how expensive they are. £85 for both.

I've printed out pic's to show hubby who's a carpenter. I'll get him to make the frame and buy the plastic boxes and make the hammocks myself out of some funky fabric.

Now I just need to find some time !!!
