Why is it that children seem to hoard teddies and soft toys? How does it even happen….I am pretty sure they actually just breed during the night and reproduce at the rate which rabbits do.
I swear Emmy only started off one evening with about 20 carefully selected, cute and special ones but fast forward to it being the annual clean and sort of her room and there are well over 200 of the things now. Of course, all of which are special to her and none could possibly be given away or heaven forbid thrown away – nope those dust collectors all have names, are given cuddles and she knows if one is missing.
Storing this amount of soft toys is a little tricky, I tried lining them all up on the top of her wardrobes but she couldn’t reach them and I spent so long having to hunt for a certain one who had to be in bed with her that night that I gave up, up until recently they have been hanging from the ceiling in an ikea toy storage net and piled into a washing basket but I still had to help get down the high hanging ones.
That’s when Songmics stepped in and send her a wonderful interlocking toy storage system for her room. This system is made up of 9 interlocking cubes which you build yourself and can customise the shape to fit the room/space available.
You could make it up into 3 x 3 cubes or mix it up a little and choose the best shape to fit.
This all comes flatpacked and initially you may think it will take a while to set up but it is actually a quick job BUT do make it up in the room you plan to use it in – unlike me who decided I had more room in the living room to assemble it then have to take it apart to get it up the stairs.
The boxes are made up of a high quality plastic sheet which all content together with plastic connectors which have slots to fit each piece into. There are diagram instructions which clearly show how the pieces all connect together and once you have your finished shape you can then slide the doors into the connectors in the front and you’ll have a solid structure.
Each cube is 112cm x 112cm and 37cm deep. When made up each cube can hold up to 10kg and the structure as a whole can be screwed onto the wall to help secure it in place.
I found this really easy to build although it was much bigger than I expected….that will teach me for not measuring it.
Because I was able to built to fit the space in Emmy’s room I was able to really customise it to sit on top of her chest of drawers.
She had great fun when she came home from school filling it will all of her soft toys, grouping them together into sets and families and she even had space left for other toys and books too.
This really is a great storage unit and because it comes in a few colour options you would be able to use in any room of your house to not only store toys but perhaps books, shoes or even clothes. These are available from Amazon and costs £36.99 (Currently on offer for £33.99 – with other colours available from £28.99)
