Storage. It's something we only ever seem to think about after Christmas or their birthday, when they have so much new kit you have no idea where you're going to put any of it. If, like many of us, you don't have the space for yet another bulky chest of drawers, or you can't face any more of those plastic buckets in your house there's good news...
A whole stack of cool and surprising storage just landed, that might just solve those space issues. And the best bit? It doesn't involve a trip to IKEA and a 20 page instruction book 🙌.
Here's 5 of our faves:
Olli Ella Luggy Basket
Tight on space? These Olli Ella Luggy Baskets are a great idea. Not only are they handmade and look cool, they're also handy for letting them take their toys wherever they go... the garden, a playdate, grandma's house etc. We like to think of them as the Mary Poppins of storage - they fit a lot in and they make clearing up a lil' bit more fun. Every little helps, right?
Play & Go Mat
We've had to keep restocking these here at KIDLY as they fly out the door so quickly. A playmat and storage bag in one, it's a great way to keep all those toys in check. Just spread it out, let them play and then, when it's naptime, pull the drawstring up to keep all the toys at bay. Simple, stylish and unique storage at its best. We have lots of great patterns and prints to pick from and it's also handy for travelling.
Tellkiddo Paper Bags
Not into plastic? These paper storage bags are the perfect option. Created from recycled paper, these cool pieces are stylish, practical and sustainable! Tellkiddo are a new Swedish brand to us here at KIDLY and make fun paper and fabric storage bags for kids. Their designs are strong, sturdy and can take everything little ones can (literally) throw at them. We're buying some for our living room, their nursery and well, pretty much every other place we can fit them in 👌.
3 Sprouts Storage Box
Hands up who has the standard IKEA Kallax Storage System that seem to grace living rooms across the land? 🙋. Well, now you can break free of the IKEA supplied baskets and jazz them up with these brilliant 3 Sprouts Storage Boxes. Designed to fit into the bookcases, we love that there's a range of animals to pick from. Oh, and if you don't have these shelves, the boxes also look great as standalone in their room too. #winning.
Liewood Ella fabric basket
Scandi fan? Want something a bit cool and different? These Liewood fabric baskets tick all the boxes. They look awesome and do the job well, fitting a range of toys in without taking up too much space. Buy one design, or pair up with another from the range. Pst - they don't just have to be used for toys we're thinking linen basket, mummy's handbag storage... the list is endless.
That's just a few of our fave storage pieces, there's loads more to choose from. Just head over to KIDLY's Storage section for lots more ideas. #yourewelcome.
