Time stops for no man, and it's hard to believe how far away Christmas feels. It might not feel so far away for you, however, if after a visit from Santa your kids' toys have multiplied, and you feel like not a day goes by where you aren't tripping over them. 

With this in mind, we at Wills & Smerdon have put together some inventive storage solutions for toys which will help quell the tide - and they're handy whether you're looking to sell your home, or just simply trying to get organised.


Do you often find your kids have enthusiastically pulled loads of their books off the shelves to find their favourite, only for the unchosen tales to become a slip-hazard? A front-facing book display is a great option so that small children can easily see the covers of their book collection, and can choose the one they want easily with minimum carnage. This one from Wayfair is only £24.99.


Having open toy storage makes it brilliantly easy to keep those toys with lots of little components all together whilst still being easily accessible this four-tier one from Argos at £40.00 has lovely colours and is very versatile, it will continue to suit your kids as both they and their toy collections grow! 

Hidden storage

If you're short on space and want to combine toy storage with other functionality, this bench from Great Little Trading Co. could be the solution for you. It's £202, but a great investment as not only can you store toys, you can add a bit of practical style to your home.

LEGO Brick Store

According to the QI elves, standing on Lego is more painful than walking on glass or firewalking. Well, worry no more! Putting the fun into functional, these giant LEGO storage boxes can keep the bricks contained, whilst brightening up the room. Not only are they brilliant, but they also cost under £25 from A Place for Everything. 

These are just a few ideas, but do you have any clever toy storage tips of your own? Please get in touch and let us know if you do, we'd love to hear them!
