I bought great modular storage units from http://www.colorfulstyles.com, I combined several modules and chose bright colors and the result was amazing! a bit pricy but high quality and definitely worth the price!

If the toys don’t fit into your storage unit, get rid of the toys. There is nothing that says you have to keep every toy given to your child.

It is a square and fits into their LAK shelves with the cubbies. Last year they only had the baskets, but this year they have a clear cube and a red/pink one…. the don’t have a lid, but it is a start. I didn’t check the price, but I am headed back there today….

I’m in love with the P’kolino Kubes – now if only Ikea would knock them off and sell them for cheap! Maybe I’ll send them an email. I like the idea of crates too. They are versitile and could make the transition from toddler toys to big kid stuff. Thanks again – you’ve got a great thing going!

If the toys can be seen and are easy to access, they will be played with and put away with ease. I use little baskets that hold a small amout of toys. You can also use the wooden wine boxes that the liquor stores are throwing away(free). They can be painted and used for a variety of toys/supplies.

I love it. It holds a lot of weight and the cost… $40-70
