When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Legos. Perhaps unhealthily? Call it circle of life, or call it karma, but now my son is too and I'm always stepping on the things and you know what? They really hurt.
What we need is a playroom organized like this one...
For a not-even-two-year-old, he's very good about cleaning up his toys, but sometimes one gets overlooked and lies in wait on the living room floor, catching me by surprise as I stroll by, barefoot as we're a no-shoes-in-the-house kind of family, and probably carrying a cup of coffee that I slosh all over the place as I reel from the agony of unexpected hard plastic under my feet. So we're looking for some toy storage solutions.
These guys are amazing but maybe more suitable for baby's room than our living room, where most of the toys live.
A friend suggested buying some vintage trunks for baby's toys which is romantic and lovely until I imagine baby accidentally locked inside said trunk. Plus trunks just make me think of Karl Lagerfeld on vacation. Husband has proposed something more modern and space age but I'm struggling with spending thousands of dollars to store eighty bucks worth of plastic toys.
Given my track record for decorating decision making (we've been discussing reupholstering our dining room chairs since 2005) I probably won't come up with a stylish solution to this toy thing before baby is in college (or plumbing school—we're convinced that's the ideal profession, both lucrative and useful). So if you come over for dinner, um, watch your step.
