If you have young children with a lot of toys, as nice as keeping everything separated in clear plastic bins sounds, a toy box may be easier for you and them. In reality, it can be difficult for young children to keep all the toys sorted properly.
A toy box with a lid still provides a place for all of the toys to be stored and out of the way. For our family, I love the dump-and-go. Everyone picks up and dumps the toys all in one spot. The lid means that you don’t have to look at the mess. It can provide a place for little bottoms to sit and read a book.
If the number of toys exceeds the capacity of the box it might be time to declutter or try some of these toy storage tips.
