Is your home being taken over by toys?
by Louise D'Allura on May 9th, 2010

Toys everywhere! Is this a common problem in your home? I get a lot of enquiries from busy parents looking for tips and tricks to make the toy clutter easier to manage!

The most important weapon in the fight with toys is to set up your toy library!

To set up your toy library you need to do some observation! That's right just like a wildlife watcher! You need to know which are their favourite toys. Watch them for a week and see which toys they hunt out every day.

Once you know that, put everyday toys into smaller easy to access containers at a height suitable for the little hunters!

Now you can have a craft afternoon and create labels for the everyday toys.

So what do you do with the least favourite toys? Put them into a long term library storage - with a view to donate in 12 months time (if there are no other children on the way!) The toys that are used occasionly can be put into a week day toy library. You might take this out once a week or a couple of times a month on a set day just to add a little bit of interest to their play. There aren't any hard and fast rules so, just test out what works and try some of our bonus tips!

That's right - if you are ready for more tips we've put together a little tip book with 15 fabulous tips to help you on your way. Drop us a line and we'll send it out to you!
