Luckily, we have a small loft where we keep the majority of the toys for the younger boys (as well as the Wii, and other kid-friendly entertainment that I'd rather not have in the main living space). That said, we do have some toy storage in the boys' room.
Boy #1 is a bit of a Lego fanatic. Okay, that might be an understatement. He is completely Lego-crazy. Combine that with a love of Harry Potter and Star Wars, and isn't hard to guess that we are overrun with Lego sets. So, in the room design I added a couple of shelves for displaying his favorite-at-the-moment Lego creations.
And, in all honesty, the top of this green dresser occasionally gets used as display space as well (although not in this pic - ha).
As does the top of the bookshelf.
And there is even more space out in the
Of course, if you have Legos at your house, I'm sure you know that the sets don't always stay put together, and those little bricks find their way ALL OVER YOUR HOUSE (and under your feet - OUCH!). But we've found that inexpensive buckets from IKEA do a great job corralling them.
And for the littler guys who still play with other building toys, these closet bins from Tar-jay do a great job.
And they all fit nicely in the Expedit bookcase from IKEA. Love that thing.
Have a great day~
