I’d been putting it off for ages but I have finally got round to tidying up the children’s toys. This is such a terrible job – partly because it can’t be done when either of the children are around as they either become hysterical or start playing with all the broken baby toys that they haven’t looked at for years.
As well as the cupboards, there were some random bags of different bits of toys and one of those mesh tube baskets from Ikea that everyone has. I ended up pulling everything out and sorting through it all.
I’m glad I got this done; I now have separate sections for everything. I haven’t shown everything in the photos but we also have an old baby change table that has separate boxes for dinosaurs, Duplo, dressing up clothes and toy cars.
There are some doll pram / cradle / high chair toys that are pushed up by the side of the wall (these contain some dolls) and a mesh tube filled with soft toys (I should get rid of some of these but haven’t the will at present).
The cupboard (not all is shown) has musical instruments at the bottom, “active” stuff above it (stuff like the skateboard and footballs), then we have a load of Lego and play medical kit, then we have some puzzles, jewellery, letters and sticklebricks and puzzles and artwork on the top shelf. Above that is a smaller shelf that contains DVDs.
