My kiddos love tiny toys. Specifically, Playmobils are a perennial favorite around here. And honestly, I love them too, that is until I have to clean them up. I'm a good homemaker, but a lousy housekeeper. In my frustration I had resorted to throwing them all in a big bin, it made clean up okay but playing frustrating.
No one wants to spend precious playtime digging around for the right shield or a miniature set of reins. Sadly, this chuck it all in a bin method of storing these tiny toys lead to one of two things: my kids either skipped playing with them because it was too much trouble or poured the entire contents all over the floor. After stepping on one too many little plastic swords, I finally found an organization solution.
My quest for totally organized tiny toys was answered by a trip to one of my favorite places: JoAnn's. There I found the Creative Options Two-Tray Box and Double Sided Thread & Parts organizers. Creative Options organizers were originally developed for craft supplies but they are perfect for organizing small toys; with plenty of little cubbies, no minute pony brush or tiny gold doubloon gets left behind.
Now that we have these organizers for our Playmobils everything is easy to find and easy to put away. It feels as though the thread holder is designed for Playmobil figures, each one fits perfectly in the individual cubbies. And since it is clear you can see everything you have without dumping anything out.
The two-tray box opens like a tackle box to reveal each and every cubby, plus the bottom is perfect for holding the slightly larger components such as small horses and their stable pieces. As an added bonus, both organizers have handles which make taking your toys on the go (or back to the toy closet) so much easier. If you've got tiny toys to tame, check out Creative Options.
I'd love to know, how do you tackle the mess of tiny toys at your house?
