Decorating huge and fluffy toys is not a big task, but what about simple and cute toys you want to display?

And decorating home becomes even more tedious when you have small kids. Managing space in kids bedroom for their clothes, books, essentials and most importantly toys which are strewn around all over the house becomes a headache.
Be it guest room, lobby or even kitchen you will find their toys and rattles all over the house. And no matter how spacious your house is – with kids around – storage will always seem like a huge challenge.
Fear not, help is at hand. We tell you simple, smart and snug ways to manage the storage space for toys.
Simple toy storage solutions – First things first..!!
Toddlers and even school going kids have a tendency to pick their favorite toys, play with them for a while and move on to next room leaving the toys around. A better idea would be to have small storage spaces or options in each room, once the child leaves a room just pick one or two toys to another room.
