The house that we currently live in, is teeny weeny. We recently moved from the East Midlands to the South of England, but we’re not 100% sure where we want to call home around these parts. We just picked the first, most practical house that was close enough to work while we get to know the area. This is all good and well apart from the fact that my son’s toy collection seems to grow daily.
With his birthday that just passed, and Christmas on the way, I knew we were going to have to come up with some toy storage solutions that do more than just store toys.
I opted for an ottoman in the lounge, and a shoe rack in his bedroom. I’ll get to the shoe rack in another post though.
The Ottoman I picked is from Songmics. They sell their flat pack furniture on Amazon. We have quite a few of their products in our home already, such as a bamboo bench and lots of shelving. They’ve survived three house moves already and have served us very well. I’ve always been pleased with the quality and functionality of their products, so I contacted them for a collaboration.
I went for a brown pleather ottoman, not only to match the colour scheme in the lounge, but so that I could easily clean it after my son wipes his slimy, banana cover hands on it. The kid loves bananas.
The ottoman is 110cm long, 38cm high and 38cm wide. That’s loooots of space to keep all of Seth’s toys in, but also enough to comfortably seat two people, should you need extra seating.
We had Seth’s first birthday party this weekend the extra seating space came in very handy. I was wondering if it would survive two adults sitting on it for a few hours, and it did, easily. It is rated to withstand 300kg of weight bearing down on it though, so I guess this was light weight for the ottoman.
For something that arrives flat in a box and then simply folds out, it’s extremely sturdy and has surpassed all of my expectations.
I’m so grateful for Seth’s toys but you can only trip over little cars SO many times before you go insane. Don’t even get me started on Legos! Now everything is tucked away in the ottoman and my lounge is neat and tidy. Bliss!
