YWF Playroom Tour

Here is the full photo of how they look side by side. Yes, it's a lot of cubes, but we lots of toys and need the space! Each cube is the home for a designated toy group... we have

1- Magtiles   2- Vehicles   3-Train Tracks   4- Baby Toys   5- Animals   6- Babies   7-Shape Sorters.  8- Flash Cards and Educational Materials   9- Writing tablets/Letter Activities   10-Blocks            11-Science Kit    12- Miscellaneous items

I displayed a few of our favorite/pretty toys in the open shelves up top. Our ball pound and roll around toy, xylophone ball pounder, color ring sorter, and Montessori permanence box, horizontal stacker, and Montessori coin box.


Here is a peek at the other side of the room, across from the cubes. We have Evie's doll house, that we both love ;) on top of a little Ikea end table that was literally $7! This amazing tripod lamp, and art work by yours truly!! HA I couldn't afford a big fancy piece of art and was dying to have something that made a statement above the couch so I said what the heck and made some smudge art myself! 

Here is a closer view of my favorite pink couch and "invisible coffee table" as my husband calls it! Haha, I had to put a tray on it because we kept tripping over it! I love it because mess wipes right off and my kids love playing under it! The rug is the antelope rug from Ballard Designs.

To the right of the couch I have another Ikea cabinet that I keep all of our other toys in. We use these storage bins from the container store to keep our toys that have lots of parts all together! We have one for the kids play doctor set, counting cars, ABC locks, play people, and a few other toy sets! I love this little cabinet to hide our toys in! I use the small, medium and large ones the most! (the extra large are a bit too big)

My mom gave my kiddos this darling little grocery stand and they adore it! We have had this cute shopping cart ever since Evie turned one and it still looks brand new, 5 years later! I guess this is basically our Melissa and Doug shrine because the giraffe is M&D also!!  

When it came to a kids play table, I had a hard time deciding because there are SO many options, but I wanted something simple and practical. I went with the Pottery Barn large activity table with the short legs on it. When the kids get a little older, I will switch it out to the tall legs and put matching chairs around it. I liked that this table can grow with them, and its great quality. As for now, we have two cute poufs on either side for the kids to sit on when playing. On top, is my favorite toy ever... our large Grimm's Block Pyramid. 

Well there you have it, our playroom tour is complete! Stay tuned for a post about how we organize our toys and advice on what toys to keep/toss!
