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!
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)
When it came to a kid splay 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!
