Anyone with children knows the feeling when guests are about to arrive, and it looks like a hurricane as dumped the contents of a toy store in your living room. We have all been there (to be honest, we’ll probably be there this weekend). But before you start stuffing toys behind cushions or trying to pretend that mound under the rug has always been there, check out our 10 ways to hide toys from visitors and save yourself the time and stress of the pre-party scramble.
1 – Felt and Denim Baskets
For a quick tidy up, our Felt Baskets and Denim Baskets are perfect for the job. Wonderfully lightweight, you (or little ones!) can carry them around while tidying up. Perfect for plush toys or small items such as cars and dolls. Also a great option for products that are used frequently, as they can be moved from room to room as needed.
2 – Toy Box
Okay, so probably the most obvious but our Toy Box is the master of disguise. This beauty is ideal for communal areas such as living rooms. The simple, neutral white design means it is not immediately recognisable as toy storage. Add a throw rug or some cushions on top and voilà– incognito toy storage that suits both adults and kids.
3 – Gloria Box
Similarly, our Gloria Box not only has ample space to store any toys inside, but its 100kg weight limit means it can double as extra seating! Winning in every way with this one.
4 – Stackas
Mocka Stackas are wonderfully versatile and do just want they say – stack! Grab a bunch of the Stackas in natural and store away any toys and nick knacks you’d rather keep out of sight of visitors. Stack in a configuration of your choice and pop a lush pot plant in the top stacka for a feature that is sure to appeal.
5 – Chelsea Buffet
The Chelsea Buffet is wonderfully modern and chic and looks fantastic in a living space. The spacious cupboards are ideal for PlayStations, consoles and computers and can be kept tidy behind the lovely white doors with visitors none the wiser.
6 - Lockas
Our Mocka Lockas are fast becoming a favourite among children and adults alike. The cool locka design and range of funky colours, means they look great in any setting. Our lockas also have adjustable shelves so can be adapted to your storage needs. And the best part? They have doors so you can tidy away any toys as you need.
7 – Minka A Frame
But you don’t have to store everything away behind closed doors - hide a few things in plain sight! Our Minka A-Frames are wonderfully chic and make dress-ups, clothes and accessories look super adorable so you won’t mind friends and family seeing them on display!
8 – Storage Cubes
Our Mocka Essential Storage Cubes are perfect for adding a wealth of extra storage to a room. These units allow you to can display only what you need and keep the rest tidy and out of sight.
9 – Fabric Boxes
The fabric boxes not only are great for storing any small toys or Lego, but they have the added bonus of fitting perfectly into out Essentials Storage Cubes!
10 - Post Boxes
Our Post Boxes make fantastic side tables in the lounge room or entertaining space. Not only can they provide a space to rest your drinks but also store toys and other items normally left lying around the house.
With all these great ideas, your next get-together is sure to be a toy-nado free experience. And even if its right around the corner, we have fast shipping all around Australia to ensure your hidden toy storage arrives when its needed the most!
