Since we became a family of six people people have started asking me lots of questions about our household, questions they never asked when we had ‘just’ three children. From ‘how many loads of washing do you do every day?’ to ‘how do you get everyone ready in time in the morning?’ and of course the popular question ‘how do you keep your house tidy?’. Four young children make a lot of mess, if I don’t stay on top of it toys will be scattered all over the house which is why we created a playroom.
To make it easy for little people to keep the playroom neat and tidy we purchased two Mocka Six Cube Storage Units ($99.95) and filled them with (most of) the children’s books and toys. The books are hidden behind the doors, the toys are sorted in handy Fabric Boxes ($9.95) eg. Duplo, dress ups, Mr. Potato Head, toy animals, and trains. With four kids (which equals lots of toys, books and games) you have to be a bit strict: you are allowed to play with the toys but before you move on to the next thing you have to tidy away what you were playing with. As you can see in the picture it doesn’t always go right but it’s a nice aim…
Mocka Storage Units ($39.95-$99.95) are available in 2, 3, 4 or 6 cube size and you can choose from a range of different door colours to suit your decor. We decided on neutral white and add colour with the boxes simply so we could move the units between the bedrooms later on if needed. We have had our units for around 4 months now and they are absolutely brilliant, they were easy to set-up, are very hardwearing and look fantastic (if I may say so myself).
If you are keen to bring some order to the chaos at your house you’re in luck, until tomorrow Mocka is running a sale on the Storage Units with discount up to 37% to be had. You have to be quick though, these units are always very popular and some sizes and colours have already sold out. If you’ve missed out just bookmark the Mocka website in your computer, new stock is just around the corner. Also keep an eye on the Mocka Facebook page for new arrivals and fabulous offers.
On the other side of the room you’ll find a wooden toy kitchen and a table for arts, crafts and puzzles, so there is loads of entertainment packed in one room. Our playroom is simple and clean with lots of floor place for the children to play on and the kids think there is nothing better than picking a box from the cupboard and tipping it out on the rug. Instead of having three bedrooms filled with toys and books we keep everything together in the playroom, this keeps the bedrooms tidy and easy to clean and takes away some of the distractions for bedtime.
One very big benefit of the playroom is that the living room is free from clutter and visitors don’t have to wade their way through kids toys. Mini guests justs run straight to the playroom and join my tribe, easy!
