If you live with children, finding a place for every toy in your home is a never-ending struggle. To ensure that your home doesn't turn into a giant toy box, particularly around birthdays and festive-giving times, you need to have regular clear outs. Those toys that seem to hold no interest any more sell, take down to the charity shop or hand down to younger friends and relatives.
As so many of the toys in your home are likely to be on display for want of somewhere to hide them, try to be a bit discerning in what you buy. It may cost a little more, but that pretty wooden kitchen will look so much better in the corner of your lounge than one of those fluorescent plastic numbers.
Same goes with storage, try to avoid storing toys in those ugly plastic boxes. Instead opt for a few attractive looking baskets or crates. Or invest in a purpose built storage unit, that doesn't necessarily look like a toy box.
And for all those little toys that often turn up in going home presents, or games with lots of bits such as lego, invest in a few mini suitcases.
