Too many toys?

NorreboAt some point there is no escape possible. You need extra storage for your kids’ toys…

This Norrebo storage bench from Ikea does the job wonderfully. What I really like about it is the fact that, unlike conventional toy chests that have a flip-up top, it works as a huge drawer. Because of that, the top stays closed and can be used as a bench for sitting, or to display more toys on top. In our case it houses my daughter’s kitchen!

It’s solid birch wood, and having said that I think the price is very reasonable. The simple design of it makes it easy to blend into any interior.

PS. If you happen to be living in the U.S. and have a great storage solution, you can enter it in the ‘Now you see it, now you don’t’ children storage contest from Ohdeedoh!

We have one too! In fact Esther and I got ours at the same time after seeing our friend, Kim’s. My drawer doesn’t push back in perfectly (sometimes it gets a bit stuck, but it could be because it’s on carpet and the rollers don’t work as well). But regardless, this storage bench is GREAT because you can put stuff on top! (It’s double the storage)!

[…] that I’ve already tested and I can truly recommend. I kept myself from buying another Norrebo storage bench (on sale now), 4-for-the-price-of-one Daim chocolate bars, more hooded towels and the Plocka plates […]
