A simple children’s storage idea with over a dozen different themes that will appeal to young kids aged from 18 months to 5 years. These bin storage units consist of an MDF frame and 6 printed fabric storage drawers (or bins) which are slightly tilted to make them more accessible.
There are a selection of designs based on popular cartoon characters as well as general themes based around kid’s interests. And, although I don’t want to be accused of gender-stereotyping, there is an equal choice for boys and girls whatever they are into to.
For the Boys there are Disney themes and generic design units to compliment a themed room …

These multi-bin toy organisers by Delta are another children’s storage idea very much inspired by the best-selling range of bin storage units above. However, if you have younger kids they might prefer this softer version featuring cuter imagery of popular Disney characters?
