Organized Playtime

With holiday advertising under way, I received a toy catalog from Target and saw something that made me smile. The Play My Way Role-Play Center from Fisher Price must have been inspired by a professional organizer.

As an organizer, I see lots of toy clutter in clients’ homes. This toy actually has four “themed role play bins” that contain each of the role-play accessory kits. Each bin has a picture on the front that shows what’s inside, allowing kids to select the toy they want to play with and put it away.

If you already have doctor kits, play food and workshop toys, take the suggestion that we organizers often give and put your toys in labeled bins. You can do this for action figures, Barbies, lego and any other toy that has lots of pieces, too. If your children can read, you can print labels; otherwise, cut out pictures from catalogs and use them as labels.

What ideas do you have to help reduce the amount of toy clutter in your home? Click on Post a Comment, below, and tell us.
