The Songmics Toy Storage Unit review

Toy Storage Unit ideal for capturing all the smaller toys and party bag contents

I was recently contacted by Songmics to see if I'd like to review their new toy storage unit.  After looking at the product on Amazon I was more than happy to as this product fits in perfectly with our home decor - bright!

The design is quite a popular one in that it has 3 trays across 3 shelves.  The trays are designed to be placed at an angle to stop them from slipping.  The unit structure is solid and comes with the required hooks needed to hang on a wall if space is a premium.

The tubs are sturdy and bright but are not large. This is ideal for toddler-sized hands to be able to pick up a tub and have a rummage through smaller sized toys, which often get lost at the bottom of large toy boxes.

The unit comes flat pack, but is so easy to put together!  The holes are drilled out perfectly and the poles fit in with ease, there is absolutely no stress in putting this together and you should be able to complete within 10 minutes - I spent most of my time looking for the Phillips screwdriver!

Flat pack toy storage unit from Songmics can be put together in 5 minutes

The unit is very light to transport so it's not an issue where you build it... we've' all been there haven't we!  But don't be misled by how light it is, it is still very sturdy.

We decided to use our boxes to store our 'broken' Lego.  We have a LOT of Lego in our house, it's dotted around everywhere.  Some we (Max and I) are not allowed to play with.... but lots we can play with but are built up sets so they get rebuilt at the end of the day into their original design and then we have that wild Lego, the bricks we can build what we like how we like and break it all up again.

We recently purchased this whole box of Lego for £10 from Gumtree, and after watching Lego Master Builders we decided it would be great to have some organisation to this box (OK I did!).  Fortunately I wasn't tasked with the job of sorting the Lego - after all, I did put the storage unit together....

So that's what we've used our storage unit for.  I believe the first image with the toys - the avenger walkie talkies, power ranger action figures and pirate hooks gives an idea of the size of the toy box trays - the whole unit is 65 x 27 x 60cm, so for us, the perfect home for our Lego.

    1. Good point, I did give it a wobble this evening and yes it's sturdy. I think it's due to the thick poles and wooden sides.
