When you have a small house or apartment, it is especially nice not be over run by toys! Even a large home can sometimes feel overwhelmed by toys everywhere. There are a few approaches you can take to avoid the toy invasion. You can limit the toys. I try to do this by once a month weeding out the toys that aren’t getting played with anymore and donating them. I also limit the toys in our house by buying quality toys over quantity. Another approach that I find helpful is choosing toys that are pleasant to look at. That is one reason I love wooden toys so much- besides being a more natural, eco-friendly toy option, they are also less intrusive in a space than colorful, loud, plastic toys. Here are 5 space saving toys you and your children are sure to love.
