We've been researching toy storage options for a West Los Angeles professional organizing client.
Who would have known so many options exist, high-end, low-end, every end imaginable-- and we're discovering new options every day and coming up with some great stuff. One look at the pictures we've posted for this topic and you can see the great options (can you tell we like nautical?)
One of the details we're looking at is safety. We're searching for a unit that will need to be safe enough for a younger child to reach items themselves, without the aid of a helper. We were going through some Los Angeles Times recalls recently and found one toy storage unit that came with trouble.
Bayside Furnishings of San Diego is recalling 9,350 La Jolla Boat Beds and Pirates of the Caribbean Twin Trundle Beds sold at Costco after a 22-month old boy died when the lid of a toy storage chest on one of the beds fell on his head.
Consumers have been told that the beds are safe to sleep in (and they are very lovely). However, the toy chests should not be used until the free safety kits are atttached to the toy chest lids. Free kits are available at the links below.
What safety elements do you look for when you shop for children's storage furniture?
