The downsizing movement and minimalist lifestyle are no longer a trend. Millions of people all around the world are looking for ways to get rid of the clutter and make space in their homes.
With the holiday coming up, it also means that parents everywhere are scratching their heads about where they’re going to be able to possibly put any more toys. Instead of spending the next few weeks stressing or trying to sell out old toys in your home to make way for new ones, why not consider adding some of these space-saving toys to your list?
Not only are they great fun for the kids, but they don’t take up very much room, either. This means that you can still deliver on fun items for Christmas morning without having to deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with the worry of clutter.
What toys don’t take up make space are are great for apartment living?
Not all toys have to have a million parts or take up a bunch of room. These are toys out there that were created with being as minimal as possible, and those toys are ones that need to be on your radar.
These space-saving toys can make the holidays super fun and simple!
Giving a scooter as a gift is a great idea for so many reasons. First off, it helps to keep your child active and moving. Hopping on the scooter and scooting around the neighborhood is an awesome way to get their little bodies moving.
We were sent an amazing one that lights up and collapses for easy storage from globber! I highly recommend it because it’s also been well-suited for multiple ages for our chidldren. Check it out below:
Secondly, scooters fold up nicely and can be easily stored in a closet or under a bed. They take up minimal space but provide maximum fun.
Pop Up Tent
Who doesn’t love the idea of camping? But keeping that tent or fort out just takes up too much space. The simple answer is to equip your home with a fun pop up tent.
You can easily put it up and down within moments so there’s no need to dedicate an entire space in your home to an indoor camping adventure.
LEGO + Books
It’s a safe bet to say that if you have children, you have LEGOS in your home. So why keep adding to that pile of LEGOS every single holiday when you can combine and create with what you have? The Sarah Dees Books show your children (and you!) how to easily create cool items with the LEGOS that they already have.
Once they realize that they can give that old set of LEGOS a new life, they’ll be engaged and intrigued for hours. My friend Sarah has an amazing line of books and her newest one about space creations just came out:
Every child loves to play kitchen but does that really mean that you need to have a giant plastic play kitchen taking up all that space? This Pop Oh-ver allows you to create a truly unique play area that attaches to a chair easily and quickly.
The children can play with it for the time being and then you can easily untie it and put it away. It’s seriously as simple as that. And we have used it for a couple of years now and love it! Find it here:
Stuffed Animal Hammock
How many stuffed animals do you have in your home? 10? 20? 50? Maybe you’ve just lost count…if so, this stuffed animal hammock is a great way to store all those adorable animals in a way that keeps them off the ground and out of your way.
Trundle Train Table
Train tables are the best but they take up a big area of space. But this trundle train table was made to slide easily under a bed when it’s not in ease and can easily be pulled right back out when it’s time to play.
That way it doesn’t take up any excess room in the room at all!
Rugs made as play mats
We love using play mat rugs in our house because they serve a dual purpose. They are great for decorating a room but they’re also easy to play with and use imagination and creativity. Some have roads on them, other tracks, other are just maps or creative scenes.
With so many fun play mat designs out there, your child can easily sit on the floor for hours and create a fun and magical land!
As you can see from this last, there are space-saving toys out there that can be a great choice for you and your family.
Figure out what you have room for and what interests your child, and then make a plan to order. You can have a simple and blessed Christmas all in one!
