How it works

Are you one of those parents who struggle with toys every single day? We all know how much our kids are indulged in activities such as cleaning their rooms and sooner or later we become aware it is our job to pick up the toys which are to be found in every corner of the room. We usually admire those parents who manage to teach their toddlers that tidying up their rooms at the end of the day is their job. Unfortunately, most of us belong to the opposite group of parents. Cleaning the room is part of our everyday obligations at home and your kids should start raising awareness about this when they are around 3 years old.

Even though we cannot expect too much from a child, yet for start, they can pick up their toys or stop throwing out clothing and food all over the room. Kids psychologists advise parents to start teaching their kids to have a feeling of responsibility because they will easily cope with working habits later in life. In order to achieve that goal, we should go step by step. The first step to set the basis and increase their awareness to have their rooms tidy is to find the perfect place for the toys. Most of the parents would agree there is nothing more painful than stepping on a LEGO or another toy with sharp ends and would certainly be determined they should make this step forward. Step 2 2 I 1 toy box would certainly be the perfect choice and kids will quickly learn they should put toys in there without too many efforts because it is designed with a lid for drawing activities and it is not only useful but fun in the same time.

Design

Design

Step 2 2 in 1 toy box fits in kid’s room, in living room, bedroom or even on the terrace or porch, wherever you want, not only because of its design but especially because it can be found in 5 colors and it would be a useful and beautiful piece of furniture that kids would love. It is spacious enough inside and can be used for one type of toys such as stuffed animals or all types of plastic toys that come will a lot of accessories. It comes almost fully assembled which is one more plus for the designer. The 2-in-1 Toy Box and Art Lid is definitely made for indoor play. It can be used for outdoor activities as well, only if weather is nice. The design of the lid is not suitable for rainy days because it can damage the items inside and also the label may peel if exposed on water. The lid is removable and cannot be locked on the box. It seems a little flimsy but its flat surface allows you to put a piece of paper for drawing on it which is actually its purpose. It also has a little lip that can be used for placing crayons, pencils, brushes or whatever you give your kids to play with. The back of the lid is not designed in the best way as it has sharp edges, not suitable for very young kids. In short, it is a great product for easy and quick clean up

Creativity

Creativity

Your little ones are often bored with their numerous toys and you are probably of those parents who would not let them sit too long in front of screens and sooner or later you will face the fact that you are lack of ideas to keep them busy. This situation could be frustrating for parents but the 2-in-1 Toy Box & Art Lid is the right choice to have them included in useful and fun drawing activity that will expand their creativity and improve their motor skills in the same time. It is very fun for parents as well and it would be even better if they help their little ones in increasing their creativity. All kids love to draw. Give them a piece of paper, place it on the lid with the little help of the clip, and soon you will have beautiful art pieces. Praise their efforts and ask them what they drew. You would probably not get an actual answer, so guess, for example: Is this a bunny? It is beautiful, beautiful ears you have drawn! Show your little ones how to draw, show them the colors, draw and color together. When kids start to draw they want to do that at unusual surfaces and the more they become creative the more we find paint all over the walls and furniture. Therefore, The 2 in 1 toy box is perfect for this purpose and it will serve as your child’s unusual place for drawing. When your kids are done with playing help them gather their toys in the box. Still, bear on your mind that you cannot expect too much from your kids, so don’t insist on exaggerated order because it kills creativity.
Versatility

Versatility

Kids lose interest in their staff, but it doesn’t mean they should throw their toys, books, and puzzles all over the floor. Besides, leaving a mess behind this is also not safe because they can step on a toy, fall and hurt themselves. Teach your kids that as soon as they are finished playing with one toy, they should return the toy to their new toy box and then take another one to play with. When you are tiding up next time, make it look nice and fun in order to have your kids intrigued and let them see it is not a boring and hard process. For example, you can play their favorite music and serve them their favorite juice in their favorite cartoon plastic cup which will be their award when you are thirsty and tired. You can arrange the toys and books by color or size in order to turn your cleaning into a fun game. This process of gathering the toys and putting them in the toy box shouldn’t last for too long because kids will easily lose their interest. The best thing about the box is that they can tidy up quickly and easily and have their rooms cleaned within a few minutes.

Materials

Materials

Toy boxes are usually made of paper wood or plastic. We would all agree that paper boxes are useful only for a short time because of their durability. Wooden boxes are usually old fashioned, very heavy and hard to be moved from one place to another. Plastic ones are definitely the right choice in case you need this kind of box. The 2 in 1 Toy Box is made by Step 2 one of the best USA manufactures of kid’s toys and kid’s furniture for outdoor and indoor activities. Their products are famous for its design but also for being with high quality and long lasting for future generations. The 2 in 1 Toy Box can be found in gray, pink, tan, red or blue color. It is a piece of furniture but the lid obviously makes it with another purpose also. It will be just fine as long as it is placed under cover. Please avoid exposing this toy box to direct weather. In short, it is a product for quick and easy clean up. It is itself easy to be cleaned simply by using a wet towel. This product is made out of Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) which is characterized by chemical resistance, stability to cracking or puncture and it is kind of durability we can expect from Step 2.
