We all dream of the perfect playroom.
It’s a space just for toys and it’s beautiful, just like a Pottery Barn catalogue. Your toddler will go to the shelves, remove the basket full of blocks, play with them quietly, and then put them back in the right place.
If you already have a child, you know how impossible that dream is.
The reality is that you’ll need more than a catalogue to conquer all of the clutter that kids bring with them.
