Ikea PS Fangst
Disadvantages: holes not all in a row, holes not as big as perhaps they could be
Our little nephew normally stays over with us once or twice a week, and he is always leaving various soft toys and other bits and bats at our house until next time. I'm a bit of neat and tidy freak and so I'm always tidying them away, and then he gets a bit upset when he can't instantly see everything out and ready for him next time he comes.
My sister has one of these Ikea PS Fangst hanging storage nets already in my nephews bedroom, and he always tidies away his own soft toys into this at home. They are only £2.99 from Ikea and so I decided to get one to put up at our house as well, to encourage him to do the same at our house.
The PS Fangst hanging storage net comes in 3 colours; blue, pink and green. We bought the blue. And as I mentioned it's just £2.99. It has 6 storage compartments, and each storage compartment has a small circular hole in, to put things in or take them out. The hole is quite a small hole, and as such some of his bigger soft toys don't really fit through that well. Another slight gripe that I have with this is that all of the holes are not actually lined up in a row, they are all at different positions on the net, and so depending where you position this then some of the holes may well be facing the wall.
It hangs from the ceiling, and you just need to put a hook in the ceiling to enable you to hang it. The hanging net then has a loop that you just hang on to your ceiling hook, the loop fastens with a velcro fastener so basically if you fill the hanging net too full then the velcro will open, likewise if your little one decides to use the net as a climbing frame then again the velcro will open. Once hung, the hanging net is 1.7metres long, and each compartment is a fairly substantial size.
We've hung ours in the corner in the box room, where our nephew sleeps over. Ours is always fairly full, he has various soft toys in there, plus small cars and figures and helicopters etc, I also tend to pop his clothes for the weekend in there too, so a few changes of clothes. I use the higher compartments for his clothes as he can't reach those to put his toys in anyway, and he always puts his own toys away now in the lower compartments.
It's not the nicest looking storage in the world, but it is kinda funky, it is really just cheap and cheerful I guess, however it works for now for us, and it was only £2.99, plus a ceiling hook from B&Q!
