If your little monsters can tear up a room in under 15 minutes, check out how the new P’kolino line of monstrous Mess Eaters storage units are ready to put it all back together again in a snap. And now that we can find this playful line in our local Target store, it’s even easier to stock up on the toy storage solutions that help keep parents sane.
We saw the collection introduced Toy Fair just a few weeks back, and we’re so happy it’s now available so quickly. The line consists of brightly-colored, friendly monsters that can live in your kids’ bedroom, hang out on their scooter, or sit atop their homework desk. And since they are ready to gobble up toys, stuffed animals, and any other trinkets that seem to follow my kids around, I’m happy to have them around.
My favorite unit is the generous Toy Trunk storage bin (shown above in green) which can hold a bunch of stuff. Made of soft-sided cloth and a lid that won’t pinch fingers, I love how cute it would look paired up with a couple of the Monster Storage Bins we introduced to you last fall. At just over two-feet wide, this toy bin is easy enough for kids to drag to the mess using the thick rope “arms” and then slide back against the wall.
The Mess Eaters line also includes a mini Mess Eater Travel Pal that can hang from a backpack, handlebars, or even a stroller for the little ones. Okay, so it’s like a fanny pack without the need for a fanny. Kids will love it.
If your child’s desk looks anything like mine, the Mess Eater Desk Caddy will help them clean up with lots of slots for pens, pencils, scissors, rulers, and markers. Even one of my favorite gifts for toddlers, the P’kolino Book Buggee, has been “monsterized” to complement the Mess Eaters line.
One thing I especially appreciate about this line are the bright bold colors that would look equally great in both boys’ and girls’ rooms. While the pink Mess Eaters are going to be more popular with girls, they are in a bold shade that reminds me of these cool pink t-shirts for boys (and girls) that we just featured. Because if there is one thing I’ve learned: messy playrooms know no gender.
