Storing Playmobil toys - Page 2
Just dont mix everythig in a small container if its too deep because that might make it hard for the kids to find the small pieces.

I found a good solution that I thought I'd share. My 2.5 year old plays mostly in the living room and I realized today that we have a side-board that is underutilized for storage. So, I moved out the stuff in there and are going to use that space for toys. 2/3's will be taken by Playmobil. I binned up the people, the plants (we have so many plants!), the furniture, and the small bits and have them stored in the side board.
I am a little worried that the easy access for the 2.5 year old may be a bit much to keep up with.... I'll post back with our progress. ;-)
On thing I've learned if you're going to have big bins of anything (Lego, Playmobil) lay out a sheet for them to dump it on. That way when it's time to clean up you just gather the corners and dump it.
We used to sort playmobil, but the reality is, they often needed cows and the jeep with the castle. I stopped sorting the little pieces because sadly my kids are not as anal as I am :)
