    Interesting idea. But I don’t think it’s really a good one. What about all the holes from screwing them on or the marks on the walls from the toys banging/scratching against them?

    It’s called wall putty and touch up paint job. Holes in walls don’t have to be permanent. This is a great idea for those little odds and end toys that get stepped on. Put them at your child’s height and they can put them away themselves. Ha.

  • Actually your idea to organize your child’s toys by type with all the “pieces, people and props” where they can see them is a great idea for promoting creative play and building language. Often as a speech pathologist, I go to homes and see all the toys and parts piled into toy bins where kids can’t readily access the pieces needed to build their creative theme. You certainly can play with a barn without the animals but it helps to have a few to get the play going! Be sure to always have play people to get the conversation going. On my website, http://www.playonwords.com, I have lots of suggestions for play to promote language development.

  • Very nice, children won’t dump out every container searching for something.
