Simple Playroom
I am not a minamilist, but highly inspired by you ladies and am working my way that way every week!! So maybe soon i can share my home pics :D But for now, this is the one room i have been pretty anal about making sure it is minimal...because my house gets outta control w/ too many toys!

So here is what i did, i have 2 big blue boxes- 1 for stuffy's/dolls and 1 for anything super hero!

then i have the wooden rack w/ 4 shoebox totes w/ snapping lids:
small figures
baby toys
misc small toys

then i have a larger snapping lid tote on the bottom of that rack and that has dishes.

Then i have the wheely bug, slide, bilibos and train table (which drives me nuts) and kitchen. I need to go thru the books on the shelf but thats it. I also have a box of blocks in the living room upstairs and a small box of toys and book shelf (small).

This is a view of half the playroom. I was bored so I dragged all the toys to one side to photograph them.
A close up of the left side-cubbies have:a few random toys, bin of balls, pirate chest, a wood car, bin of bean bags, pink drum, empty basket, board puzzles, bin of tegu blocks, xylophone. To the right is a few larger puzzles, latch board, and gear board. Then the 3-drawer holds: puzzles in pencil pouches, miscellaneous, baby rattles. Then 4 large stacked totes are: duplos, blocks, train, dress-ups. Then dollhouse, and 2 bean bag chairs on top of wooden rocking boat. The 2 flat storage bins are kept in the playroom as boats/cribs/beds/open-ended toys.
Rocking chair, with basket of stuffies above it. Playhut, cradle inside. Cradle has 6 Disney princess dolls. Kitchen, and bouncy horse. There's an easel that's not in the picture.

I'm glad you posted this, because I've been looking for somewhere to post my pictures! Almost everything in the cubby I've been thinking about putting away. Leaveing out only the blocks, train, dress-ups, rocking boat, stuffies, playhut, horse and kitchen. They also have two strollers and a shopping cart that were being used when I took the pictures. I've worked SO HARD to get it down to this point but now... it still looks overwhelming. There's a closet full of more stuff but they can't reach it and hardly play with it, so it will be next to go. I think yours looks pretty simple

Re: Simple Playroom
I just realized how bad it looks. Disregard the Easter eggs thrown around, the cat, the baby, the cat toys, and the golf club. The eggs and golf clubs are in the donate bin. Got tired of stepping on them. And talking about it made me realize that I should go up there tonight and grab some stuff to ditch! And I usually have the playroom better organized than that! I've lost a lot of steam because we are moving in 6 weeks so I've foundother rooms are more important to focus on.

Fun! Our playroom is very simple. I've been ruthless. What you don't see are a few stuffies, bell instrument, and 2 puzzles that are in the hallway. Out are some books, some gnomes, wood blocks, & some balls. She just plays with whatever. She loves playing with the dogs. :)

Re: Simple Playroom
Wanted to add that I do want a few more musical things... But otherwise I'm very happy. And lo seems happy, too :-)
