How to Store Space Toys
Depending on the material used, space toys could be stored in different ways and storing them properly could potentially make them last longer than they should. These are the kinds of toys that are far less likely to break and never go out of fashion. They are loved by children because of the different space-themed activities that they can weave and get. One thing you’d probably ask is how to store your child’s space toys.
As children grow older, they are more likely to lose interest in their toys and move on to different things that are appropriate for their age. They easily grow out of them and most toys take up a lot of space making it tempting to get rid of them. Some toys are heirloom-worthy and saving them for the possibility of passing them down to future generations should be worth considering.
For some parents, storing toys can be quite a problem especially if you do not have enough space at home but if you are lucky enough to be living in your forever home, storage space will never be a problem. And of course, It is certainly better to keep those toys rather than throwing them away.
Space toys are just examples of toys that are great for open-ended plays. They require maximum involvement in using the child’s imagination and of course, they are timeless. They are unlikely to go out of favour.
For future generations
If you have already sorted out the toys that you want to keep rather than disposing, then you have already thought of the best possible ways to store them at their best for the future grandkids to play with. But, the thought of seeing these toys covered in mould is the last thing you’d really want.
Toys that are made from solid hardwood last longer especially if you store them properly. Removing the dirt thru brushing is a start or wiping them with a damp cloth to remove the stains is even greater.
Wooden space toys will last long if you keep them in good condition such as not storing them in damp areas or direct sunlight. Bags with silica gel are also great in absorbing moisture and preventing mould and decay. Also, a coat of wax or oil will help the wood look great as these help moisturize.
A cotton sheet can also prevent damage once the toys are already clean. Storing them in plastic boxes will also allow air to circulate and prevent moisture build up. Don’t forget to label the boxes to make sure that you won’t rummage through them if you are looking for a specific item. It is also ideal to sort these toys and to store similar ones.
Once these toys are ready, find a perfect spot to keep and store them. Places that are somewhat dry, out of direct sunlight and doesn’t experience changes in temperature are ideal. Make sure to keep them away from pests that will surely love to feed on them.
