Not JUST a Toy! True Storage Solutions for Families

Creative QT Owner, Adam Hinkle, has been known to say "Every Christmas we get what feels like a truck-load of STUFF added to our home. It can be overwhelming." That's why he and his wife Dana Sue are so passionate about designing kid products that are not just toys, but true storage solutions for families.  

There is a play + storage solution for every home within the Creative QT Collection. Take a peek at all our favorite ways that Creative QT products help declutter homes and encourage families to Make Time Together.

Not JUST a Toy! True Storage Solutions for Families

Stuff 'n Sit Storage Bean Bags

Our iconic Stuff 'n Sit stuffed animal storage bean bag is the #1 selling kid's bean bag on Amazon for a reason ... it was the original! Stuffed animals are like Goldfish crackers for some kids - excessively addictive. It starts off with a few favorites, and then before you know it you can't even see the floor of the room anymore! If your home is overflowing with stuffed animals, the Stuff 'n Sit is a stylish, functional and kid-friendly storage solution that families across America love.

The Stuff 'n Sit is available in two sizes and five beautiful patterns. The Standard size (right in below picture) holds 50+ stuffed animals, and the Extra Large size (left in picture) holds 90+ stuffed animals! Not sure if you've got enough furry friends to fill a bag? It's also perfect for fort building supplies, favorite blankets, pillows and more.

Still not convinced? Not only does the Stuff 'n Sit store away the stuffed animals, it is also a super comfy chair! Made from soft and durable cotton canvas, machine washable, and sporting a convenient handle, this bean bag is the perfect spot to lounge! The extra long zipper also means that tidying up and retrieving the critters is a manageable job even for younger kids.

Peel 'n Stick Baseplates

LEGO storage must be one of the top ten most discussed toy related problems in the world! Every parent struggles to keep those tiny bricks organized, and worst of all, we've all experienced a LEGO-related-foot-injury! Peel 'n Stick Baseplates enable you to turn furniture such as coffee tables, storage units, and containers into building stations. Here's a few examples, click the title to see the full blog post with step by step instructions:

Funfied City Play Rug 

The Funfield City Play Rug itself offers little in the form of decluttering, but the quality of the rug is so good that you can leave it on the floor permanently. Made from super soft nylon pile, with a skid proof latex backing, this rug is made to withstand all the hot wheels and trains that your little one will roll across it.

During the day it is the focal point for imaginative play, with cars, trains and play figures prompting endless creative play. At night it can be left out, with the toys safely stored in baskets nearby. It can be easily rolled up and stored away for safe keeping.
