This braided seagrass basket set was an instant hit with our little testers (one basket each, hooray!) as well as the grown-ups. With “mess” and “stuff” embroidered on the pair – we love the ochre yellow shade, but you can also pick from red or black – they measure D 27 x H 21cm and D 35cm x H 30cm respectively and we were amazed at how much each could fit in.
The handles are a very welcome touch, and both our testers enjoyed lugging around their baskets stuffed with soft toys and plastic farm animals independently – without any concerns from us that they would snap at any time.
Open storage like this is excellent for toy rotation, so if your child has more toys than they know what to do with, it’s handy to swap them around every couple of weeks so they can really make the most of what they have. It’s also a good way of spotting which toys are no longer in favour and deserve to be passed on to someone who will play with them.
Sturdy, stylish enough to warrant a place in any living room and with a deceptively large space for storing anything from toy cars to Duplo bricks, these tick all the boxes for us.
