InterMetroÂ® Kids' Shelving
Love this purchase
When I was looking for a shelving system to replace my bakers rack that had no room, I came to Container Store online and purchased this unit. It is perfect as you can tell from my photos.

*Exactly* what I wanted/needed
We just moved two months ago, and have been looking for a good solution for storing my son's toys. I have numerous 3-drawer carts for the little stuff (Legos, Trios, etc.), but the bigger stuff is so much harder to store. This is *perfect*. The bin/basket is wonderful and holds ALL of his plush buddies - that's a huge deal. It was incredibly easy to put together and required no tools. (Note: The poles have an adjustment bolt at the bottom, so if you have uneven floors, no worries.) I couldn't be more thrilled with this. My family room went from chaos to contained in a day. A true miracle. Wish I'd had it in the last house.
Added note: I wanted the deep bins pictured here on the upper shelves and scoured the store to find them ... I'm pretty sure I nailed it with the deep sweater box. They fit three across on the shelves and are nice and deep to hold almost anything. They're also reasonably priced ($9.99) - a perfect complement to the InterMetro shelving, especially if you're using it for toy storage.

Organizing the kids
I saw this set-up in one of the organization ads for kids, and I thought that it might work. We looked at it in the store, and with some convincing to the hubby, we took it home. I picked up the bins pictured on the middle shelf for the middle and bottom shelves, and use the top and the top shelf for games. The "bin" shelf for stuffed animals and larger toys has been great. Love that. The only drawback is that the plastic bins don't slide easily on the shelves - which could be a little frustrating to little ones when cleaning up. My husband has been pleasantly surprised with the organization. It's sturdy and functional. If you want to hide the shelves, there is also a cover that you can put over it.

Best Shelf EVER
I bought 2 of these shelves, one for my 2 year old daughter's room and one for my 3 year old sons room. We had no shelving at all in my daughter's room other than her changing table so there were toys and dolls and baskets everywhere. EVERYTHING fit on this shelf with extra room! All the dolls and stuffed animals went in the basket and the bins and baskets of toys went on the shleves with room to spare. We even put the diapers and wipes, box of clothes she had out grown and her old bouncy seat on here. Took less than 30 minutes to put together and is super sturdy. She has since tried to climb up the shelves and it actually didn't fall on her. TG!
