Any parent will tell you: small, creative toys (like train sets, Legos®, Playmobil®, etc.) are a seemingly necessary part of your children’s play. But have you ever stepped on one in the middle of the night? Here’s an attractive and modern solution to a very old problem that makes it incredibly easy for your child to pick up his or her toys.
Sarah Kirk, the Seattle-based owner of Swoop, is a mother of two and understands the toy dilemma. Children love to spread their toys on the floor, create masterpieces from small, easy-to-lose pieces, and don’t always put back everything when they’re done. Thirty years ago Sarah's grandmother created a toy bag for her brother’s Lego® collection and thirty years later her mother made a new bag for her son. Sarah, a graphic designer, has taken this simple yet uber-practical toy bag and made it modern.
Swoop bags are offered in six colors with names like Sea Monster, Bubble Gum and Fire Engine. They are made from 100% sturdy cotton canvas and are 44 inches in diameter. Swoop bags are $45.00 each and may be purchased on their website.
