Book and toy storage and Purim

How to keep all the books and toys organized around here, seems to be an eternal question. Every time I encounter another pile, the question presents itself anew.  But Purim time is a good time to experiment with  different options because the stores are suddenly full of all kinds of baskets and mini-hampers and other interesting things, which are good for mishlach manos but also good for picture books and box cars, etc.  Last year I picked up a whole bunch of colorful mini-hampers, cloth with a simple wooden frame, which were pretty inexpensive, just the right size and the best option I have used to date.  But after some heavy use, a few of them are beginning to show signs of wear, so I am looking forward to seeing what's out there this year.  Wicker baskets are very attractive too and  are great for storing toys and general play.  But while I am on the subject of children's books storage and display ideas, here are a few really wonderful looking ones, a book sling shelf and rain gutter bookshelves.  What great ideas and they look fairly simple to implement too, now I just have to figure out how to say rain gutter in hebrew, if they even sell these type here:)
