Stepped on a stray piece of Lego lately? Or maybe it was Duplo?
My personal favourite is stepping on an unidentified piece of plastic in the middle of the night when the rest of the family is blissfully asleep. With all the willpower I can muster, I have to stop myself from swearing while also aiming a few good kicks at the offending toy.
Now a clever US mum has come up with a way to prevent midnight mishaps for parents. Swoop Mini Bags are a nifty way of gathering up your children’s toy mess in one swoop. Perfect for Lego, Duplo, blocks and any little bits and pieces that find their way to all the nooks and crannies of your house.
If, like me, you have dozens of lidless Textas roaming your floor, the Swoop Mini can help. Not only effective as playmats and toy tidiers, the Swoop Mini Bags also double as storage solutions.
Like the Swoop Bag Originals, which are 56cm wider in diameter than the minis, these tough canvas bags are made of one hundred per cent cotton and are machine-washable. The drawstring cording is durable black nylon and has cord locks, so they are perfect for stowing away in the car for a visit to the grandparents. Take your pick from nine colours including Tractor Red and Jungle.
Swoop Mini Bags are priced at $24 (USD). Swoop ships worldwide.
