Fun storage for kids: review on Boon and Loom

With 3 kids in the house I always have toys all over the place. We have boxes, bags, crates, you name it, we have it everywhere filled with toys.
I wanted to review some fun and cool storage options for the kids toys and I had the privilege to review a pop bin from Loom and the oval animal bag from Boon.

A little more info on Boon:

Who is Boon?
It's funny how such a simple thing can lead to so much. It all began with a messy toddler bathtub. Designer Rebecca Finell's wheels started turning and the Frog Pod was born.
But the problem solving didn't stop there. She had lots of ideas for other parenting innovations so she sought out a partner, Ryan Fernandez—who could create a successful business—and together they founded Boon Inc. Today Boon offers a wide range of products that help parents all over the world.
We're committed to creating nothing but the most innovative gear—and keeping it affordable. Our design studio is always in motion, tackling one parenting challenge after another. And don't forget our commitment to quality and safety.

We have lots of cuddly toys or stuffed animals in our house, some still from when Lisa was a baby, I know,... that's nearly 11 years ago. There's only so many you can put on a shelf so the oval animal bag is the perfect solution for all of them.
This oversized, plush bag is covered with large, zippered windows made out of transparent, durable mesh. Children can fill the bag with stuffed animals of all sizes, and then use the Animal Bag as a soft seat. Made from high quality, breathable fabrics, the Animal Bag is machine washable, or it can be dry-cleaned.
The kids were so excited when we received this bag, I've never seen them look for toys so quick. I'm not sure how many cuddly toys we have in the bag, but I can tell you it's lots and the bag is not even full yet! 
The kids love to sit on the bag (Lisa just told me to write down it's soooo comfortable, so I better put it in the review!), Abby loves to roll off the bag. It's a multi-functional storage unit and a soft seat in one! 
The zippers are really easy to open and Abby loves to take out and put in her bunnies.
We absolutely love this bag!!!
If you've read my blog in the past, you know we love Boon in our house, see here!
You might not realize but Boon also has a clothing and jewelry line! The designs are amazing!

The second storage item we received was the pop bin from Loom.
A little more info on Loom:

Loom was founded in the spring of 2003 by Johanna Leestma LaFleur. Johanna has been playing with fabric, print, and color since her early childhood in Chicago¹s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Her experiences living in Senegal, Sweden, Thailand and Hong Kong fed her interest in textile and pattern.
As a result, her designs for Loom reflect a quirky mix of no-nonsense Northern European simplicity, spunky California ruggedness, and a rich spice-route inspired palette.

I was immediately drawn to the pop bins, I love the color combinations, the design, just the whole thing. We use the pop bin as storage for the "harder" toys, little cars, little people, balls,...
The pop bin arrived as a flat packet, and when we opened the packaging it popped up, hence the name pop bin! The pop bin used to be in the family room but Abby is playing more and more in her room, so we moved it up there. The pop bin has big canvas handles so very easy to move around.
The pop bins are made of 100% cotton canvas. There's no sharp corners or edges which might hurt kids.
Loom not only does these amazing pop bins in several color combinations and sizes, they also have amazing bags! Here are some of their examples!
What do you think of this Marsupial bag? They come in several color combinations:

Or the Bandicoot? Again, several colors to pick from.

You really should check it out!!
Boon & Loom, thank you so much for letting us review the Animal bag and the Pop bin!!

I really love the Boon Animal Bags! I need 1 or 2 of them! My MIL buys stuffed animals all the time. We've got a zoo...and where am I supposed to put them?

Great review! Thanks!
