IKEA is king of toy storage. Where would we be without their bins and baskets, their drawers, shelves, and cubbies to hold all our kids’ stuff? If you have kids who have things (as they are wont to do), then I’m sure you have heard (or own multiple versions of) the TROFAST storage system. The lightweight, pull-out plastic bins have been a top seller for years, and other than colors coming and going, the design hasn’t changed much … until now.

There’s a new TROFAST bin in town, folks.

TROFAST now has mesh bins!

Plastic bins are no longer the only option for the TROFAST system! The new mesh bins come in green and black and fit all the standard TROFAST bases.

Why is this great news? Because, while the colorful plastic bins are great for little kids, they may not work as well when kids get into their teen years. But now, if you’ve got a TROFAST system and an upcoming tween or teen, keep the base and just swap out the drawers for the more grownup mesh versions!
