Clear Candy Tubes for Small Toy Storage

Here is a great way to organize and re-cycle while doing so. Those long clear tubes that candy (i.e. M & M's) come in provide great storage for small toy pieces and can make them more readily available for your child's play time. They're perfect for the small Legos; store them by color, shape, size - whatever works for you. It makes those Lego projects so much easier to construct without having to dig through piles of all the different pieces.


Also another perfect example of what can be stored in them is the myriad Polly Pockets clothing and accessories. Those pieces turn up everywhere after my granddaughter leaves. Now I'm teaching both her and her brother, how much easier it is to enjoy their toys, if they take a few minutes to store them for the next time they come over.

We use those little tubes to hold quarters for doing laundry when we go on vacation. They are just the right size, and you don't have to dig in the bottom of purses and pockets for spare change!
