With the lack of space in our rapidly filling house, furniture that serves a dual purpose, or cleverly hides away all the toys and clutter is what I've been looking for at the moment, and it seems I am not alone. If the spring cleaning urge to chuck everything out doesn't take over completely then I have to find somewhere to put things - and I think I've found something to solve the problem!
Argos have two different Chad Valley Storage Play Tables - one is a Town design, the other a Castle. The idea of these is that they provide a play surface for toys that is up off the floor, so that the drawers underneath can be used to store the toys. It's not a completely original idea, but it's something that I had not looked at because it was out of our price range, as table like this are normally around £200. BUT Argos have reduced them to just £63.99!

They are a fairly large piece of furniture, measuring 104cm long, 75cm wide, and 41cm high, and there are two large drawers underneath for toy storage. The top of the play table comes in two designs - one is a castle, and the other a road layout great for playing with toy cars.
These items are Home Delivery only, so a charge of £8.95 for that will need to be added to the price, but this is still a large saving.
I'm off to fish out the tape measure to check it will fit, and to convince the other half that the toddler's christmas money should go on this rather than more toys! Wish me luck!
EDIT: If you buy before 1st Jan you can get 20% off by buying it from Homebase! Works out at £51.19 plus delivery.
