ToyTainer Games Center Fold N'Go (review)

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


ToyTainer Games Center Fold 'N Go (available at Target)

ToyTainer has created a great way to help your kids stay organized, while at the same time still allowing them to have some fun. That means clean-up time no longer has to be a drag (for you or your child).  These toys are also storage units, so when your child is done filling it up, it can be folded nice and neat, with the toys still in it, and stored away.


The Toy Tainer Games Center Fold N' Go is available in the toy section at Target, for $19.99.  You can see from the picture above, that right out of the box it is easy to handle for your child.  This is how it looks folded in thirds. The handle on top allows for it to be carried with ease, and the toys neatly tucked inside can then be thoughtfully stored away.  Ours, in the picture above, is in the process of being unfolded, so we can show you how easy it is to set up.

These two hooks are easy on, easy off, & sturdy enough to hold your Fold N' Go in place.

Easy assembly, long length.
This is prior to the basketball hoop being hooked up (which is also very easy to do).
Once you open the Game Center Fold N' Go, you will find two sturdy, plastic hooks.  Those can go on a bedroom door, closet door, or anywhere you feel it is appropriate. Ours are shown hanging on the closet bar.

The blue strap at the top wraps through to securely hold the hoop in place.
It is directly over the basket to make storage time, fun time.
The basketball hoop attaches with sturdy Velcro, and then the fun begins.

Larger dog already in the bottom, the smaller dog making his way through.

And he maaaaaaaaaade it!!  Three point shot, perfect landing. :)

Cheechaw was the first to go in the basket. He is the beloved family favorite dog that my son won in an amusement park game a few years ago. My son and his furry stuffed blue friend have been inseparable every since that day. Trust me, this dog has been a lot of places, so it was no surprise he was selected first as the basket tester. He's a pretty good sized dog too, and he fit in the basket (and folded up in the kit) just fine.

There are lots of pockets in the Games Center Fold N' Go.
Here you can see the full-sized pencil case  stored on the bottom-left.
You can see in the bottom left that a full-sized pencil box is in one of the pockets.  The pockets are various shapes and sizes, with the ones on the bottom holding the larger-sized items. The pockets that are higher, are smaller for little items you don't want to get lost.

What a great idea to get your child used to cleaning up their toys and have fun doing it! No kids here but can not imagine any parent of small children not wanting this.

Brian Miller said...

ha. add a bit of fun to clean up...
that might actually make it happen you know....

Elsie said...

What a cute idea. I would have loved one of these for my boys when they were younger.

WOW! That is way bigger than it looks, and it's a cleanup GAME to boot. Perfect for little boys.

Lawna Noe said...

My boys could so use this in their room. Plus, I bet they would love the basketball hoop!

mail4rosey said...

I thought that too! You can bring it out specifically for clean up time, and then when it's full close it up and store what's in it. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy (so my son likes to say). :)

Theresa Mahoney said...

We need better organization products in my daughter's room. This looks like a really neat option!

Growing Up Madison said...

That is such a great idea. Does it come in other colors as well. I need one of these for my boys room. Thanks for the review.

Candy Olivares said...

What a cool toy/toy keeper! This would be handy for the boy's room!

mail4rosey said...

They have a princess castle for girls, and a doll house play n store too. In fact, it might not be a bad idea to put a pic of those in the review so people can see them!!

Self Sagacity said...

Love the stow and go! When I look for toys I always think about how they will store too. :-)

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

What a great way for kids to pack up their toys for the road. And, also keep them organized.

I love organizational ideas that are fun for kids. Not that it seems to help my kids clean up enough, but I keep hoping.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

That's a quick and easy way for kids to do some clean-up. It might even be fun for them with the whole make-a-basket angle!

Amanda Her said...

I love this! My son needs this as we sometimes have issues at night when it's time to clean up. Making it fun would really help us out!

Michelle H said...

Anything to keep toys off the floor is a plus in my book. Glad you liked it.

What a fun way to get kids to pick up their toys! We need to try this for my 3 year old.

My children could have used this when they were younger. They did not like to clean. Come to think of it, it is still a good idea. :)

Ave T said...

I haven't seen play n'store toys before, but they are perfect solution for keeping things from getting messy. I'm sure my little niece would love ToyTainer Princess Castle Fold N'Store or the doll house. Thanks for a great review!

BrettBMartin said...

We have some ToyTainer items as well. LOVE them. My daughter brings her little Palace Pets in hers everywhere!

JackieJacks said...

This thing is awesome! It would be great for our blow-up pool in the yard. We have endless little water toys that need to be packed up and then folded up to be stored in the garage! It looks so easy to unpack!

I like that idea. I like how it comes in both a boys and a girls version as well.

Where were these when my boys were little? I would have loved one or more of these as I was forever picking up or pleading with them to pick up their stuff.

Christina Shirley said...

Love this idea! My little monster hates cleaning up, so this could be a big helper!

MommyB said...

Love the assembly and that there are different versions. Will have to check this out for my girls.

Krystal Butherus said...

My girls would love the pink edition of this! I would totally get them one for their doll house people!

How cute is this! I love anything that helps me stay organized. I also loves items that hang on closet doors and are out of sight.

becca said...

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

You could take this with you on trips too.... just roll up all the toys and what ever and go.
