One Step Ahead has Provided Us with Another Solution!


This is a plastic bag full of stuffed animals...


No really, it's a plastic bag, lol. Not an optimal place to store my son's favorite stuffed animals, but he's got too many to keep them randomly placed about his room.


This is a solution that makes everyone happy. It's an Up & Away Hammock, sold at One Step Ahead and it's so easy to install, and very effective for getting those stuffed animals up and out of the bag. This hammock helps with keeping the room looking good too, while still allowing my son to have easy access to his toys when he wants to play. SOLUTIONS! That's the word One Step Ahead is using this year, and they easily live up to it over and over again. This hammock is a great solution.


The product itself is easy to install...super easy in fact.


You simply put those four screws into the wall (dry wall shells included, in case you need them) and hang your hammock. Then you arrange your animals the way you want them.


The hammock holds a LOT of stuffed animals.

We love the simplistic effectiveness of our Up & Away Hammock from One Step Ahead. No more plastic bags makes for one happy mama and son duo. The critters look pretty happy too, don't you think?

I'm considering getting two more of these. They're less than $10, so we definitely COULD. I'd like to tier them right down the wall, one...two...three. I think the look would be fun, and then all of the animals would be up and away.  The benefits of doing so, are plentiful to be sure, and I know my son would love it (he's a stuffed animal nut, that's an undisputable fact). I love easy solutions & I love One Step Ahead.

  19. Oh that really does look handy. My Mom would like it coz she's into the whole sorting things out but she would be too OC about the dust. Its the downfall of living in a tropical country. We get dustmites by the dozen.

  27. Broxton used to have a TON... Now, I always say NO when he asks for one. Toooo many. I have said I don't want Savannah to have them, but she already has a growing collection.
    This would be a great help!

  28. This is such a great idea to get any toy off of the messy floor and use vertical storage. Love it

  29. I love this hammock storage. We've always struggled with how to store 'stuffed friends'. This allows easy access and getting them off the floor.

  45. I could have used one of those for my son Isaak. Last year he handed all of his stuffed animals to me and said, "I'm done with these." :(

  46. Valentina has a massive collection of stuffys, I've seen these hammocks and thought about getting one. They are a great price :-)

    I hope you and family are doing well and enjoying the great weather. It looks like Spring might be early here, it's been warming up.. so that's great xox ♡

  47. This would definitely come in handy in our house. Right now, we are storing the army of stuffed animals under Allison's bed. This is a cuter way for her to actually have them stored and SEE them all at the same time.
