Songmics DIY Interlocking Storage Cube - Review and Giveaway


One thing that I always find as a parent is that you never have enough storage. In my house we are forever tripping over toys, and forever trying to find a place for new ones. But there is a solution. Songmics make the perfect storage unit for storing all your child's items and we were lucky enough to be sent one to review. 

The fact that the unit is a DIY kit might be enough to put off any parent with a million and one things to do. Well don't let them 3 letters put you off. It is so easy and simple to put together and it can be up and ready to be used within about half an hour. 

All the pieces come separate and come with fixings and a hammer so you just slot the pieces together. With the amount of building toys parents have to do, this is a doddle! The cubes are made from a high quality plastic sheet and do feel really strong and stable. You can also attach them to the wall if you are worried about them falling down onto your child. 




The great thing about the storage cubes are that you can build them up how ever you like. You could use all 9 at once in one place. Or you could use 6 in one place and then 3 in another. You could make it 2 cubes high, you could make it 4 cubes high. It is the perfect solution if you don't have much space and want lots of storage in different places. 

We put it together as one big piece with 3 along and 3 high. I must admit, they are a lot bigger than I thought they would be. Silly me didn't actually read the measurements and so expected them to be a lot smaller. But seen as you can make them into what ever shape you want to, we can make them fit into our home. 


I really love the design to this storage unit. The fact it is pink matches Lily's bedroom which we shall be putting it in later when we have re arranged her room. But I do always love things like this being in neutral colours such as yellows, greens, reds so it can match a variety of rooms. My favourite thing about the design though is the characters on it. They are so cute and colourful and really child friendly. 

The doors are also great. They easily open and close and have a hole as the handle. Really easy for Lily to open and no danger of trapped little fingers. 



You can store so many things in these, and they are so big that you can fit a lot of items. Though there is a maximum loading capacity of 10K. You can see from the photograph below how much you can fit inside these. 

You could store

- Clothes
- Books
- Toys
- Teddy Bears
- Blankets
- Towels
- Shoes 

We are going to be using our cubes to store clothing and shoes. I actually think it will hold more clothing than Lily's set of drawers currently do and so that is brilliant! 


You can buy this from the Songmics store on Amazon. I am sometimes am a little sceptical about buying from Amazon but I can assure you that this company is selling some quality items! You will not be disappointed with the storage cube and especially as it only costs £33.99. 

It really is the perfect storage solution. 

What would you store in your cube?
