Pink storage boxes, containers, units and baskets
Pink storage boxes, containers and units are the perfect solution if you want a touch of pink in your bedroom but don't want to go as far as painting your walls that shade!
Many young girls adore the colour pink and if you're redecorating your daughter's bedroom, there's a good chance that she'll plead to have her walls painted this colour! But as a parent, you might not want to give in to her request; perhaps you're living in a rented house/apartment, and don't want to have to paint the walls white again when you move. Or perhaps you believe (with good reason, maybe) that your daughter will tire of pink walls eventually, and you don't want to have to go to the trouble of repainting them a more neutral shade.
Pink storage boxes, containers and units are a great solution - they're practical but feminine at the same time, and your daughter is sure to love them. They might provide a bit of an incentive for her to keep her room more tidy as well! Pink storage boxes aren't just for little girls either - they appeal to women of all ages. I know, because I'm one of them (just take a look at my avatar, and you'll see what I mean. The cat is sitting on a vintage 70s storage container/stool with a pink fluffy cushion covering the lid!). Anyway, I've taken a look on Amazon.com and found some fantastic pink storage boxes, units and baskets - see what you think!
The most economical option when it comes to storage is a mesh laundry basket or closet organiser. It might be described as a laundry basket in the listing, but it also makes a fantastic storage container for toys - furthermore, the mesh material means you can see what's in there, which is useful! The great thing about mesh laundry baskets/organisers - besides the price - is that they're collapsible and easy to clean. Whitmor's plain pop & fold laundry basket is a fab shade of bright pink and has a flexi-frame that allows it to be folded flat when not in use. Or how about Idea Nuova's Disney Princess girls' pink collapsible storage trunk, which is decorated with pictures of Cinderella, Belle and Aurora. (Measures 32.5 inches wide by 16.5 inches high and 16.5 inches deep.) Store51's Dora The Explorer pop-up mesh laundry bin is another option; this laundry bin measures 13.5" x 13.5" x 21.5".

Pink storage units
If it's a shelf unit you want rather than a basket or box, then Amazon has it covered too - as long as you don't mind assembling it yourself! I was particularly attracted to Storage Solutions' 3-cube storage unit, which can be set up in a variety of ways and can be put together without tools. It measures 13 x 13 x 39 inches when set up vertically. Storage Solutions also sells a shoe cubby, which fits 15 pairs of shoes (more if you don't mind doubling up).
Another modular option is Revur International's cube storage unit in pink and white; the inside of each module measures 11.2" high x 11.5" wide x 11.2" deep. The six storage cubes, which are made from recycled paper, can be configured in any way and other colours are also available.
