Toy storage options to help you reclaim your home
Find new ways to access, organize, and reduce kiddie clutter.
There is no arguing that your life changes overnight when you become a parent. In addition to the added responsibilities, there’s the whole question of what to do with all the stuff. And it only gets worse as they get older, and the toys get bigger. Without the right storage toys can overrun your space. The best way to tackle the issues involved with all the toys in your home is to organize.
Traditional lidded toy bins might hide the mess, but aren’t effective in organizing. Larger single sized bins can lead to endless digging and eventual frustration of not being able to locate items. We’ve selected some great toy organizers that will make your home feel less cluttered, and will encourage peace and order.
Let ’em drip dry. Amazon
This is a great solution for your children’s water or bath toys. The hanging mesh bags allow for flexible storage and also for drying to ensure mold doesn’t accumulate in toys. Although intended for bathroom use, these storage bags could function in other areas of the home as well. Installation hardware is included with bins which includes suction cups for smooth walls, and a tacky hook for textured walls. Pack includes two mesh organizers: one in a bear shape and one basic white.
Roll out and get playing. Amazon
This toy storage is completely movable and stackable, which is a huge benefit in so many ways. Each basket can be snapped on top of the other, and the cart has four wheels. The bins are offered in bright primary colors, pastels, and neutral tones, so they’ll fit any decor. The design allows for easy access into each bin, and the wheels allow for easy movement not just between rooms, but on and out of closets or other storage spaces. Please note: heavier items should be placed in the bottom bins when stacking.
Tons of space. Amazon
When you need a lot of storage right away, the Humble Crew organizer is a great solution. This storage system comes with 16 storage bins which are all removable for easy, grab and go playing. The bins are all made from BPA- and phthalate-free plastic and they are easy to wipe or rinse clean. The height of the bin is designed for preschool/toddler aged children. Angled for easy reach, toys are always accessible without having to remove the entire bin.
Make a doll nest. Amazon
This hammock-style storage system is a great solution for lightweight plush toys. The system comes with wall mounting hooks, but note they must be used in the corner of a room, or at an angle with the hooks given sufficient spacing. They can be placed at any height that best suits the child and/or the room set up. This storage hammock is essentially a circle shaped sheer net, which works as the items are visible to the child, which makes things easier to find and also adds to the overall room decor.
