Stuffed Animal Storage Ideas – Create Your Own Little Zoo

Stuffed animals may be cute and cuddly and both kids and adults love them but finding proper storage for them often proves to be a problem. You want to use as little space as possible so putting them all in a big box seems like a practical idea but you also want to display them in a nice way so that idea goes down the drain as quickly as it came. Maybe you’ll have more luck with one of these ideas:

Another fun idea is to use storage bands on the walls. They hold toys up on the wall and they can adapt and stretch depending on the size of the toys or objects that you place there.

Gt all the toys, stuffed animals included, organized on shelves. Open shelves are the most practical in playrooms and kids’ rooms. Small toys can go in baskets or bins and the big ones can be displayed on the shelves.

Instead of baskets, you can also use small buckets. Make two rows on the wall, somewhere in a corner or wherever you can find some free space. You can even label them.{found on blogger}.

A simple and practical solution is to use a laundry basket or bin like this one. You can see all the toys stored in there so the kids can identify the one they want and take it out.

A similar example with a slightly different design. You can build your own toy storage bin from scrap pieces of wood and twine or cable.
