A great toy storage system will have multiple shelves inside. Perfect for playrooms, each bright and colorful toy storage unit can hold blocks, art supplies, books, dolls and any other items that a child might have. They are easily detachable, so children can take the toys down, store them and put them right back up again (in theory of course). These are also the perfect toy storage units for holiday gifts. You can buy them ahead of time and have them waiting for the gifts to arrive.
Toy storage boxes come in all shapes and sizes. Some are made out of wood with large, wide openings for easy storage of larger toys and smaller toys that need to fit into the storage box itself. These are great for storing up holiday decorations that need to be out of the way until the next holiday. They can also be used for storing up lawn equipment during the winter and spring cleaning supplies during the summer. There are even toy storage boxes designed specifically to house sports equipment like golf clubs, tennis rackets and basketballs.
Another type of toy storage box are woven baskets. These types of toy storage baskets can be found just about anywhere – from the toy stores, through online catalogs and even some of the grocery stores. The woven baskets are large enough to hold most, if not all, of a child’s toys. The big plus is that you do not have to keep cradles and teddy bears stored away because they will likely get lost. Children will simply put their toys into the woven baskets and that’s it – they are then just as safe as if they had kept their toys in plain sight in the toy boxes.
There are also toy storage bins that are made specifically for storing stuffed animals. If your child has a lot of stuffed animals, these can be perfect for storing up those prized pets during the off-season when your kids are no longer permitted to have them. Stuffed animals make great gifts and you can purchase a ton of different kinds. You can also find toy storage boxes that are fashioned after cars, trucks or boats.
A final option for toy storage are shoe racks. These are perfect for both storing up shoes and for hanging on the walls. A great tip for toy storage is to utilize space that would normally be in the closets, such as around the head of the bed, the closet doors and the bottom of the dresser. You can also buy hooks at your local Wal-Mart to hang up the stuffed animals and shoes.
You can easily accessorize your toy storage ideas by adding some colorful and unique wall art. One great idea is a mural that includes a couple of your kids favorite cartoon characters. It is also nice to include pictures of places that your family has traveled to on trips or to accent your living space. Adding a few throw pillows under the couch can also add a soft and welcoming touch to your toy storage. By making small changes to your living space, you can easily accessorize your toy storage with fun accessories!
