Toy Organizers: Toy organizers are slightly different from toy boxes but serve the same purpose for kids’ storage. Rather than a standard toy box that opens from the top, organizers usually take the place of boxes or bins on shelves. They can also have adjacent drawers or shelves. Organizers are accessible to your child so they can get the toy they want to play with easily. Toy organizers are made of wood, plastic, or cloth so be sure to consider which material you prefer.

Toy Boxes: These have been around for a long time and serve as a place for your child’s toys when he or she is not using them. It is one of the most common methods to choose for toy storage in the home. Toy boxes are perfect for the dolls, trucks, animals, and other figurines that your child plays with frequently because they can easily access them when needed. As long as your toy box is in a convenient place in your home, kids can quickly put them away as well. Some toy boxes also act as benches for your child to sit and play on. For this type of furniture, you can pick between wooden, plastic, metal or cloth so think about what would be best in your home and maybe ask your child which they prefer.

Having useful toy storage in place is helpful for growing toddlers and equally as helpful for pre-teens and teens that begin purchasing other toys. For toddler girls, you might be tired of stepping on dolls or stuffed animals, while boys might leave little Legos, trucks, and trains on the floor for you to step on. When you have the right storage for toys, you can begin teaching and educating your child on the importance of putting them away. As your children grow older, it might be puzzle pieces and board games that need to be stored somewhere when not in use. You have a lot of options from toy boxes to organizers in addition to bins. Regardless of your preference, Wayfair definitely has you covered! Let’s look at some of the different types of toy storage for your kids’ bedroom, the living room, or the basement.

Toy Storage Ideas For Living Room

– Trina, La La Lovely At our house, we have a little bit of toy storage in almost every room of the house- EXCEPT OUR KIDS BEDROOMS- because toys inevitably seem seep into every space. In our great room, we have a couple of old wooden boxes on shelves where a few toys are kept. In our backyard we have one of those big boxes for outdoor toys and I love that thing. In the kitchen, I’ve designated a drawer to crayons & art supplies and we also have a little “play” kitchen in the real kitchen which I love because it really occupies the kids while we cook & clean. Only their “kitchen” toys are allowed here and I find it’s really important to keep certain toys in certain areas if things are to stay organized. In my bedroom, I keep a small basket under my nightstand to corral “left” toys & books into. When it fills up, we take it to our main toy area and clear it out. Our upstairs loft, which is basically a family room, is the main toy area. Our boys’ bedrooms are right off of it so we don’t keep any toys in their bedrooms, which has been LIFE-CHANGING. Their rooms are so easy to keep clean now that there are no toys in there. They bring toys into their rooms to play every day, but when they clean up, the toys go into the baskets in the hutch in our family room. This room gets trashed pretty much every day because it’s their main play area but the baskets keep things organized. (And I’m a bit of a Nazi about how many toys they can keep in the house at once. We have a couple of bins of toys in the garage so the boys can swap out toys every couple of months or take out something special every now & then but we try not to keep very many toys in the house.) – Lauren Liess, Pure Style Home

Perhaps you aren’t able to dedicate a whole separate room to a playroom, but you still want to have a space for your kids to just be kids in. We’re here to help with ideas for creating a multifunctional playroom in the living room. We used a round play table in the middle of the room that can easily double as a coffee table for family room functions. The table doesn’t have any sharp corners, which makes it safer for kids at play. We used a boldly patterned storage bench that provides both storage, extra seating and another space to play on. Instead of a large, bulky sofa, we chose a small settee that leaves plenty of floor space to play on and wall space for toy storage. A big, colorful rug makes a soft space for kids to play on and adds global style for the adults to admire. Tucked in the corner, we put a fabulous teepee tent for kids to play in and along the walls, we added ample storage to tuck toys out of the way when mom and dad want to use the living room.

Storage Bins & Bags: If you are in need of toy storage but not looking for a large piece of furniture such as a toy box or bookshelf, storage bins are also an option. While they usually don’t provide as much room for toys, they are very functional. Often storage bins or bags sit on top of a dresser or night stand and can be a place for the toys your kids use the most. The bins are an excellent place to put their favorite toys in the rare event they aren’t using them. Wayfair carries top brands like 3 Sprouts and Winsome to help you find the storage bins you need in your kid’s room.

This great toy organization idea works well for families with multiple kids who need something that will fit in nicely with the regular home décor. It makes use of the cube-style toy organizer idea, with larger bins located at the bottom. What makes this stand out among other toy storage ideas is the way that the back wall of it is painted in different colors. The primary white color makes the unit look uniform, but children will know which shelves are theirs by the colors on the inside. Assign each child a different color and personalize this for the number of kids you have.
