With a new baby on the way, I am on a mission to get our house organized. And slowly but surely, I am making great progress. I’ve done a lot of research and tried a lot of things to get myself organized, and now I am sharing the best of the best. These are the 10 Kids Toy Storage Solutions You Need.
Kids Toy Storage Solutions
I have broken my top kids toy storage solutions down by toy type to help you organize based on what clutters your floor the most. The links in this post are affiliate links, which means I make a small percent of any sales to support my blog. But it doesn’t affect the price for you or my recommendations.
Small Toys Storage
For small toys I can’t get enough bins. They make clean up easy, even little kids can help! Storage bins are the perfect solution for figurines, race cars and all of those loose toys kids accumulate.
Kids’ Toy Storage Organizer – 12 Plastic Bins Various Colors Available
These plastic bins come in several colors (primaries, pinks and even white) and make pick up easy. Plus because they are angled, kids can see what is in each bucket when they are ready to play and to clean up. A classic toy organizer that just works.
ClosetMaid Cube Organizer – Various Sizes & Shapes Available
I also LOVE cube storage. I just bought this 6-cube storage for the baby’s closet (and the pink bins below). I love these cubes because they are so versatile – I turned mine on its side for kid-height storage. You can get them in various cube counts (2, 3, 6, 9, etc) and then you can fill some or all the spaces with bins in your choice of colors.
Fabric Cube Storage Bins (Set of 6) Foldable Baskets with Handles – Various Colors Available
I even use a 2-cube system like this for my daughters’ put away box now.
Art Supplies Storage
My budding artists need easy storage for all of their supplies. The first place to add storage is at the source – beneath the easel! No reason to waste that space when you can get an easel with built-in shelves and storage beneath. Smart and practical storage — plus it looks nice. (Comes in three color options.)
Two Sided A-Frame Paint Easel, Chalk Board & Magnetic Dry Erase – w/ Storage, Supply Holder & Paper Feed
Still need more arts and crafts storage? I love these rolling carts with tons of drawers to fill with supplies. I had one for my craft room, back before I had to give up a craft room to make room for kids! Tuck it in the corner, and roll it over to a table when it is time to create.
10-Drawer Organizer Cart with Drawers – Various Colors Available
Although this isn’t really a storage solution, this is my favorite art frame for displaying kids’ projects. Just open the latch on the front and add the latest art work. I just add the newest art on top until it gets full.

Stuffed Animals Storage
Raise your hand if your kids have too many stuffed things. Me! While I was able to get them to part with some before the holidays, they still have a ton. My favorite solution is a large canvas bin. Easy clean up and they can dig out any stuffed friend they want with ease. And how cute are the animal faces?! (12 animals to choose from.)

Or turn that collection of stuffed things into furniture with the Stuffed Animal Storage Bean Bag Chair. Now that’s smart storage! (Available in three colors.)

Kids Books Storage
One thing I can’t say no to is more books. So book storage is a must. The sling book cases are perfect for kids because they can see the covers of the books they want to read, and then they can put them away. The bookcase below comes in several color options to fit your decor.
Tot Tutors Kids Book Rack Storage Bookshelf – Various Colors Available
If floor space is at a premium, try using books as part of the decor with these floating bookshelves.

Kid Friendly Labels
I like to label my kids toy storage. This helps me know at a glance what goes where, and also helps my husband so he can clean up too 😉 For my preschooler, it is great site word practice too. I love the look of mini chalkboards, but little hands wipe off chalk too easily. So instead of using chalk, I use my Cameo to cut vinyl letters. If you don’t have the ability to cut your own letters, a white paint pen offers a permeate solution.
I am off to pick up the playroom a bit before the kids come home stowing away toys, books and stuffed animals in my favorite kids toy storage solutions. Which ones will you add to your home organization?

Awesome ideas! I’m always looking for new ways and solutions to organize all of our toys. Especially now that the holidays are over. Thank you for sharing!
You are most welcome. I think we all need extra organization after the holidays!

Great ideas! I really love the canvas cubes, too. Although, that fox bin is adorable! Thanks for sharing.
I’ve never seen the bean bag storage one. That’s brilliant! Do you actually own one? Is the fabric pretty sturdy? I wish they came in more colors/prints!
The bean bag storage is actually a wish list item from my daughter. She has a friend with one, and she came home asking for one (after Santa finished shopping!). It may be a birthday gift/solution!
