We’ve received a fair number of stuffed animals as gifts since Charlie was born, and we always stored them away in the closet since he never played with them. But in the past couple of months, Charlie has really started getting into his stuffed animals, so we often find them strewn about our apartment.We definitely need a better organization system, so I created a round-up of my favorite stuffed animal storage solutions below!


Bees Knees Bungalow took this picture at a home and garden store’s idea house. I love how these fabric shelf straps can be customized to match the room’s color scheme.

This clever behind the door toy organizer featured on Small Shop Studio is actually an inexpensive over the door shoe rack.

The Trendy Treehouse
shows a toy chain in action. This is an easy, inexpensive solution that has a small footprint.

The toy hammock is a popular solution that’s also inexpensive, easy to install, and clears up floor space. You can purchase one for less than $8 on Amazon, you can have a custom hammock made (like the one pictured above) on Etsy, or this would probably be a pretty easy DIY.

These outdoor flower planters have been converted into shelves — what a great way to display and organize your favorite stuffed animals, books, and toys. You can easily paint these to coordinate with your room’s color scheme — Lolly Jane spray painted her planters pink. (image via Centsational Girl via Better Homes and Gardens Magazine)

Do you have way too many stuffed animals? You can buy a zoo from Little Zookeepers!

I love theseĀ DIY hanging fabric storage baskets because you can just throw stuff in there.

The Boon Stuffed Animal Bag is available in several different colors, sizes, and styles. It turns stuffed animals into seating!

Pink and Green Mama
ordered a bean bag slipcover from Pottery Barn Kids and filled it with stuff animals!

The Nua Bubble from Rededition is no longer available, but it reminds you that toy storage can be modern and stylish!

These fun toy storage bins from 3 Sprouts are available in 10 different animal designs.

I love all of Serena and Lily’s bohemian inspired designs. Their catalog makes me want to buy everything!

Restoration Hardware Baby epitomizes industrial chic — another design aesthetic I adore.

And Land of Nod has tons of affordable storage solutions. We have that first pictured basket, but we use it as a hamper!

So which option did I decide to go with? Since Charlie’s room is tiny, I ordered a toy chain! I liked that it didn’t take up valuable floor space, it was affordable, and it enabled Charlie to easily see all his stuffed animals.

How do you keep all your little one’s stuffed animals and toys organized?
