One of the simplest ways to keep children’s toys organized is to form an organizational system that meshes well with their natural tendencies to explore and discover. Children will naturally want to explore everything in their environment and will get too carried away sometimes. That’s why parents need to step in and help them by getting creative when it comes to toy storage systems. In the following, we rounded up some of the most useful toy storage tips for children, and expert advice on how to make such a system work.
The toy storage boxes designed specifically for small children are a good place to start. These boxes have different compartments for different animal types, such as dolls or cars. The animal boxes can be stacked one upon another to create multiple levels of organization for your kids. For example, there are storage boxes which have drawers underneath where smaller items, such as balls or trains, can be stored. There are also boxes with slides which can be used to store other larger items, like trucks or boats.
If you have a lot of different kinds of toys which are not necessarily girls but look cute anyway, then you should look into the many cute storage bins available. You can put a few toys in a decorative holder which blends in with your room or house. There are storage bins which have hanging poles with handles so that your child can hang on to them and move them around freely. There are even bins with wheels that let your child roll the bins from side to side.
If you have a favorite character that your child loves to collect storage boxes, then you could make a custom shelving unit just for them. Buy some storage crates with cartoon-style characters printed on the side or inside them, and place these custom shelving units in strategic locations in your kid’s room. There are plenty of storage bins with colorful wheels, handles, and wheels already on the market which will coordinate with the decor of your child’s room. You can even buy special hooks from the internet to attach to the walls of their custom shelving unit, which will allow your child to reach them for various toy collections.
If your children have a love of stuffed animals, but their bedroom is decorated quite poorly, then you can use storage bins to store all their stuff into one area. The first step is to buy a set of storage shelves. You can either purchase plain shelves which have no decoration at all, or you can get ones with lots of different pockets, drawers, and compartments, all designed to hold stuffed animals. Place the compartments close together and fill them with stuffed animals; the more space they take up, the better. You can fill the shelves up by putting more stuffed animals into each compartment.
When shopping for storage shelves, look for plastic ones with smooth surfaces, as they will be easier to clean after they’ve been used. Plastic shelves are also much easier to assemble, so you won’t need any extra help to put them together. You may also consider attaching the storage bins to the walls of your child’s room so that they will be even more organized than before. If you cannot afford the wooden shelves, then there are plenty of plastic shelves that look just like wooden ones, but which are cheaper. There are lots of different sizes and colors of storage containers available, so you should easily be able to find one that suits your needs.
