The Best Plastic-Free Toy Storage

Being able to properly store your tot’s books, toys and clothes can figuratively and literally save your sanity as well as the integrity of your décor. We have 9 incredible solutions that both parents and kids will love.

Kids storing their toys in a wooden toy box

No matter the size or layout of your home; toys, jackets, books, and shoes tend to trickle down stairs, through doorways and into our already bursting at the seams minds.

Clutter and mess can make both parents and children feel anxious, distracted and overwhelmed, which is why it’s crucial to help your kids (and yourself) stay organized. As parents who like to look out for other parents, we’re sharing our ten favorite kids toy storage products!

By providing simple storage solutions like baskets or shelving, kids can gain the independence needed to learn how to pack away themselves or find specific toys while having a play date. You’ll notice many of our favorite products have been designed to display books and toys, which makes it easier for kids to find what they’re looking for. Some even have integrated play spaces!

The other great thing about finding effective toy storage solutions is that they can be used for you to rotate toys. It’s no secret that kids may play with something incessantly for a week only to grow tired of it and discard it into the abyss of their closet. One way we’ve kept our kids engaged is by rotating toys every four months or so. The return of a once loved (and then forgotten) dollhouse sparks new interest and will bring nearly as much joy as getting a new toy!
