This year I’m tackling one room at a time, trying to arrange, decorate and organize. My son’s room is one of the first on the list. I have to say I have a hard time knowing what to do with his toys. There are things he plays with often that need to be accessible. Things that he plays with less, but his sentimental mamma is not ready to get rid of yet.

These excuses have caused me to just deal with his room situation, instead of doing something about it. (head hung in shame) This year, I have finally had enough. I’m going in with totes and labels in hand to put a few of these unique toy storage ideas to use.


I’m absolutely in love with these drawstring toy bags. They would be great for helping little ones know where to put their toys.

This DIY storage idea is definitely a functional piece of furniture, and you can build it for yourself with these free plans.

Raise your hand if your child has a million Hotwheels? Yep, mine too. If you are tired of stepping on them, here is a DIY car garage that also makes a cute display.


Legos are another problem area for us, so I love the idea of this Lego storage toolbox.

Tame the clutter outside with this outdoor toddler station.

This upholstered bucket ottoman is a perfect kid seat and storage. I think it would be great for holding library books and then could double as a seat for reading.


This playroom and toy organizer has options for baskets or bins for storing stuff out in the open.

These vintage crate carts are so cute I kind of want some to hold my stuff too.

At some point in our child’s life we have all had plenty of diaper boxes laying around, so I think these DIY nappy box toy bins are a great idea.


DIY repurposed can Lego head is just too cute and perfect for holding different trinkets.

Toy organization in a closet is perfect for keeping toys out of sight while making it very easy for kids to get too.


Repurposing old lockers for storage looks like the ultimate way to organize kids toys. I will definitely be on the lookout for a set to use in my sons room.

I think most of us are working with less space than we wish, so I think you will find this Toy organization in small spaces (on a budget) very helpful.

This stuffed animal chair is just ingenious! My son has a lot of stuffed animals that I don’t’ want to get rid of for sentimental reasons. He doesn’t necessarily play with anymore, so this would be a great way to hold on to them and get some use out of them.

This bathtub storage solution is great and it easily transforms to something a little more adult friendly when you have guest.

My son always manages to tear the box when opening up a game, so this storage solution and display idea will come in handy.

My husband really dislikes the plastic storage look, so I love how not plastic this under the bed storage bins look when you add a little chalkboard paint.

An easy way to tame the clutter of video games and their accessories.


This playmat is an easy way to clean up toys when they are done, and then toys can be stored in this DIY Toy/ Lego bag.

Finally, a way to neatly organize those play dresses and shoes with this dress up storage. There is also a link to plans, so you can build your own version.

 Do you have any tips for storing and organizing kids toys?
