Stuffed animals have a sneaky way of multiplying overnight. One Jellycat or Slumberkins on your baby's bookshelf quickly turns into two, or the Squishmallows start to outnumber the actual pillows on your child's bed. Before long, you're scooping an entire fuzzy menagerie off the playroom floor.

Our advice? Show those cuddly creatures you mean business, and step up your storage solutions. Here are 10 toy bins, baskets, bookcases and hammocks that will keep the stuffed animals in check and limit them to just one corner of the house.

Full Disclosure: We totally squealed when we saw this toadstool storage basket. Give their woodland creatures (or fairy princess dolls) a home in this whimsical mushroom. The rattan bin is built around an iron frame, so it'll hold its shape for years to come, and it includes a lid for tucking toys out of sight at bedtime.

Keep the ocean or surf theme going with this mighty cute whale-shaped storage basket. The bin is crafted (fittingly enough) from water hyacinth and features playful details like a stream of water, a curved tail and a big grin. And in the whale's "stomach"? You'll find plenty of room for stuffed sea turtles, fish, shrimp and more.

If your little one is always arranging tea parties, field trips or train rides for their stuffed animals, they might be better off with a rolling storage bin. This aqua tote is the perfect catch-all, as it includes a deep bucket, pull handles and smooth-gliding wheels for navigating around furniture. When your kiddo's done with their latest adventure, you can snap on the lid and stack the bin in their closet.
