10 Best Stuffed Animal Storage Solutions
Put those cuddly companions in their place, once and for all, with our favorite toy bins, baskets, bookshelves and hammocks.
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 their nursery or playroom looking sharp with this adorable, cactus-shaped toy hamper. The woven base is nice and wide to accommodate a variety of stuffed animals, and it boasts decorative branches that double as side handles. The pink pom-pom flowers are a fun touch, too, and add a pop of color to the room.
Give their monkeys, leopards, sloths, snakes and tree frogs a fitting place to hang with this stuffed animal storage hammock. The net is made from sturdy nylon and is capable of holding up to 25 pounds. The hammock also comes with screw hooks and anchors, so you can install it in any corner.
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.
Raising a Montessori baby? Try storing their stuffed animals in this double market bin. The simple, no-fuss unit sits low to the floor, so your child can easily see and independently access their toys. Meanwhile, the thin slanted front panel helps "hold" items in place for a toddler-friendly cleanup.
Taming the playroom clutter just got so much easier. Clean up in a flash with this two-in-one activity table. The stools are designed to slide and nest under the ash wood top, and each one has a built-in compartment for craft supplies, books and stuffed animals.
Some storage solutions never go out of style. Tuck their stuffed animals out of sight with this heirloom toy chest. The piece is crafted from solid, kiln-dried poplar wood and finished with quality veneer. Best of all? The lid is equipped with safety hinges, so you don't have to worry about any pinched fingers.
Encourage your little one to pick up after themselves by adding this fun truck toy bin to their bedroom. The sturdy wood car is divided into two sections, with a front slot for books and a large bed for stuffed animals. Needless to say, they'll have a blast come clean-up time.
