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 15 toy bins, baskets, bookcases and hammocks that will keep the stuffed animals in check and limit them to just one corner of the house.

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.
