28 Kids' Toy Organization and Storage Ideas

Let's talk about Organization today! For those of us who need some inspiration and motivation, I rounded up some awesome Kids' Toy Storage and Organization Ideas! Please, please tell me I'm not the only still wading through the chaos of the post-Christmas-gift toy explosion. My girls are blessed to own a large variety of toys...everything from Barbie to American Girl to Polly Pockets and Lego Friends. But our 1970s Colonial is on the small side, with a limited amount of storage, and a dedicated play space that is open to the rest of the home. It's time to donate some items and rearrange others. Are you ready?

  1. What a great list of organizing ideas! Thanks so much for including mine in your list! Have a great weekend.

  2. I love all the cute Lego storage ideas! We have a ton of Legos:)

  3. LOVE this post, Amanda! Having a smaller home, I am all about organization. Our youngest has the tiniest room and closet. Her closet isn't even 3 feet wide! So I have to get creative when it comes to her toy storage. I should do a post about it! ; ) Thanks for sharing all the great ideas. =)

  4. Wow - these are some beautiful ideas!! Lots of food for thought...

  5. Great round up, Amanda! I need to implement a lot of these around here against the attack of the toys. :)
    Thanks so much for including my fabric labels!

  6. I love that first picture. And I'm sort of obsessed with the Legos storage. I think I will need that in a couple years.

  7. I'd be trampled if all sites gave articles like these awesome articles.


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
