No one toy storage solution is a silver bullet. When you have kids' stuff scattered throughout every room in your home, it takes a system of storage to keep their stuffed animals even remotely under control. That's why it's important to find stuffed animal storage bins that work well in different spaces, from your living room or dining room to the playroom and kids' bedrooms. Whether it's a traditional toy chest, an open basket, or a museum-like shelving system, the best stuffed animal storage ideas keep your little one's toys in plain sight. That makes cleanup easier and can really dial down the fuss when it's time to find their lovey at bedtime.

The best way to store stuffed animals will depend on your home and your needs, of course, but we generally recommend keeping them somewhere little ones can easily access on their own. Not only does that help foster independence, but it also means that they won't be calling for you every time they want to add a plushie to their playtime. When you need to store stuffed animals in a common space, like a living room, we recommend using a neutral trunk or closed basket to keep clutter under wraps while also looking chic amid your existing decor. As for your kids' rooms, ensure their collectibles—be they stuffed kittens, dinosaurs, or fairy princesses—have a designated place to live. Ahead, we highlight 10 fun and functional stuffed animal storage solutions that can work for any home, from over-the-door storage to ideas for corners and shelves.
