Does it feel like the toys are taking over your house? Following on from our very popular 10 Hacks for Parents to Organise Toys article we’ve found 12 More Clever Toy Storage & Organisation Hacks:
#1. Repurpose a Bookcase
I like this idea from Amy at The Idea Room, she repurposed an old bookcase into a simple toy storage unit including the clever cuddly toy section on the right.

#2. Hang Mesh Storage
This is a nifty idea from Micasa if you are short of space and can make use of some vertical room instead. Hang simple mesh storage units from the ceiling for cuddly toys.

#3. Komplement Clothes Hanger
Love this! Use an IKEA Komplement clothes hanger on the back of the door for toys instead of ties as Lorri Dyner has suggested.

#4. Underbed Storage
When space is at a premium in a small room, one idea is to use drawers that go under the bed for extra storage space.
This idea from AVSO is good because the drawer has containers to sort the toys easily.

#5. IKEA Pax Underbed Drawer Hack
Another cool underbed storage idea, this one from Ikeahackers.net, where they used the IKEA PAX drawer and attached caster wheels and handles so the child can pull on the box to access his toys.

#6. DIY Toy Box with Casters
I love this project from This Little Street to make toy boxes with casters and cushioned lids. There’s a complete tutorial and shopping list for this fun project on their website.
