Top 5 Best Toy Storages | 2017 Reviews

Kids are pretty much always all over the place, and so are their toys. Toys which could range from various sized Lego pieces, to huge Teddy bears and all of them take up a lot of space in their rooms. As parents, it is our duty to make sure that our kids’ toys are properly tucked away to avoid injuries and other mishaps. The problem lies in where to properly store them, you probably have a separate cabinet for toys, or some prefer to put it inside bins under their children’s beds.

But we still find that there is always room for chaos to happen. It could be because the cabinet’s area may be difficult to reach for your kids, or the doors they needed to open are kind of heavy or your little ones’ head frequently bumps on the bed while reaching for their toy bin. Whatever the reason is, the fact remains that making kids stash their toys away could be pretty difficult, which is why we came up with the best storage ideas for toys.

How to choose toy storages?

The key to remember in choosing the appropriate storage bins for toys is the ease of use. Your children should be able to independently place their toys inside the storage bins to make sure that the goal of keeping things where they should be is met. Ease of use, could include the size of the bin, and if your child can easily access it. It also includes how easy it is to manipulate for youngsters, are there knobs they need to pull or use, or just a pretty straightforward flap. And lastly, how much toys could it store?

Tot Tutors Kids' Toy Organizer With Storage Bins

Tot Tutors Kids Toy Organizer With Storage Bins

The Tot Tutor Kids’ toy organizer with bins is a great furniture to have inside your child’s room. With its 4-tier design and perfectly sized bins, available in small which is 8"w X 11.5"l X 5.5"d and large sizes at 11.5"w X 16.5"l X 5.5"d that would make it very easy for your little ones to take charge of keeping their toys.

There are a couple of things we like about this toy storage; first, it’s made out of wood. We are talking about the organizer as the bins are made of rugged plastic, both are durable, stable and are definitely built to handle a fair amount of toys, plus the frequent toy tossing of your kids. Second is that it’s just the right height for a 3 year old to reach even the top drawers, they would easily see the toys they have and be able to play with them and eventually keep them accordingly as well.

Also, unlike a cabinet, there are no knobs or any other parts that could be difficult to manipulate. In addition, the bins could be easily taken out of the organizer which is very useful if you have a ton of small toys that your kids love to play with but is a potential hazard if left on the floor unattended. The removable bins are also great for easy cleaning. When it comes to the color combination, we liked the multi-color better as it could promote a sorting activity, red are for toy cars, blue are for balls, etc. Best of all, the Tot Tutor Kids’ toy organizers are fairly easy to assemble, what’s not to love?

Honey-Can-Do SRT-01603 Kids Toy Organizer and Storage Bins

Honey-Can-Do SRT-01603 Kids Toy Organizer and Storage Bins

The Honey-Can-Do SRT-01603 Kids Toy Organizer and Storage Bins comes in close second, also great because of its 4 tier design and heavy-duty plastic bins which is great for quick and easy cleaning, good for us parents and definitely a good to have furniture for kids playroom. Moreover, it has stain-resistant surfaces, so you won’t need to do heavy cleaning, just wipe with a piece of cloth and you’re good to go.

The Honey-Can-Do SRT-01603 Kids toy organizer has a natural wood finish but is actually made out of MDF board making it a little lighter than our previous choice, and the corners are rounded off to provide additional safety for kids who could be a little clumsy. Similar to the Tot Tutors’ Kids organizer the Honey Can do also has varying sizes of bins for easy sorting, you have 4 large bins measuring 16.25" x 11.75" x 5" and 8 smaller toy storage bins at 11.75" x 7.75" x 5".

However, despite all of the lovable features of the Honey Can Do storage bins for toys, most people might not exactly be a fan of the colors that it comes in. The bins could also pose a bit of a problem as they do not sit perfectly on the organizer, they could probably get more support if they were made a little deeper.

Delta Multi-Color Deluxe Toy Organizer with Storage Bins

Delta Multi-Color Deluxe Toy Organizer with Storage Bins

The Delta Multi-Color Deluxe Toy Organizer offers 4 regular sized bins, three larger sized ones and 2 extra-large bins at the bottom. If you are having problems on how to store large toys, this toy storage can definitely help you out.

The top shelves are made out of fabric and is stretched between two wooden poles, ideal to keep toys that are light but may not fit the middle shelf. The extra-large canvas toy bins on the lower section sit perfectly on the floor for proper support should you need to store heavier toys, like remote controlled cars or wooden building blocks.

The sturdy wood construction is great to hold the right amount of toy that you need to keep, and the rugged canvas bins are also removable. However, note that the bins are made from non-woven fabric, and you wouldn’t want to get it dirty as it could be difficult to wash off, but they are replaceable. Being that said, we're pushing this product to third spot on the list.

Note that if you are planning to house an excessive amount of toys in this one, make sure it is leaning on a wall for proper support. This is truly lightweight and your kid might be able to manipulate the parts or they could even move around the entire organizer with much ease. It could get a little wobbly over time but it is very child friendly and safe to use, with not much element that could cause serious injury. This makes it great for younger children even those who are still learning how to walk to have in their playroom. It is also relatively small in size definitely one of the toy storage solutions for small spaces that you may encounter.

ECR4Kids 3-Tier Toy Storage Organizer with 12 Bins

ECR4Kids 3-Tier Toy Storage Organizer with 12 Bins

We believe that one of the best toy organizers with bins in the market is the ECR4Kids 3-Tier Toy Storage Organizer. This easy to assemble 3-tier toy organizer is great to have around the house, whether it’s inside the playroom, nursery or children’s room. What makes it great is that the durable plastic rack has rounded edges for safety, definitely an awesome organizer for the little ones to handle. The metal bars support the organizer therefore adding to its sturdiness difficult to topple over.

The ECR4Kids is mostly bought for playschools, because first, it can handle the fiddling and occasional pushing of rowdy kids and it does not require meticulous maintenance. You could pull out the bins easily to either dust or wipe clean that even kids could do it, make sure to add it as part of their to-do list. It has a total of 12 bins uniformly sized at 12L x 8.25W x 5.25H inches, very functional for those who have similarly sized toys or equipment to use. What’s neat about this organizer is that when your kid grows up, they will still be able to use it for their stuff. There are also parents who keep these in their tool sheds, handy for sorting small equipment including but not limited to nuts, bolts and screws.

Despite the obviously good things about this toy and book organizer, you will not exactly be able to store larger toys in this one; you might need to buy a different organizer to fit that need. And even though the bins are easy to pull out, it may take a little practice to put it back in, so your toddler might need a little help in that area as well so we're putting this at the fourth.

Maybe you have a copious amount of building blocks, art supplies and toy cars and you want it stored when your children are not playing with it, this toy storage is the best option.

You have the option to mount in on a wall, for added stability and there are drawer dividers for proper segregation. You could easily stack two of these on a side of your kid’s room although the height may not exactly be as accessible, so if you have toys you want to circulate or keep for now; you could rearrange the drawers until it’s time for them to be put into use again.

Conclusion

Generally, it would be ideal to have at least a toy box with shelves in your kids’ rooms to keep you sane, which is what most people would go for, but to be really able to keep everything in place easily, toy storage organizers are the way to go. There’s a little more advantage in training your kid to set a place for everything they have not only with toys, instead of just dumping them into a box in a random order. This way you could avoid getting the toys broken and misshapen because another heavy toy is probably sitting on top of it.
