In fact, my daughter still trucks most of her bed stuffies downstairs every morning!

So precious!

Your kiddo may have a lot of stuffed animals or only a few, but either way, they can be difficult to store and keep track of.

Stuffed animals are an important part of childhood, but they do take up a lot of space and can be hard to store properly.

And I know as a mom how desperately you want to keep your home organized!

So here are some ideas for keeping your child’s stuffed friends organized:

Stuffed Animal Storage Ideas You Need to Try

Stuffed animals are an important part of childhood, but they do take up a lot of space and can be hard to store properly.

Luckily, there are plenty of storage ideas out there that will organize your kid’s stuffed animal collection while also adding a cute touch to their bedroom!

Check out these ideas for keeping your child’s stuffed friends organized:

1. Hammock

Hang a hammock in a corner of the room or near the bed to create a cozy spot for your child’s stuffed animals.

This is what I use for my twins to display their stuffed animals, and it 100% works!

2. Bean Bag Chair

A large bean bag chair can be a perfect spot to store and display stuffed animals.

Simply buy an empty beanbag chair and fill it with stuffed animals.

Every couple of months, you can switch them around – your little one will be excited to see their old stuffies again!

3. Wooden Crate

Use a wooden crate to create a rustic look in your child’s room. Fill it with stuffed animals and place it in a corner.

Or you can attach the crates to the wall and make a shelf!

4. Wall Shelves

Install wall shelves to display stuffed animals in a creative way.

You can even use different-sized shelves to create a unique display.

Consider putting up one long shelf close to the ceiling or a bunch of little ones around the wall.

You can also go for box-shaped shelves or ones that are circular.

5. Toy Chest

A toy chest is a classic storage option for stuffed animals.

Choose a colorful chest to add a pop of color to the room.

Toy chests are great because your kiddo can easily clean up their own stuffies and learn how to keep their room tidy!

6. Hanging Baskets

Hang baskets from the ceiling to store stuffed animals. This is a great way to add storage space without taking up floor space.

You can attach a curtain rod to the wall and hang baskets from it or use the hanging baskets you would use for plants and attach them to the ceiling.

7. Animal Zoo

Make a fun “animal zoo” out of PVC pipe and mesh netting.

Your child can easily store and retrieve stuffed animals from this fun storage solution.

Or you can take an old shelf and attach netting to it.

As long as your little one can grab their stuffies, you’re good to go!

8. Under-the-Bed Storage

Use under-the-bed storage containers to keep stuffed animals organized and out of the way.

You can use plastic totes, cloth collapsible storage bags, or those vacuum seal bags to save on space.

9. Over-the-Door Organizer

Use an over-the-door organizer to store and display stuffed animals.

This is a great option if your child has a lot of small stuffed animals.

You can use a shoe organizer to get this done!

Just hang it on the back of the door and tuck in your little one’s stuffies.

10. Play Tent

Play tents are a great addition to any child’s room.

They provide tons of ideas for pretend play and give your little one a spot to hang out in and relax.

But most importantly, you can shove your child’s stuffies inside at the end of the day when it’s time to tidy up!

11. Stuffed Animal Tree

Out of all the ideas to display stuffed animals, this one may be more for hardcore DIYers.

But it’s super cute and keeps all your kiddo’s stuffies organized and easy to grab.

12. Stuffed Animal Swing

A swing is the perfect way to display stuffed animals, especially if your child doesn’t use their stuffies anymore (but doesn’t want to get rid of them).

All you need is some strong rope and pieces of wood to build this adorable plush storage swing.

13. Wicker Hamper

For a quick and easy bedroom stuffed animal storage idea, just grab a wicker hamper!

It will look stylish in your child’s room and provide the perfect vessel to tame their stuffie collection.

14. End-of-the-Bed Stuffed Animal Storage

This cute little stuffie bed attaches to the end of your little one’s bed to make stuffed animals easy to store and grab – especially in the middle of the night!

You can even use an old sheet or scarf to tie the bed posts to make a little storage area for your child’s stuffies!

15. Storage Ottoman

When you share a house with a child, you need more than bedroom stuffed animals storage ideas!

If the stuffies are overtaking your living room, tuck them into a storage ottoman.

That way, they stay out of sight, and you have some additional seating in your home.

16. Cargo Net Wall Stuffed Animal Storage

If your child has more stuffies than you can count (I feel your pain), you can use some wall space to keep them all in one place.

Attach a cargo net to a blank wall and fill it with stuffies. Your kiddo can easily grab the one they want through the net.

17. Labeled Fabric Basket

If there are shelves in your little one’s room, you can easily organize their stuffed animals by placing them in fabric baskets.

You can also label the baskets to help your child learn how to organize and put their stuffies away!

18. Clear Plastic Bins

Instead of fabric baskets, you can use clear plastic bins with lids to keep all those stuffies in one place.

This is a great stuffed animal organization idea if you plan on rotating your kid’s toys on a weekly or monthly basis – just put one bin away and take another one out.

19. Hang Them From Plastic Chains

To take advantage of vertical space in your child’s room, hang plastic chains from the ceiling.

You can find ones with clips attached or use your own.

Your child can grab the stuffie they want and clip them back to the chain to keep them from taking over the room.

20. Pegboard Stuffed Animal Storage

Install a pegboard on a wall and hang the stuffed animals from hooks or clips.

This is a great option if your child has a large collection and you want to keep them organized and visible!

21. Closet Organizer Plush Storage

Install a closet organizer with multiple shelves and cubbies to keep your stuffed animals organized and out of sight.

This is perfect if you have limited floor space and want to keep all those stuffed animals hidden away when not in use.

22. Wall Hanging Planters

You know those hanging planters people attach to the sides of their homes to display their beautiful blooms?

You can easily attach those to the walls of your child’s room for easy-to-access plush storage!

23. Wall Mounted Buckets

Go check out your local dollar store and look for those small tin buckets (they usually sell them with the spring and summer stuff).

All you have to do is attach them to the wall with hooks and fill them with stuffies. You can even decorate the buckets to match your little one’s room decor!

24. Dresser Drawer Storage Box

Who doesn’t love an upcycle DIY?

If you have an old dresser lying around, you can attach wooden legs to the bottom to create an adorable storage box for stuffies.

25. Recycle Beach Bags

Isn’t this a cute storage idea for stuffed animals?

Find some old canvas bags and plaster them to your child’s door and there you have it!

Lots of storage for those precious stuffies!

26. Rotate Stuffed Animals With Vacuum Storage Bags

For your toy rotation, preserve stuffed animals by storing them in vacuum sealed bags.

They are large and once the air is removed, can fit under the bed or in the closet.

27. Connect Crates Together

For a fun DIY stuffed animal storage idea, why not paint some wooden crates and connect them with rope?

Super cute and chic and looks good in a nursery or kid room!

28. Use a Scarf Organizer

Pick up a scarf organizer and stuff the toy animals in each hole! 

Not only does this look cool and neat, but each animal will stay in it’s place and won’t fall out!

29. Repurpose Hat Boxes

If you have old hat boxes laying around, why not fastened them to your child’s wall and put their stuffed animals in them?

It makes a cute photo op and every night your child can look at them!

30. Use Wire Baskets

I like the look of black metal or wire against a white wall or white doors.

If that’s you then you will like this stuffed animal storage idea the BEST!

Use some wire baskets for those stuffies!

31. Make a Stuffy Headboard!

How fun is this idea?

Thank you for sharing your post on stuffed animal storage ideas. As a mom of young children, I know firsthand how quickly those stuffed animals can accumulate and take over the house. I found your suggestions to be really helpful, and I appreciate the creativity and functionality of the different storage solutions. In fact, I was inspired to tackle the stuffed animal storage problem in my own home. cabinets professionally painteda new color and wanted to find a matching storage solution for the stuffed animals. Following your DIY drawer storage box tutorial, I created a custom storage box for my kids’ stuffed animals using a dresser drawer that I repurposed. I painted it the same color as my cabinets, and it turned out beautifully. The kids love it, and it looks great in the playroom!Reply to Tammie
