18 Genius Stuffed Animal Storage Ideas

15 Creatively Simple DIY Stuffed Animal Organizers For Kids’ Rooms

Stuffed animals. So cute! So fluffy! So full or memories! So good at taking up space. It started so innocently right. Your child wanted the stuffed penguin at the zoo.

The they wanted one from a carnival, then a theme park then people realized how much your little one loved animals so they gifted them the kindness of their hearts and the next thing you know, your kid’s bedroom is overrun with stuffed little creatures. Now you feel all you can do is stand there.

scratching your head wondering how on earth you’re going to contain this stuffed “mini zoo”. But this doesn’t have to be a permanent state. It is possible to organize these toys with a little help.

Luckily for you, other parents have walked this road before and have shared their favorite stuffed animal storage ideas. And just to make your life that much easier, we created the list below so you don’t have to waste any time finding the perfect solution for you.

Stuffed Animal Storage Ideas for Messy Rooms

When your kids reach that age when they don’t play much with their stuffed animals but they’re still not quite ready to get rid of them, this stuffed animal swing is a brilliant idea.

Stuffed animal chairs are a genius way to keep the toys the way and make them useful at the same time. What kid wouldn’t love these?

If sewing isn’t your thing, here’s a stuffed animal chair from Amazon that looks pretty affordable and has great reviews.

Install a curtain rod and let the animals hang off it. What a cute and simple option!

To keep toys from spreading out, let them go up! I love the stuffed animal zoo, and this clever mama’s stuffed animal barn is brilliant, too.

Build one of these toy corrals to attach to the end of your child’s bed.

Wall-mounted buckets or baskets are an easy, practical solution to the toy problem.

Install a long shelf nearly the length of the room to keep stuffed animals on. This is another good solution if your child no longer plays with them but wants to keep them a while longer.

Hang a shoe organizer to store small stuffed animals behind the door.

Make your own stuffed animal net if you’re feeling crafty. If you’re not, you can buy a similar one here.

Or here’s a no-sew stuffed animal hammock made with tulle, ribbon and command hooks.

Over-the-door shelves are another good behind-the-door solution to keep the toys the way but still within easy reach.

For kids with only a handful of stuffed toys, a hanging basket may be all you need.

Attach stuffed animals to a ribbon with clothespins, and hang them in a corner to get them the way.

A revolving shoe tree is a smart storage solution because your child can rotate the tree to reach toys easily rather than pulling out loads of them at once.

You can pick up a couple of wall hanging planters for fairly cheap at your local home improvement store, but I see these often at thrift stores and garage sales, too. We’re all about cheap storage here!

I’m so glad I ran across this wire hamper trick. We bought some from Walmart several years ago but don’t love them for laundry. They’ll work much better for storing our son’s stuffed animals!

Isn’t this toy canopy a gorgeous option for a girl’s room? It looks so wispy and pretty.

You know it won’t be long before that little zoo starts invading the rest of your house so you need to contain immediately. Whether you child’s bed is covered, their closet is full or their room is carpeted with stuffed animals, one of these solutions will calm the chaos and help restore some sanity back into your life.

DIY hanging toy storage to organize the stuffed animals

15 Creatively Simple DIY Stuffed Animal Organizers For Kids’ Rooms

In today’s post: Get all those stuffed animals organized with this easy DIY hanging toy storage system.

Anyone else drowning in toys? We really don’t buy the kids that many toys, but they receive them as gifts and inherit them from cousins and save up their own money to buy special ones…and we’ve ended up with SO MANY STUFFED ANIMALS! And of course each stuffed animal is absolutely loved and cherished so it’s pretty hard to convince the kids we should donate some of them. The kids claim they’ll keep them cleaned up on their beds, but it just doesn’t happen, and I’m about to lose my mind.

Or I was. I spent some time hunting for a good stuffed animal storage system.

I’ve seen hammocks which hang in a corner of the room (won’t work because there’s no free corner in their bedroom) and large custom built stuffed animal zoos ($200+) and bookshelves with dowels running down the front so kids can stuff all their toys inside (it keeps them off the ground, but looks almost just as messy). I finally came up with a DIY stuffed animal storage solution that is pretty inexpensive and can be easily put together in an hour or two. It’s simple enough that the kids can help with most of the construction.

DIY Hanging toy storage

Now, I probably wouldn’t put one of these in a toddler’s bedroom since the temptation to climb on it daily might be too much to resist. But my boys are older – they’re in that stage where they don’t actually play with stuffed animals much, but they aren’t ready to give them up.

So for them, the stuffed animal swing works perfectly. Each boy has a shelf, and each shelf fits 8 Build-a-Bear sized animals easily, with room for a few more smaller ones stuffed in.

The boys know they can keep as many animals as will fit on their shelf, which is going to make it easy to know when it’s time to de-clutter and donate a few.

Before we get to the how-to, I just want to make a note: anything that hangs from the ceiling with rope or cord, this could be a strangulation hazard if an unattended young child climbs on it. Do not put one of these in the bedroom of a very small child, and use your good judgment when building one for an older child if you have small children in the home – thanks!

How to build a hanging toy storage system


You’ll need the supplies pictured above, plus wood glue and a drill (a staple gun is optional).

For a tri-level swing, you’ll need six 4in wide by 1/4in thick by 2ft long hobby precuts, about 30 ft of rope, two hooks that can screw into ceiling studs, and 5 4ft wood laths.

Look for the precut wood in the “hobby wood” section, and wood lath somewhere in the pine boards section at Home Depot.

The hobby precuts are a couple of dollar each, and the wood lath is about 50 cents each (pick the lath carefully, looking for ones that are straight and have minimal knots).

Start construction by sanding your wood. The hobby precuts will need minimal sanding, but the wood lath will need more.

Next, cut your wood lath. For each level you need two 2-ft lengths and two 1-ft lengths.

Lay two of the hobby precuts down on the ground with about 2-3 inches between them, as shown below. Use wood glue to glue a 1-ft length of lath on each end of the hobby precuts, as you see below. Make sure the lath piece extends a bit off to the side of each precut.

Glue together the swing seats for each level (clamp together or lay something heavy on each lath while the glue dries) and let dry completely. Then you’ll drill a hole big enough for your rope to go through on each end of the lath pieces. In the photo above, the hole would go right where the boy’s thumb is on the right.

In the photo below you can see how the swing is put together. Cut 4 lengths of rope – 8 feet is probably plenty, but this will depend on how high your ceiling in in the room you want to hang this swing and how low you want it to hang.

Put a knot at one end of the rope, then thread it through the swing seat. Place another knot right on top of the swing seat. About 4 inches above the swing seat wrap the rope around a 2-ft piece of lath, which acts as the swing bar.

Either knot the rope or secure with staples.

My swing seats are space about 18 inches apart, but you can make them as close together or far apart as you’d . Just repeat the process to add the next level. When you’re done, knot the ropes together on each side and hang from hooks that you’ve screwed directly into studs in the ceiling. Here’s a view of the top swing seat from below to give you a better idea of what it looks finished:

Not too difficult and not too expensive – and now all the stuffed animals are off the floor and the way! Now that all the stuffed animals are comfortably ensconced on the hanging toy storage swing, we can vacuum the floor without having to clean up first. Now if we can only get the legos organized as well…

4. Easy DIY Stuffed Animal Net

I love the idea of keeping stuffed animals in a net in a corner of the room. Because it’s hung off the floor, you have all of that floor space left available. You could lower this one if your little ones still play with their stuffed animals or hang it high on the wall next to the ceiling if they don’t.

This is a great idea for pre-teens rooms and the net is super easy to make yourself and doesn’t take a lot of fabric. This is a good one idea to reuse leftover fabric scraps.

A few old hat boxes give you so much space to store those stuffed animals. You can create little individual homes for the animals. These are super easy and if you can’t find hat boxes to use, you could totally repurpose some regular cardboard boxes.

Just dress them up a bit with fabric or paint and attach them right onto the wall. And, you can hang them low enough that your little ones can still get to their favorite animals.

8. Repurposed Curtain Rod Storage

You can turn a curtain rod into a wonderful way to organize and store stuffed animals. If you use an adjustable rod, a shower curtain rod, you could simply hang it on the wall in a corner.

The pressure that the rod creates will keep it in place. Or, you can hang a traditional curtain rod with hangers on the wall just about anywhere and then just stick those stuffed animals between the rod and the wall.

9. Cute DIY Stuffed Animal Zoo

I love this little zoo that you can easily make yourself for those stuffed animals. There are so many ways to customize this one and if you have a lot of stuffed animals, you could easily do more than one of these.
