Most stuffed animals are stored with an expiration date. Once your child has grown larger than their toys, there is no point in reserving specific storage space for them.
This is where this great idea comes in. The hanging storage system works great for stuffed animals, but it can also hold clothes, books and other essentials as your child grows.
This stuffed animal storage idea is very simple. All you need is a collection of pretty bins or baskets.
These storage bins are very handy for transporting toys from the bedroom to the play area, and they can hold a lot of things. For easier access, lay the large plush at the bottom, then stack the smaller ones on top.
Your child's furry friends deserve a little fun too. This plush animal swing is a great accessory for a child's room. Plus, the swing is surprisingly simple to make. All you need are wood, hooks, and rope.

For this setup, determine with your child the limit on the number of stuffed animals he can display at a time. Think about three or four toys at a time. The rest can be nested in one of the baskets.
HOLD ON WELL
A comfortable hanging hammock is the perfect place for stuffed animals. This DIY storage net effortlessly combines beauty and practicality. Make one with a large piece of fabric, bias tape, and nails to hang it up.
That's all. If you want, you can decorate the edge of the net with trims, like this colorful pom pom edge.
Advice : The key to this net is the hanging height. If you just want to display stuffed animals, place it in a high corner. But if you want your child to be able to grab toys, hang them up close at hand.
THE CREATIVE CORNER
If your child has a steadily growing stuffed animal zoo, it makes sense to build a cage for them. This smart storage idea is tucked away in a corner.
Not only does it make use of otherwise wasted space, it can also be customized to accommodate the number of animals you need to store. An extendable roll of twine forms the bars of the cage and allows your child to easily get animals in and out.
