Children are a blessing in countless ways, but stumbling over toys from their ever-expanding collection is not one of them. Kids can accumulate stuffed animals from so many sources that it's hard to keep up with. But it doesn't matter if they are keepsake treasures from Universal Studios, Disney World, Christmas gift exchanges, birthdays, family trips, or even an errand at a local department store—most kids become extremely attached to their soft and cuddly buddies, which can make it impossible to clear them out.
How do we wrangle these adorable toys and organize the spaces that our families share with them? We did the hard work for you and rounded up the best stuffed animal storage ideas so that everyone (even cute teddy bears) can live under one roof in harmony.
From stuffed animal hammocks to storage units, baskets, chests, and even a zoo, there are a variety of storage solutions and display options available for you to dress up your family spaces and kids' rooms in a functional and stylish way.

So whether you want to add order to your house by reclaiming floorspace in a play area or a nursery, each of your kid's stuffed animals will have a designated space of their own to prevent a total home takeover.
