A garage toy storage system is a great tool if you are like many parents who find it difficult to throw out old toys your children no longer use. Your garage is a great place to spirit away some toys for a few months to reintroduce them to your children at a later time. You just have to have a storage system in place or the kid’s toys will overtake grownups toys, like your car and your ATV.
While few storage systems are designed specifically for storing your children’s toys in the garage, an endless supply of storage systems for things like tools and other hardware a repairperson might need are available. Nearly all of these storage systems work just fine for a garage toy storage system.
Once you have decided on the toys to keep, it is time to decide what garage toy storage system is right for you. Here are some popular choices from the simple to the complex:
If you are not looking for any permanent garage toy storage cabinetry or shelving for the kid’s toys you can find just about any container for toys at stores like Target. You can find bins made from different textiles, as well as plastic, metal or wood. Whether you are looking for something that stacks, rolls or just stands alone you can find it here.
Target, for example, always has a great selection in child friendly colors like shades of blue, pink, green, red, yellow and much more. Their containers are lightweight yet sturdy, are easily carried or rolled from garage to playroom, and back again. You can find something for any budget with some costing as little as $6.
When it comes to storing things in your garage it’s a good idea to choose something that will be great for children when they are at home and great for you when they no longer need their toys stored in your garage. Most any garage toy storage system can be made to double as a tools storage system when the kids have outgrown their toys. If you are installing something permanent like a system of shelves and cabinets, it is a good idea to find something versatile.
