How to store cuddly toys

How to store cuddly toys

Don’t just chuck them in the closet! Who doesn’t love a cuddly toy? Whether we’re six or 60, no matter what age we are, they always have a special place in our hearts, offering us both comfort and sentimentality – which means they can be super hard to get rid of.

But due to their varying size, storing them efficiently can sometimes be challenging. Fortunately, here at Currie Easy Self Storage, we have the solution. 

In this guide, we will explain some of the best (and unique) ways to store your cuddly toys, so that you don’t have to resort to selling them on – or worse, throwing them away.


Let’s start with something simple. Baskets are an ideal way to store cuddly toys as they look great around the home and items inside can be easily reached for and easily tidied away. Whether it’s fabric baskets, rattan baskets or wire baskets, find basket options that match your interior. Baskets can also be wall mounted and not only does this save wall space, but they look super stylish as wall decor too.

Plastic tubs

Plastic tubs are both spacious and sturdy, meaning they can hold a large capacity of toys at the same time as protecting them from damage. Chances are, they can also be easily be slid under the bed out of sight when not in use. Not only that, but they are super easy to clean and last a lifetime – perfect for storing toys that are of sentimental value to their owners.

Wooden crates

If you’re looking for a DIY project, then wooden crates can be a great way to store your toys. You can paint them and decorate them, and they’re stackable – bringing a rustic charm to any room they’re in.

Hanging shoe rack

Give your favourite cuddly toys their own personal “seat belt” with an over-the-door hanging shoe rack. Keeping your best friends safe and sound, this method of storage provides easy access, while being intrusive. 

Toy chair

If your cuddly toy collection is yours or your children’s pride and joy, give them a special place to be on display at all times. Cover a chair with soft toys and cable ties to create a permanent, and visually aesthetic, storage solution.

Self storage

For those amongst us who have an enormous cuddly toy collection, a self storage unit may actually be the most practical storage solution when space in your home is at a premium! Particularly if your cuddly toys are collectables, our self storage units are dry, safe and secure meaning that your cuddly toys can remain in mint condition and safe from sun damage, damp, fire, theft and more.
