Humble Crew Extra-Large Toy Organizer

Humble Crew Extra-Large Toy Organizer, 16 Storage Bins, Espresso/White, 15.5D X 42W X 17.7H in
  • Extra-large size stores 25% more than other toy organizers.
  • Removable toy storage bins for playtime and easy clean up.
  • Sturdy engineered wood construction frame reinforced with steel dowels, 20 pound weight capacity per level.
  • 16 durable plastic storage bins, 12 standard and 4 large (equivalent to 8 standard bins) interchangeable storage bins. BPA and phthalate free.

This Toy Storage Organizer is an absolute MUST HAVE for all playrooms! I purchased the Espresso and White version, but there are a few color options. There’s 16 different bins including 12 standard size and 4 large sized bins. All of those toys that are usually scattered all around the floor can easily fit in these bins! And with the way it’s designed, your toddler can help you put away the toys, making clean up time a breeze. Sometimes they get mismatched, but generally, I categorize the bins for different types of toys, which also helps my toddler advance their sorting skills.


mesh Storage Bags

Umriox Zipper Mesh Document Pouch, 16.9×12.4 in (Black, 18 Packs), Clear Zipper Pouches, Waterproof Travel Pouch for Office Supplies, Puzzles, Board Games & Craft Projects
  • 🌸【What You Can Get】 – You will get a set of 18 Packs 16.9 x 12.4 inches plastic zipper pouches for storage. It can help you organize your miscellaneous items to meet your daily life and work.
  • 🌸【Sturdy & Portable】- Umriox zipper bags are made of sturdy PVC material, waterproof and moisture resistant (except the zipper), can easily wipe away any residue that splatters or spills onto the bag. Besides, Each zipper is equipped with a rope loop, which is strong and sturdy. It can be used as a hanging ring and ready to hang.
  • 🌸【Translucent Design】- Package includes 18 black zipper bags. The translucent plastic zipper bag can prevent the privacy of important documents from leaking, but still can identify what the stuff in the bags.

Say good-bye to clunky puzzle and board game boxes that take up WAY too much closet/shelf space! Use these mesh bags to store puzzles, and board games to save a ton of space! Easier to store, and easier to sort through. I just cut out the game title or cover from the game/puzzle box. Then I just tape it to the bag using clear packing tape! You could also just cut out the board game name and attach it to the zipper handle. Whatever you prefer. (For puzzles, I’d obviously recommend cutting out the entire puzzle image from the box!)

book Storage Rack

Humble Crew, Grey/White Kids Book Rack Storage Bookshelf, 4 Tiers
  • Toddler-sized kid’s bookshelf displays books with covers facing forward for easy identification.
  • Four deep fabric storage pockets stow reading books, board books, coloring books and magazines of all shapes and sizes.
  • Sturdy engineered wood construction is easy to assemble and clean. Includes all hardware.
  • Ideal for children aged 3 – 8.

Every play room or kid’s room needs a book storage rack. I love this kind where the books are front facing. It encourages kids to reach for books more often when they’re looking for something fun to do. If you hide books away in a closet, or even a shelf where they aren’t really visibly displayed, your child is a lot less likely to reach for them.

  • Multi PURPOSE – this bathroom rack is used to organize your space, which is ideal for children’s toys, shampoo, shower gel

  • LARGE OPENING-bath toy organizer for tub It is easier for you and your child to pick up and place toys

Don’t forget about the bath toy organization. I really like this option because it has multiple sections to sort different types of toys. I also really prefer this style where the sections are horizontal/side-by-side, as opposed to the taller versions. This makes it easier for little kids to reach, so they aren’t having to stand up and reach for things in a slippery tub.

  • Ideal storage for home, classroom, crafts or art studios
  • Semi-transparent large storage drawers for easy viewing
  • Locking wheels provide maneuverability and stability when needed
  • Can function as an additional workspace

This craft storage cart has been an AMAZING addition to my toy organization stash. I use this to store my toddler’s coloring books, crayons, markers, colored pencils, construction paper, learning activity sheets, paint supplies, and more. It’s also great because she can grab stuff on her own, and she knows exactly where to find everything. For the bins that hold things such as paint, I put these child locks on them, and they work like a charm.


Organizing your children’s toys can often feel like cleaning a hurricane-hit home. However, with a few creative hacks, you can quickly and easily turn the chaos into order. Investing in the right types of storage bins and containers, creating a designated ‘toy zone’, and teaching your child to help with clean-up are all great ways to make the job simpler. The key is to be patient, consistent, and organized. By doing this, you will set your family up for fun-filled, organized adventures that will last for years to come. So, take a deep breath and get ready to make toy organization a priority in your home.

now that you have all the toy organization hacks…it’s time to put them into action!
