Nancy needs help handling the Stuffed Animal Invasion.
My kids are overrun with stuffed animals and they end up all over the floor. I need ways to keep them contained!
DON’T WE ALL? I mean, I can empathize.
There are plenty of creative stuffed animal storage ideas out there, but my absolute favorite is the Boon Animal Bag. This fuzzy bag (cuddly in its own right) rounds up the zoo and turns it into a comfy seat.
From the Boon website:
The first five stuffed animals are cute. But when 100 are scattered like furry road kill all over your house, it’s time to do something like tossing them into an Animal Bag that doubles as a snuggly seat.
Heh heh, furry road kill!
- Stuffed animal chain
- Toy hammock: fun suspended over the bed.
- Lightweight laundry hamper: I use this one from IKEA. It’s portable, collapsible, breathable, cheap, and it zips closed.
- Hanging shoe organizer: You know, the kind that goes over the door? (I’m a fan of shoe organizers all over the house.) Downside: tricky to get young kids to use these themselves as it’s hard to reach the top pockets.
