With the holidays approaching us and all those new Stuffed Animals that will be given to your kids – you may want to think about where you are going to put them all. Every year before Christmas I go through my kids toys and weed out what they do not play with any more. I usually donate them by bringing them to a local store which accepts them or I have been also going on Craigslist or Freecycle and asking if there may be a needy family that could use some toys. I know this year there we be a lot of them. It is a good way to also get the kids to part with some of their things. Knowing they are donating to a good cause and giving a toy to a child that may not otherwise have any is a good lesson for them.
Even with all the donations my daughter loves her Stuffed Animals and Plush and does have quite a bit of them she still cannot part with. This past year I discovered one of the best ways to organize them and it is with a product called The Zoo. The picture above shows her stuffed animals now organized and easily accessible for her to play with. I keep writing about this to get the word out to other parents for this has made such a huge difference in keeping them all neat and tidy. It also makes it easier for my daughter to find and play with them now vs. being all in a big bucket.
I have written all about it here: Stuffed Animal Toy Organizers and you can also see other ideas for storing and displaying all those Webkinz and smaller plush your kids may have too. They are all my own pictures shown and what I am using myself. Trust me I am the parent where everything has a home and when it does I am very happy. You will also be happy when you see you have great options. I know you will thank me.
