Stuffed Animal Storage Solution

Over the years, my kids have accumulated quite a collection of stuffed animals.  We periodically do purges and give away some of our "extras" but they still have dozens that are their "favorites"!  I try to keep them contained in baskets and bins, but they still end up everywhere and look messy even when put away.  When I saw this idea on Pink and Green Mama to put the stuffed animals in a bean bag cover, I knew I had found the solution to our stuffed animal woes!  The girls can still play with them when they want to, but when they're not in use, they're tucked away in the pretty bean bag.

Check it out...


Doesn't it look sooo much better?   I found this bean bag cover at Bed Bath & Beyond, used a coupon and only paid about $10.  If you have a similar stuffed animal collection, this is the time of year to pick up a cover to contain them ~ they are pretty easy to find with the back-to-college stuff in the stores.

All we had to do was fill it up...


 Then sit back and relax with a good book!




 It's a little "lumpier" than a regular bean bag, but still comfy enough to make a good reading spot.  (Plus the room looks much better!)

 Thanks, Marylea at Pink and Green Mama for this awesome solution!  (Oh, and go check out her site, TONS of great ideas!)

  1. What a great and affordable idea. I always think a bean bag would be great, but it's so big, but this way it would serve a great purpose.

    1. Access to Health Care changes crosswise over nations, gatherings, and people, to a great extent impacted by social and monetary conditions and additionally the wellbeing approaches set up. Nations and purviews have distinctive strategies and plans in connection to the individual and populace based medicinal services objectives inside their social orders. Social insurance frameworks are associations set up to meet the wellbeing needs of target populaces. Their correct design differs amongst national and subnational substances. In a few nations and wards, human services arranging is disseminated among market members, while in others, arranging happens all the more halfway among governments or other planning bodies. In all cases, as per the World. Wellbeing Organization (WHO), a well-working social insurance framework requires a hearty financing instrument; an all around prepared and sufficiently paid workforce; solid data on which to base choices and approaches; and very much kept up wellbeing offices and coordinations to convey quality medications and advances.

  2. I am so doing this! We just packed 2 big garbage bags full of their "favorites" that moved into the closet and another bag to donate. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing, the great pictures got my daughter on board!

  7. What a super idea! I just started a linky party today for back to school ideas, fun organizing tips that might be helpful for homeschool families, and first day of school fun, and I would love for you to drop by and link this idea to the party! I think it is a very creative storage idea for helping keep a room neater and more organized!

  8. This idea is great! Maddie has quite the collection and we store it in a toy box at the foot of her bed. I wish I would have seen this sooner. She would love a comfy place to sit and read. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. Can you re zip the zipper? I bought one from BB&B and you can not open it once you zip it closed

      Delete
    2. Megan, the one I got can be re-zipped. I doesn't have an actual zipper pull. You just have to slip a safety pin or something through the end of the zipper so you can pull the zipper open or closed again. Hope this helps.

  23. I just got my BBB sales flyer in the mail and saw the bean bags wondering if animals would fit in the opening. Thanks for taking the guess work out of it for me. You saved me a trip to the store! I know what my girls are getting for christmas!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've found with my granddaughter that if I put her animals in bins/buckets/drawers, she doesn't play with them...just another thing to store. But, when "out and about", she picks some out everyday to play with. My guess is that if I put her animals into this, she would never play with them again! May as well just give them away....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you for this idea! This really worked, got our stuffed animals out of the garbage bag and into something useful. The bag cover only cost me $4.

  30. Awe thank you! I seriously just ordered this exact bag a few minutes ago and the price was reduced to $7.99 and no shipping costs since I'll pick it up. Thank you, thank you for the wonderful idea!

  31. I seriously have convulsions when I enter my daughters room. The number of stuffies would fill a toy store and she refuses to say goodbye to any of them. I have been racking my brain for years as to what to do with them all and this is genius! I am running out to the store tonight to buy one. Thanx!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Found this on Pinterest quite a while ago, and finally put this great idea to use! We are cleaning up my kids' rooms this summer, and went to BB&B for some covers. They were on clearance for $7.99, plus I bought 2 and used the $5 off $15 coupon. 2 covers for $11! And now my kids' rooms look so much neater! Thank you for sharing this!

  33. THANK YOU for posting this! Found it on Pinterest and it was exactly what I was looking for to corral our boys' stuffed animals. I even blogged about it here:

  34. I'll be looking at Michael's for one of these! My girls are 10 and 11, and they still hang onto their favorites, too...Would it be cheaper, though, to make my own chair cover? My local Walmart has increased their material section and reduced the prices greatly

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It would probably be cheaper, Monica. In fact, I contemplated doing the same, but I'm not super good at sewing anything more complicated than straight lines, so I didn't want to try to attempt a sphere with a zipper! ;)

  35. Does anyone know of a pattern for the bean bag?

    ReplyDelete
  36. If you like to have some out and some hidden and you are worried about kids actually playing with their toys, you can always rotate what is displayed/played with and what is stored in the chair. Keeps the play fresh and keeps the room organized so they can actually play. We have a toy bench in the room that I set all the animals on, but it's getting too full. I like the duel purpose of this idea and I can still have some sitting on the bench!
