Where do you store your dc little toys?

My dc have so many small toys, Lego figures, playmobil people, random odd bits. Whenever I put them in the toy box they always ask where something is, which usually results in tipping it all back out to find the little toy.

Just wondering where other people store these little bits so they can be easily found.

Tupperwear boxes with lids or shoe boxes inside larger storage boxes.

Yeah I try to save plastic boxes with lids for things like that. Same for jigsaws as the boxes always seem to get broken

I put the small bits in see-through plastic boxes and then these boxes go in the IKEA kallax just for toys. It gives me peace and serenity!

I got a load of drawstring laundry bags/reusable veg bags in different sizes and they’re great for collecting up random bits of toys and games etc.

Plastic boxes and Kallax here too

I bought some cheap plastic baskets from b&m, labelled them up (cars, animals, dinosaurs, figures etc) and then put them on a shelf. I also cut out some relevant pics from one of DSs magazines for each label so he can see what goes where and help tidy them up.

We’ve got 2 of those £15 plastic drawers from wilko. They’re filled with lego, small toys, marbles and odd bits. They tip out a drawer, play and then fill the drawer up again before putting away.
