I've got a plastic 3 drawer unit on castors for all DD's SF bits. One drawer has SF bits, the other has Barbie clothes and shoes etc in it. The drawers aren't exactly gorgeous but it makes no odds to us as they are in a big walk in cupboard in her room.

It sounds similar to what I have been looking for NDP - but needs to look OK as it will be out on show - ideally pink and cheap!! - any ideas???

My eldest DD (now 14) was mad on these. Bought her a wheely suitcase from Disney Store and she has everything stored in there. She won't let her little sister (5) play with her Sylvanians although they are now not used and stored in a cupboard in her bedroom. Her excuse is that they cost a lot of money and her sister doesn't appreciate they are fragile. It took a lot of time to build up her collection.

Within the wheely suitcase we bought some plastic storage boxes (small rectangular with a lid) that she used to store all the separate items in (kitchen, bedroom, etc).

thanks Bumblelion - A large crate with smaller boxes inside maybe the way to go - I am immersed in Ikea storage at the moment on the web but got diverted by sofa beds! - that will not solve the sylvanian family problem!!!
