We have a LOT of toys, which is understandable because we have a lot of children. We get rid of any toys that are not used often or at all, at our garage sales. The toys that we keep are the kiddies' favorites and we have a lot of each kind. So when they play they could all play and have enough. We store the toys in bins on these storage shelves in an extra room in the basement. The bins make it easy to see what is in them and they stack nicely.
