    The toy storage system shown is fine. However, the best toy storage meets the following 5 criteria:

    1. Kids only need a few, high quality toys available.
    2. Kids want to be able to SEE where the toys are when they go looking for one. So make sure you use clear plastic bins.
    3. Each toy should have a specific place or “home” where it belongs when done playing with it.
    4. Kids should never have to face the daunting task of picking up dozens of toys at once.
    5. A toy in the hand or on the floor that the child is done playing with should still have “value” in exchange for a new toy.

    The One at a time toy cabinet I built for my grandson meets all 5 of these criteria, especially by requiring him to put a toy back before being able to get another toy. Check out this video.
