by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Keeping the kids toys tidy and organised starts with good storage solutions and the key is to make it really easy for the kids to place everything back where it belongs when they have finished with it.  I’ve found some clever toy storage idea’s for train tracks, hope they inspire you!

Toy Storage Idea: Train Tracks

Reader Letitia sent in this picture of her clever solution for train track storage.  She uses under bed plastic shoe boxes from The Reject Shop.


I stored my kids train sets in the baskets in our Ikea Expedit.

I tried searching for an Australian stockist of this trundle, but couldnt find one.  Most Bed shops sell underbed trundles, which can then be adapted into toy storage. image credit unknown.


Use a couple of Ikea Grundtal knife racks to hold trucks and trains for easy access. Idea found via Just a Girl.

Train tables seem to be very popular, I’ve shared some links to Australian stockists below. Love Grows Wild has used the table and similar ikea storage unit to organise kids toys.

I’ve made an underbed train table trundle. I sprayed some particle board with green spray paint. I then nailed some beading around three of the edges and varnished it. Screwed two door handles into the fourth edge for gripping and moving the trundle in and out from the bed. I then had two “beams” to make the “table” that ran underneath the short length of the table and attached castors underneath the beams. I made it high enough such that the lowest height Ikea trofast buckets could be slid under it.

It’s awesome. So easy to “pack away” the train set. Gets used heaps and very simple to make.
