Box of toy cars

We've all been there, walking around the house and all of a sudden we stand on a toy car - they seem to get everywhere, and damn, they're painful.

If your little car lover has a big collection, it can be hard to find storage for them; or maybe your tot isn't happy that they have to search through all their other toys and teddies to find the one car they really want right that moment. But with the right storage, they won't have to worry again.

Here are seven brilliant storage solutions for all those toy cars that'll fit easily into your home. Some of them even double up as a play set. The only thing you've got to do next is train your toddler to put their own toys away in the evening...

The perfect storage for those mini cars. With 80 large compartments, this box is not only great for giving those cars a home that end up in every nook and cranny in the house, but also a nice way for your little one to proudly display his collection. This is probably more suited to older children with a beloved collection of die-cast cars, rather than the ten million plastic ones they have when they're two. You can take the dividers out to make larger compartments if you need.
