I would say to assess your kids toys first, how many they have, and the ages of your children. The most important part about kids storage is making it accessible for kids to want to organize too!

Clear toy drawers are easy for little hands, as are lined baskets and open shelving. For larger items, utilize toy boxes, and also purge toys regularly as kids grow so you don't have more to organize than necessary.

Look at this idea book for other helpful toy organization:

7. Intersperse short items with tall items. Even if your objects don’t necessarily carry a theme amongst themselves, you can still create a thoughtful, balanced presentation by concentrating on the size and height of items. Complement shorter, lighter items with taller, heavier items and vice-versa, varying their placement throughout the shelves.
6. Don't box it all away. When your children tire of well-loved toys, consider putting them on display instead of boxing them away. Having them in view just may reinspire their use, saving you room in the garage and money in your wallet.

Think about the scale of your objects and whether a grid of boxes, built-ins or floating shelves would be the best way to show off the objects you’re passionate about. The display is key to giving the objects the respect they’re due, whether they’re train cars on long, narrow shelves …
