DIY Stuffed Animal Zoo


If you’re a parent, you’ll know how stuffed toys seem to both miraculously multiply and migrate to every corner of the house. They’ll even sometimes make a break for freedom and somehow manage to get as far as the yard!  They also have a habit of taking up an enormous amount of space. But try convincing a child to donate some of those toys and they’ll look at you as though you have three heads. Suddenly, every toy is their ‘favorite’!

DIY Stuffed Animal Zoo - Finished

In most houses, floor space is at a premium so a storage system that will allow toys to be kept vertically makes lots of sense. Better still, it’s a great way to teach youngsters how to keep things organized so that they always know where to find what they want.

You’ll need these materials:

  • 2 pcs of 1x2x8 Lumber
  • 4 pcs of 1x3x8 Lumber
  • 100 ft Rope
  • Primer
  • Wood Paint
  • Screws
  • Screw Eyes

And these tools:

  • Saw
  • Drill – with a drill bit set
  • Sander
