How to Store Playmobil in Playroom

Updated February 21, 2017

The Playmobil company sells toys for children age 4 and up. The toys feature small plastic people integrated with themes. Each theme has pieces that assist children's imaginative play. There are many themes to choose from, including a beach scene, a family camper or a pirate adventure, just to name a few. There are literally hundreds of tiny pieces that go with the Playmobil sets, so storage is definitely needed to avoid losing pieces.

Using a hot glue gun, glue smaller pieces on to avoid pieces being misplaced, such as hats to the heads of toy people.

Purchase clear storage container bins with lids. Purchase deep containers for the larger set pieces and smaller, shallow containers for the tiny pieces. Cut a photo off of the box or from a catalogue of the Playmobil set and tape it to the outside of the corresponding container for easier finding later.

Visit an online toy storage bin website like Storage containers concealed beneath a bench or within a rolling compartment shelf are effective space savers for toys that have many pieces. They also offer storage baskets that hang from the wall or ceiling with smaller compartments within the basket. These companies will ship to your door and sometimes offer free shipping, saving you time and money.

Separate the smaller toys that you want to store. Write on the outside of a plastic zippered baggie with a permanent marker which Playmobil theme toys will go in that baggie. Place the baggie into the corresponding larger bin. This will help you keep up with the smaller pieces.
