I apologize if this has been asked previously. Most of DS's toys are oversized or fragile type trucks, trailers and tractors. He has a few Bruder trucks that do not seem to fit anywhere. We have limited space and I am looking to a storage solution for these large items. Any ideas?

Would they fit on a shelf in a bookcase?

We use to have a similar issue. But, my son has moved on to playmobil - now I have a different kind of problem - too many small parts ;-)


My thought was to put them under a desk or on top of a piece of tall furniture?

Subbing for ideas -- we just brought DH, DS1's, and DS2's Tonka trucks over from where they've been stored at my mother's for the last ten years.  I was wondering about milk crates or some cubbyish setup.  Oh, and DH got way too excited about being around them again.  :-)
