A durable, practical toy box helps keep all your dog’s playthings relatively organized—if your dog ever lets you put them away.

We researched dozens of bins, boxes, and bags looking at size, material, and how easy they are to use and clean. Our top pick, the Morezi Dog Toy Box with Lid features two compartments, a removable divider, and a split lid that attaches via Velcro.

Here are the best dog toy storage options.

Our Top Picks

Best Overall

Morezi Large Dog Toy Storage Box with Lid

5
Morezi Large Dog Toy Storage Box with Lid

Amazon

What We Like
  • Collapsible with removable divider

  • Nearly 20 colors and patterns

  • Has lid and handles

What We Don't Like
  • Not as big as some

This soft-sided box is a great all-around choice for durability, practicality, and style. It has two compartments so you can separate your pup’s favorite things and each half has its own lid. If you just need one big container, the divider easily pops out. The lids shut with Velcro and are split so you can open just one side if you’d like for your dog to go rummaging. The handles make it easy to tote around, or place wherever it will be most convenient in the moment.

We particularly loved Morezi for its combination of structure and soft-side flexibility. Its woven fabric feels high-quality, and provides soft enough corners that a clumsy puppy isn't going to hurt themselves against it. At the same time, Morezi's Dog Toy Storage Box has enough structure to stand up to some rough handling, making it both durable and flexible enough that you can squeeze it into that gap in your shelves. Plus, the whole box is collapsible, so you can store your dog toy storage box.

The box comes in 19 colors and patterns and most are subtle, neutral shades of gray, beige, and khaki.

Best for Dog Access

BarkBox Felt Toy Bin

BarkBox Felt Toy Bin

Amazon

What We Like
  • Easy-access flap that also can be closed

  • Minimalistic look

  • Soft felt

What We Don't Like
  • Might be attractive to some chewers

This gray felt basket is really sleek and minimalistic. But your dog doesn’t have to knock it over to get all the toys out. Instead, it has a foldable flap that slips into a tab on the side so that your pet can get a good look and choose easily. To keep all toys contained or for a cleaner look, snap the side closed at the top. There are two black felt handles for carrying and although the felt is soft, it’s sturdy enough that the bin doesn’t collapse.

Best Budget

Bone Dry Paw Lattice Print Rectangle Dog Storage Bin

Bone Dry Paw Lattice Print Rectangle Dog Storage Bin

Amazon

What We Like
  • Two sizes and so many colors

  • Less costly than most

What We Don't Like
  • Can arrive wrinkled

For a basic bin, this rectangular toy container is still cute and stylish. It comes in two sizes and nine different subtle colors, ranging from gray and stone to aqua and nautical blue. The polyester fabric is durable and easy to wipe clean and each basket has a stylish lattice and paw print design. It has two sturdy rope handles and can fold away flat when you don’t need it. It may be wrinkled on arrival, but try popping it in the dryer for a few minutes until soft, then stuff with clean towels until it holds its shape.

Amazon

What We Like
  • Attractive, natural material

  • Three sizes and four neutral colors

  • Sturdy

What We Don't Like
  • Material can flake off

  • More expensive than most

Available in four neutral earthy colors, this bone-shaped basket is sturdy and attractive. Similar to rattan, it’s made out of a natural water hyacinth material woven onto a metal frame to keep its shape. The wicker-like container comes in three sizes and is shallow enough that most dogs should be able to browse without issues. The natural material can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. Be aware that sometimes small pieces flake off and can jut out of the box.

Best Customizable

Lands’ End Natural Open Top Canvas Tote Bag

Lands’ End Canvas Tote Bag

Lands’ End

What We Like
  • Outside pocket and four inside pockets

  • Lots of sizes and colors

  • Reinforced bottom and handles

What We Don't Like
  • Spot clean only

Available in dozens of colors and designs and in four sizes, the iconic Land’s End tote bag isn’t specifically for pet toys, but it’s a rugged option for storing and hauling your dog’s stuff. You can make it personal with your dog’s initials or yours. The bottom and the handle are reinforced and the bag is tested to hold as much as 500 pounds. (That’s a lot of toys!) The base is water-resistant and the whole bag can be spot cleaned as needed.

Dimensions: 13 x 5.5 x 9 inches (small); 17 x 6 x13.5 (medium); 22.5 x 9.5 x 17 (large); 26 x 10.25 x 17.5 (extra-large)︱Material: Cotton canvas

Best Bag

Auchen Canvas Storage Bag

Auchen Canvas Storage Bag

Amazon

What We Like
  • Less expensive than many

  • Cute designs

  • Washable

What We Don't Like
  • Not convenient for everyday toy use

  • Not as big as others

Maybe you have loads of extra toys or you just want to tuck yours away mostly out of view. These linen storage bags are like oversized pillowcases that are technically for kids’ toys or laundry. But with the cute happy and sleeping pup faces, why not use them for dog gear? There’s a drawstring at the top to keep everything contained and they can be tossed in the washer if they get too stinky or slobbery.

Best Classic Design

Harry Barker Classic Dog Toy Bin

Harry Barker Classic Dog Toy Bin

Amazon

What We Like
  • Attractive

  • Made of sustainable jute

What We Don't Like
  • Smaller than many

This stylish tan canvas toy bucket from Harry Barker is decorated with laurel wreaths for some classic design. It’s made of 100% jute, a natural eco-friendly fiber that is sustainable and biodegradable. The fabric is soft but sturdy, so the basket bounces back when a dog goes excitedly exploring inside for toys. The bin can be spot cleaned, but not washed. Some versions have handles.

Best Wood

Pillowfort Large Wood Milk Crate Toy Storage Bin

Pillowfort Wood Crate

Target

What We Like
  • Natural wood grain finish

  • Two cutout handles

  • Square shape and stackable

  • Neutral design blends with most decor

  • No assembly required

  • Spot or wipe clean

What We Don't Like
  • No option to personalize with pet's name

The Pillowfort Large Wood Milk Crate Toy Storage Bin has a neutral wood grain finish that will blend in with various styles of home decor. No assembly is required so you can tidy up your dog's toys as soon as it arrives. There are two handle cutouts to help you move the bin as needed but it's not the most lightweight option. It's deep so you can fill it up with plush squeakers, ropes, balls, and more. It's also sturdy, stackable, and square-shaped so you can easily place it in any space.

Final Verdict

Our overall favorite pick is the Morezi Dog Toy Box with Lid which has two compartments and lids, a removable divider, and comes in many neutral colors and patterns. We also recommend the BarkBox Felt Toy Bin, a sleek soft felt bin with a foldable flap that can let your pup see all the toys and choose easily.

What To Look For in a Dog Toy Storage

Material

You can find bins, boxes, or bags made out of fabric, plastic, cloth, or other materials. Some, like bags, can be tossed into the washer. Plastic containers are easy to clean. They even can be hosed down and scrubbed outside. Most other options have to be spot cleaned with a damp cloth. Dogs that like to gnaw on things might be more likely to chew on some materials over others. If your dog likes slippers, for example, you might want to avoid a felt bin.

Size

Take a good look at your pet’s toy collection, then check the dimensions when choosing toy storage to make sure everything will fit. If you want your pup to be able to browse the collection, opt for a bin that is low enough to allow a good eye’s view. Some of our experts prefer to have several toy boxes in different rooms and others have smaller containers and swap out toys to keep their dogs from getting bored.

Ease of Use

Look for handles if you’re going to be moving your storage bin around or for a lid if you want to hide the toys away when they’re not in use. If you want a bin to take on vacation or when your pup is going on a sleepover, find one that is collapsible so it can be tucked away when you don’t use it.
