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.
Best Overall: Morezi Large Dog Toy Storage Box with Lid
Collapsible with removable divider
Nearly 20 colors and patterns
Has lid and handles
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
Easy-access flap that also can be closed
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
Two sizes and so many colors
Less costly than most
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.
Best Splurge: Bone Dry Bone Shape Hyacinth Toy Basket
Attractive, natural material
Three sizes and four neutral colors
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 Extra Large Natural Open Top Canvas Tote Bag
Outside pocket and four inside pockets
Lots of sizes and colors
Reinforced bottom and handles
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.
Best Wood: Richell Elegant Wooden Dog Toy Box
Rubber feet keep it from moving
More expensive than others
Has to be assembled
For toy storage that looks like a nice piece of furniture, this handsome crate is made of smooth dark-stained wood. It has an open top so pets can pick and choose what they’d like to play with and comes in two sizes based on the size of your dog or the size of your toy collection. There are rubber feet on the bottom to keep it from skidding across the floor. It’s substantial (the medium weighs just over 8 pounds) and requires some minimal assembly before use.
Best Bag: Auchen Canvas Storage Bag
Less expensive than many
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
Made of sustainable jute
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 Toy Box: Our Pets Big Bone Storage Container
Easy to clean
More expensive than some
Inside edges can be rough
When your pet has a ton of toys (or just a bunch of very large ones), you need a spacious place to store them all. This bone-shaped storage box is very roomy and has a lid so you can hide playthings out of sight. It’s made out of plastic, which is easy to clean if your pup’s toys get slobbery. That means you can also leave it outside for outdoor toys like balls and Frisbees. The box may get wet, but the toys should stay mostly dry.
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
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.
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.
