A Genius Matchbox Car Storage Solution

Today Kim Valle from the blog At Home with Kim Vallee shared this photo and idea with her readers on a genius idea on toy car storage. The only caveat is that these cars must be made of metal so those of you with eco-friendly wooden or recycled plastic cars are out of luck.

This image and idea originally came from The Style Files and the magnetic strips can be purchased from Ikea. Anyone have a good solution for these darn Thomas The Train cars that end up all over my house including in my bed? Somehow they manage to travel right off that train table and never end up in their storage bins!

But back to the magnetic strips, the were used in a post I made a few months ago on ideas for hanging children's artwork -here.


  1. Typical matchbox cars do not stick to the ikea strips. We have over 400 cars (old ones and new) and just tried 20 or so.

  2. I like the way to storage a car. It's wonderful.
