Little boys have cars… lots of cars. Yes little girls can have a lot of cars too, I just don’t have a little girl around me. My son has been collecting Matchbox cars since before he was a year old. He loves them. For a while there I think he was more obsessed with them. Thankfully they are fairly inexpensive. But how do you store all the cars that your child has been collecting for over 3 years? Matchbox has a toy car sorter, but have you really seen it? It’s pretty cheaply made for how expensive it is. But also keep in mind that if a boy has Matchbox cars then chances are he will have other cars of various sizes.
So how do we store our cars? In a tackle box. I’m not talking a child’s size tackle box, but ours has 3 levels with a big opening in the bottom for larger or oddly shaped vehicles. We went all out. The tackle box can hold at least 100 cars! But what’s even better is that I spent $25. It’s sturdy enough that it can be carried anywhere and I don’t have to worry about it breaking and all the cars spill out everywhere!
