vintage car collection on shelves

Vintage truck collection displayed on floor to ceiling shelves.

Cars. Miniature cars. Large cars….and all sizes and types in between. Infatuation with cars begins when boys are young and miniature cars quite often become the largest collection by the time your boys become teens.

Collection displays can double as storage when young kids are still having road races with their cars so provide ample space at or below eye level for easy reach. Displays are a wonderful way to teach boys to organize by color, size, or even favorite model.

Check out these creative yet simple ideas that put toy cars on display just like a model car showroom in miniature. Just remember to make it sturdy for safety’s sake!

toy car storage idea for boys room

Simple shelves mounted in a row on the wall does double-duty work—collection display and easy clean up for the little guy who still plays with cars.

pvc pipe for car collection storage

PVC pipe cut, joined and mounted on a wall looks like a honeycomb car garage. Great display idea for a kid’s treasure trove of miniature cars.

magnetic car mural

Magnetic strips are a fabulous way to show off all the miniature cars in a collection, make them readily accessible for play and create a unique art wall.

car rack storage on wall

A well-loved and much circulated idea by Lumberjocks, this custom rack puts cars at kid height for easy retrieval, organization, and unique display.

crate car storage in boys room

Shadowbox crates with multiple slots or old drawers recycled and fitted with spacers can house a kid’s miniature car collection. Leave on the floor when kids are small then mount to the wall as they get tall enough to reach or play with less often.

Wall, floor, shelf or window sill are all great options for displaying a car collection but make sure the container is cool……cool cars deserve the best “kid garage” in the house. Just ask your son. He’ll agree with me.
