For this article, we are going to share 4 toy car storage case ideas from the store which are made of different materials from sturdy plastic, acrylic to beech hardwood.

1. TAKARA TOMY Tomica Parking Case 24

The TAKARA TOMY Tomica Parking Case is one of my favorite for a long time although it is more expensive compared to other display case. The reason I love it is due to the fact it is made of sturdy material, can store, stack and play at the same time. The drawers slide open and close with ease. It can fit 24 Tomicas with a total of 10 Tomicas in each drawer and 4 on the parking lot on top. Hot Wheels, Matchbox or other similar toy cars / diecast can fit in as well. However, the cars in the parking case will be jumbled up if kids carry and shake it or handle it roughly as there are plenty of spaces between the two drawers.

 

The parking case can be stacked on top of each other. With each stacking as shown in the picture above, there will be 4 Tomicas storage less.

 

The parking case can be stacked with other different designs of Tomica storage case of similar sizes. The one shown in the picture above is a police car shoot base.

 

Besides storage, this parking case adds fun for kids or even adults like us whereby the two level car parks can be joined as a bridge with another parking case using a rail which comes with each parking case. The rail can be turned into a ramp as well for the mini cars to go up and down the roof of the car parks.

  1. I wish I had these display cases as a kid. When I received these as a gift when I was young, they would come in a large polystyrene box that I would keep as each vehicle had a slot that the manufacturer sent the vehicle in. Unfortunately over time the box did start to look a little battered but the cars stays protected. 

    There is so much cooler stuff available now than when I was young, makes one almost want the time again.

    • Richard, good that the cars stay protected. The box did serve its purpose after all. Now, new stuffs keep coming up with more improvements. Catching up with the times 😉

      Cheers, Rac

  2. I didn’t know those cases existed until I read your article. This is a really good way to encourage kids to organize their cars, after they finish playing with them. Also, if you have a collection of cars, you can put on a shelf and get a great looking of them when you have visitors. 

    I don’t know if you have any suggestions of cases for cars that are still on their original pack ?

    I was a really good article, not a lot of people write about this.
