Cayden’s Farm- Stuffed Animal Storage Zoo


Cayden’s Farm

Stuffed Animal Storage Zoo

This is our newest stuffed animal storage, we wanted it to be more for a boy so we changed it up to look like a barn. Addies Zoo turned out so cute we just had to make one for all of Cayden’s animals. I hope you like it.


Bungee View



Basic Building Instructions: See Addies Zoo CLICK HERE we made a few changes with Caydens to make it more like a barn, we made this one 3′ x 5′ verses the 4′ x 6′ we did for Addies. We made the frame basically the same way but added a large panel of plywood I believe it was 1/4″ for the barn front, then cutting doors and adding hinges for the doors. We also changed how we did the bungee, we started on one side tied a knot and ran it up and down, then knotted the bottom end, doing this for each side (see above picture).

NOTE: there is always dangers when creating your own furniture used for children, this is simply an example of what we created for our own use. When recreating something like this, keep in mind we are not professionals and have not created this to meet safety standards, be sure to use supervision with your children of all ages, and take proper precautions. Children may try to climb in and on this item which can be very dangerous, there are many safety hazards to take into consideration if you build your own Stuffed Animal Storage.

    How would you rate the way you did the bungee in Cayden’s Farm rather then the way you did it in Addie’s Zoo? Would you say it’s more secure? Or do you like Addie’s zoo better? For the farm, did you drill holes to loop them through at the top/bottom phrame? In the picture for the bungee view, I can see very well what you did on one side, but I’m confused about how you did it on the front (barn side)? Is it supported up by the frame? Thanks.. I LOVE these ideas!!!

      I would definitely say I prefer the way we did Caydens farm for the bungee portion, the holes are drilled in the top of the frame and come out the bottom on the top brace and the bottom brace it is drilled trough the front of the frame and fed thru that way (if you look at the completed image you can see where the bungee goes in the front of the bottom brace. You can really do them any way you want that is just how we thought it would look the best (the bungee runs the full length of the farm and goes in behind the barn front).The front of the barn is mounted to the frame itself. Sorry I know its kind of confusing, I hope that helps a bit 🙂

    This looks great. Do you know the size of the bungee cord that you used? Also, how far apart did you space the bungees? Thanks so much.

      Thank you so much, I am guessing they are spaced about 3-4″ apart and we used 1/4″ x 100 FT. Shock Cord or Bungee cord 🙂

    Have you had any issues with it tipping when they pull out animals? Or did you anchor it to the wall at all?

    1. Sheena (Post author)

      I used to have Addies Zoo anchored when my daughter was younger just as an extra precaution, but now days it is no longer anchored and we move it all around her room. I dont have any problems with it tipping mainly because there is no floor in the either of our zoos. Thus being all the animals weight sits on the floor so it allows the zoo to be much more stable and also allows for us to easily remove the bottom items from it. 🙂

    How much did the supplies cost you for Addie’s v Cayden’s?

    What was the reason for the bungee attachment change? the first one seemed more secure to me since it used washers and screws to hold it down. Did you find the knot to work better?
