Organizing toy cars have never been so stylish. Superglue a small magnet to the undersides of toy cars for an easy DIY hack. FINTORP black magnetic knife bars are slightly cheaper than KUNGSFOR steel bars, but ultimately it’s all about the look you’re going for.

If you’re worried about the cars losing speed with a weighted magnet underneath them, try using velcro and a wooden stripboard. Be sure to use the thinnest velcro possible!
