This question is sort of along the same lines, but dealing with storage. My collection has outgrown the space I have to display it, so I've found myself packing more and more stuff away in rubbermaid totes. I've always pretty much kept those totes in the storage areas in our basement/laundry room, but since that is our main storage areas for other stuff (Christmas decorations, etc.), the space is running low. Anyways, I thought about moving those out to our garage (or at least some of them), but I've always heard how harsh extremes are tough on toys. I live in Nebraska, so our summers are hot and humid and the winters can get freezing cold, so I know it isn't exactly "climate control" in our garage, but it isn't terrible either. I realize, in the end, that they are just toys and they aren't made to last a nuclear attack by any means. My question is, how hard would this type of storage area be on plastic toys? Would they show signs fairly quickly, or is this more of a "they might start breaking down/looking crappy in 10-20 years". It makes me think what I'd even be doing with this stuff when I'm 50, 60, etc. years old anyways, so why am I worried about it. Unless we move, display space won't be getting any bigger...and at this point I think I'd rather have a more condensed display anyways. Just wondering if anyone here stores stuff in places like this (garages, attics, etc.), and if it makes much of a difference.
