I have a bunch of these in several colors -- there's a shelf built into the bedroom wall of my tiny apartment and not much closet space, let alone room for a dresser, so these are the ideal solution. They're relatively cheap, very effective, and they look much better than having all my clothes hanging out in plastic totes.
I love the lime green color it matches my son's bed set perfectly! The boxes almost seem to be reinforced with some sort of cardboard so they are pretty sturdy. They hold up to the daily use of being pulled out to get clothes and to put clothes away. I am going to use this brand of storage bins again to redecorate my house room by room!
I purchased this toy box for our son, and so far we love it. My son is always pulling toys out and playing. He loves this toy box because he can sit on it and play or read his books. The simple colors will go great with and bedroom theme he might choose in the future. I, also, purchased the pink and brown polka dot toy box for our daughter. Both are great buys!
We wanted a toybox for our infant son that he wouldn't bang his head onto while learning to walk and would also serve as a temporary seat by the window. The sides are soft and isn't too hard to clean small messes off of. The hinges for the lid are safe keeping the top from slamming shut and there's room between the sides and the top for air just in case he gets stuck inside. It is pretty heavy but I guess all big wooden boxes would be. It was shipped in a big cardboard box and was not damaged and everything is great. The only thing I don't like is a very strong plywood smell inside the box but that will probably wear away over time.
I love this toy box. It is a great way to hide toys in a living space while still looking grown up.
My one complaint,
I ended up buying this exact toy box from [...]. I am an extremely loyal Target customer so this is hard to admit. I found that [...] sold the exact same box with free shipping and it arrived one week earlier than Target had promised. I saved over [$] on the shipping alone.
Advice to other parents, shop around.
This is a great toy box since it doesn't look like one! My son can open and close it safely on his own and he's 20 months! We think it's a great value as we compared it to many toy boxes before buying. We love the soft easily cleanable fabric for our sons room or any other room in the house - it's so versatile!
The only thing that disappointed us is that the fabric was dirty when it arrived due to the fact that it rubbed thru the thin plastic bag in shipment. My husband cleaned it right off with only water so we know before we even used it that it will clean as easily as it says! Yay for that - so all they need to do is package it better for shipment and it won't arrive dirty for other customers.
I LOVE this toybox, so I gave it 5 stars. It's cute, matches everything and well made.
BUT, just wanted to warn everyone... I was moving it across the room today, and the little pads on the bottom of it just popped right off. Wouldn't be a big deal, but they have a big NAIL sticking out of them. 2 of them came off when I moved it. So I flipped it over, and the other 2 pulled out so easily.
The scary part is, I moved the box and didn't see they had come off. My twins were playing just a couple feet from where 2 extremely sharp small nails sat. My advice is to just pull them out when you get it. Shouldn't stop you from getting it, just remove them when you get the toy box.
I still think it's a great box, I just want the kids to be safe!
