This wooden toy box provides a spacious home for dolls and trucks. The sturdy wood container doubles as a seat, and a practical safety hinge keeps the lid from shutting on an unsuspecting child. An espresso finish complements the simple design nicely....more
This toy box looks exactly like the picture and is heavy duty, solid, beautiful wood. It took about 30 minutes to put together --much less, without the *help* of my 14-month-old. It's very sturdy, holds all of the toys that had escaped all over the house, and my son can reach in and get what he needs. He even climbed in to stomp around and then sat on the top. The hinges are perfect in that they stop in whatever position the child leaves the lid in, so no slamming down or slowly falling on them. There is also an indention in the front of the box so that if the lid comes down, little fingers will not be in danger of getting pinched. I'm so so pleased with this purchase --and there were no reviews when I ordered it, so I was taking a leap of faith. So glad that I did!

This toy box perfectly matches my grandson's espresso bedroom set. I didn't want a toy chest that was too "babyish" and I think he'll be able to use this for a long time. Assembly was easy, my husband and I built it in 1/2 an hour. It is sturdy enough and the quality is decent, certainly better than I expected for the price I paid. I like that the front of the box is lower so that little fingers can't get smashed, and was pleased to find that there were handholds cut into the sides to be able to pick it up and move it if necessary. We did have a little issue with the lid not quite touching in the front, and it seems to be because of the design. We just put a little stick on felt pad on each front corner of the lid and it solved the problem. My only complaint is that the screw heads are exposed on both sides. It's not a big deal because they are on the side, but it would have been nice if they had included wooden plugs to cover them. To dress it up a little, I've ordered a little brass plate with his name on it. I think he'll get years of use out of it.
This toy box is great! I love that it won't slam shut no matter how far open you have it - very clever. The only risk for getting fingers caught is on the sides. It's very spacious and looks good amongst other furniture that I bought elsewhere that was also labeled as "espresso". I'm happy with this purchase.

Love this toy chest for the nursery we're working on for our unborn baby! Great quality, real wood! cherry/espresso color. Using it to store baby blankets and stuffed animals. Love that the lid doesn't slam down on little fingers/hands! So far we love it, hope it lasts a lifetime!
Very happy we found this toy box. We had been looking for one for our living room that would be great for all the toys and would work for blankets or other things as the kids got older. This is perfect and doesn't break the bank. Husband put it together in less then 30 minutes and it holds so much. Our 15 month old son and get stuff in and out pretty easily - obviously as he gets older and taller it will be easier. Overall great product and we had it within two business days.
I uses this toy box to store my extra quilts in. It has a place on the top to sit and instead of making a cushion seat, I use my quilts on top covered with a nice fabric to sit on. Very nice piece of furniture.
I was weary of this because I thought it was more expensive than other toy boxes I've seen - but it really works great. I LOVE that the hinges keep the lid up once opened, so it won't slam on fingers. My 1.5 year old son is constantly climbing in and sitting in it, so even better than it doesn't bang shut. It's big enough for almost all the toys - I'm even contemplating buying another one for extra storage. I would recommend to any parent who has kids constantly going in and out of their toys - super safe and I put it together by myself in about 30 minutes.
Hello brooklynbinky, I'm sorry I could not find that we have this available in white. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 1, 2014
I know the overall height of this is 24.25 inches, but how high is the actual storage compartment?
The box looks like it may sit an inch or so from the ground, and, from the picture, it looks like it may have a piece of trim on top that is at least 6 inches high. I'm guessing the interior height may be around 15 inches.glamourgal2 on Jul 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
