My toy box is a great addition to a child's bedroom or playroom. This is quality construction and a beautiful piece of furniture as much as it is a useful storage option. The size is about 30" long and 18" wide and 19" tall. I first made this toy box for my grandchildren and built it with safety in mind. It has a safety hinge approved by the consumer products safety commission which will not allow the top to crash down on little fingers. The top can be placed in any position and will not close unless you push it down. The hand holds on the sides are over sized to allow plenty of air if the toy box becomes a hiding place. The toy box is meant to last and can go off to school some day and make a great coffee table or storage chest in a dorm or apartment. The box is made of pine and stained and sealed with Danish oil. Check with me if you want a different stain. A different wood is possible at extra cost. I can also make the you a similar coffee table or blanket chest in a different size without the safety features.
