Children love to play, and having a variety of toys gives them a chance to use their imagination to the fullest. Of course, parents prefer to keep a child’s bedroom or playroom neat and organized, which is why toy boxes and storage are so important when owning a multitude of toys. Pottery Barn Kids not only provides furniture pieces that you need to keep your child’s toys safe and off the floor when not in use, but they do so with items that are cute and stylish. No matter the theme or colour scheme in your child’s room, we have a toy box to match.
There are so many different ways your child can use his or her toy box. The box can hold a collection of stuffed animals just as well as a few sets of sporting equipment. Little girls may wish to have a toy box for their dolls, while little boys use one to keep their army men together. You can even start young and get a toy chest to hold all of your baby’s toys. Rattles, baby blankets and balls fit nicely in a toy chest. If you have a large number of books, you can use the box for them too.
One of the best things about our toy boxes is that they can be personalized. Have your child’s name engraved on the front and use it to hold a few of his or her favourite gifts and keepsakes or simply have the box labeled with the items you intend to place inside them. For example, you may have one toy box that reads “trucks” and another one that reads “games.” If you go with your child’s name, you don’t have to go with his or her full name. Stick with the child’s first or last initial, or have the box personalized with all three initials. It’s even possible to get a toy chest with a Batman logo on the front.
Whether your child’s bedroom is spacious or on the smaller side, we have a toy chest or storage unit that fits. Traditional toy boxes work well when placed at the end of a bed and have the capacity to hold a great deal of toys. They are also perfect for storing an extra set of sheets and blankets. Our basket toy chests are much smaller and fit under beds and in closets when you need to maximize the space you have. Another option is to go with one of our storage bins, which can be stacked up on top of each other, or placed side-by-side. Some even have dividers so you can place colouring books on one side and crayons and markers on the other.
Many of our toy boxes and storage chests also serve a dual purpose. They give your child additional seating. Many of the toy boxes have a hard and sturdy surface that fits two children at a time. There’s also an upholstered toy chest with a cushioned bench on top. A child can sit on the bench and read his or her favourite story, or lay down on it and take a nap.
Each of the toy boxes and storage pieces consist of the utmost care. We design them so that when a child closes the lid after placing toys inside, he or she does not pinch any fingers. Also, they consist of solid hardwood and a medium density fibreboard that lasts for years to come. You’ll find the most common colours are white, smoked oak and chocolate, but you can also get the toy boxes in black, midnight navy and charcoal gray.
