Toy Chests To Clear The Clutter

If you want a solution to the abundance of toys scattered all over your house, get your kids a toy chest they’ll love. It’s a great place to throw everything in at the end of the day and will make a cool piece of furniture to add to their room

 

Children’s Toy Box

Classic Toys Design

A great solution for storing toys, the Churchfield toy box is made to order and has a full range of eye catching designs to choose from. From sail boats and classic cars to patchwork elephants and songbirds, there’s sure to be something your kids will love. The well designed lid top has a useful pull tab and a gap cut away to stop little fingers getting trapped. With a soft fabric top it would also make a useful seat.

The toy box conforms to stringent British Standard Fire Retardancy Regulations, as you’d expect and if you want to co-ordinate the design to other things in the room, they also make matching bean bags, chair beds and lose chair covers.

Prince George’s Toy Box

A Toy Box Shared With The Future King

If you’re after something really special, this toy box from Dorothy & Theodore is made from solid pine, beautifully hand crafted and finished in an antique wax. Designed to be unique, each box is made using Swedish timbers grown in sustainable forests.

If the kids aren’t old enough to be impressed by that, just tell them that the same box was given to Prince George from No 10 Downing Street at his christening.The rope handles and hand carved detail add traditional charm and a clever slow closing mechanism ensure no trapped hands. For that extra personal touch you can have eight letters carved into the front with a teddy and soldier. A box to treasure.

Noah’s Ark Toy Chest

Noah's Ark Toy Box

There’s a timeless charm about Noah’s Ark and the tale of all the animals is something kids usually love. Made from natural rubber wood this chest from John Lewis offers a great combination of tradition and modern design.

There are four loveable animals imprinted on the outside panels – a monkey, crocodile, giraffe and lion and like most newly designed toy chests, there’s a cut out front panel with a lock and stay hinge, to ensure little fingers stay safe. With fun vibrant colours this is a solid piece of furniture. It would make a great addition to any toy room or bedroom and is big enough to get a fair few toys hidden away. It’s also great value for money.

John Lewis, www.johnlewis.com, £69
