As many parents have found, discovering the perfect toy box is harder than it seems.  You have to carefully weigh several factors, like safety, design, and price.  But there is an easy process you can use to find the perfect toy box for your home and your family.

Start by deciding where you are going to put the box.  It doesn’t do you any good to bring home a toy story wooden toy box that you put into the living room, only to discover it really doesn’t go with anything.  By deciding prior to purchasing, you can save yourself a lot of time, frustration, and heartache.  You won’t have to go through the effort of assembling the box only to have to take it apart once you find you don’t like it.  If you are unsure, you can always get unfinished toy chests and finish and paint them yourselves.

Once you have  a basic color scheme/design in mind, you can start browsing online.  Online, you can find hundreds of different designs, while the stores only carry a few.  They often ship for free, so if you find one you like, you can order it or ask your local store to order it for you.  Plus, it saves you time and money in most cases.

While you are looking, you may want to have a tape measure handy.  That way, you can measure how big a toy chest really is.  There are a lot of inexpensive ones that are very small.  Save yourself the trouble and see how big it is before you spend on money on something that only holds a few items.

Finally, make sure that the toy box you get is safe by making sure it has slow close hinges and air holes.  This will prevent the lid from dropping on your child.
