Review: This is the third piece of furniture from this range we have been sent to review; Georgie already has the matching table & stool set and sling bookcase. This toy box compliments the other items she has perfectly, using the same shade pink and similar designs on the front panel.
The toy box came flat packed and was well packaged, with speedy delivery from Bambino Direct. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. It just requires a couple of screwdrivers to put together, and lived up to the promise of one person can do it in 15 minutes. It was easy enough to put together, although the fit of the pieces didn’t feel quite right to me, so I had to swap the end pieces around before it would go together square.
The lid just sits flat on top of the box, rather than being hinged. This has the benefit of it being harder for little fingers to get trapped – but when you take the lid off it easily slips down between the box. We have it up against the wall so it can be difficult for Georgie to retrieve the lid without help.
Georgie seems to really like her new box – we’ve put it next to her duplo bucket and she loves using it when she’s building things – either sitting on top of it and building on her lap, or standing and using it as a table for building on. It is a great height for toddlers and small children.
Being made of mdf, the quality is not as good as the solid wood toy boxes you can buy – but it is an awful lot more affordable!
Even though the only things Georgie would allow in there to begin with were a happyland “people man” or the dog, this toy box will hold a lot of toys. Georgie seems to have a mountain of soft toys (quite a few of which have been inherited from her Mummy, and yes, her Daddy too) and there are absolutely loads of them stored inside this toy box.
A toy box like this that small children can open themselves is great for encouraging them to both get their own toys out and also to encourage tidying up too!
This toy box is a good size to fit in different rooms – we have it in the living room at the moment but will be moving home soon and who knows where it will end up then?! It is ideal for any little girls room and isn’t too garish to be tucked away in the corner of a family room like we have.
We give this toy box 4 stars.
