Toy boxes are a big necessity for keeping your child’s toys off the floor, they come in various different styles, sizes, and brands. The first thing you need to do is decide if your looking for a traditional toy box or a toy organizer. Toy boxes keep the toys off the floor and in the box where a toy organizer keeps the toys off the floor and also organizes them so that the child can find them easier in the future. Wooden toy boxes are the most classical and probably the most common, however they can be easily damaged because they are made out of wood and many toys can scratch and damage the wood just from normal wear and tare. Also they can be hazardous because the hinged top can smash little fingers and being that they are made out of wood when the lid comes down it is pretty heavy. An alternative to wooden toy boxes is plastic or rubber toy boxes which is great for really little children who might scratch or knick a wooden toy box if they play roughly. These toy boxes come in all different shapes and sizes and will keep your child’s toys safe while storing them in a convenient plastic or rubber tote. Lastly, when shopping for your child’s regular bedroom furniture look at all different sets because sometimes certain furniture sets come with stylish matching toy boxes that are an accent piece to the rest of the furniture within the room. When buying your child’s toy box you should first consider what the toy box will be used for and then consider which type of toy box suits your child the best. If your child is a rough player or has alot of large toys rubber or plastic toy boxes are the best and if you are looking to organize your child’s toys and toy organizer would suit your child better than a rubber, plastic, or wooden toy box or chest.
