Toy Boxes

Toy Boxes with Illustrated Lids


Toy Boxes Dovetail jointAll of our Toy boxes are made out of solid wood using dovetail joints on all four sides. Our lids are very solid and incorporate 3 slow closing safety hinges. Our boxes are finished in a traditional style using a choice of Farrow & Ball colours.

The extra workmanship and materials that go into our boxes set us apart from others. They make wonderful pieces of furniture that will last for years and years.

A toy box with a girls or boys illustrated wooden lid is £375. All toy boxes can have the child’s name carved on the front at no further cost.

Our girls and boys illustrated lids are silk screened and sealed with exclusive images designed to capture every childs imagination.

We also have a choice of natural wooden lids or bespoke boxes.

  • Our wooden toy boxes are a generous size, 92cm long x 47cm deep x 47cm high, providing ample storage space.
  • Each toy box is built with solid wood from a sustainable source. We do not use MDF.
  • Traditional dovetail jointing on all sides of each toy box for maximum strength. (Boxes without dovetails will not stand the test of time)
  • Solid brass, chrome or black trunk handles for ease of carrying the toy chest rather than cut out holes.
  • The toy box base has been kept flush with the floor to prevent small items or dust gathering underneath the toy box.
  • Each toy box has 3 special slow drop pressure hinges fitted which allow the lid to stay open at any desired angle. The lid can not drop.
  • All our finishes are sealed in layers of acrylic varnish so that the surfaces can be wiped clean. We do not use wax which tends to mark very easily.
Toy Box Finishes

All our toy box bases are hand painted in a choice of ten Farrow & Ball heritage colours (shown below).

The standard toy box colours are:

If you have a particular colour in mind that you would like to be used on the base, other than those shown or any special requirements then please contact us and we will be happy to help.

The inside of the toy box is also sealed and hand finished so it is very smooth to the touch.

Personalising Childrens Toy Boxes

We felt that this was an important part of the toy boxes and so decided on a unique way of personalising each toy box by carving the child's name into the wood, rather than simply painting it on.

If you have a special requirement for the carving then please contact us and we will advise on what can be done.

Engraved Plaques

We are often asked to supply brass or silver plaques engraved with a personal message which we fix onto the inside of the lid so that it can be seen each time the lid is opened.

They cost £20 and you can have up to 15 words. Please let us know if you would like one.
