Easy to assemble and looks high quality

This was the perfect addition to our nursery. It was very easy to assemble and it looks and feels higher quality than what it actually is! Even though it is particle board with laminate, it is very stable. All of the pieces were cut evenly, so there is no "rocking" (like what can happy with some furniture that you have to assemble at home…) I especially like the child safety hinge. It has a hinge that’s not really a "slow close," but it requires you to push the lid down the whole way so it will never slam down. The slots in the top are good so that little fingers do not get slammed either 🙂

Quality toy box

This is a quality made toy box. I like how the hinge works on the lid so that it will not slam down on little fingers. When it arrived one of the boards was broken. Customer service was great and sent us a new piece right away.

love this trunk!

we love this toy chest for our living room- it fits in well with our current deco and actually holds more than I thought with the initial dimensions and measurements. have been pleasently surprised! also it is much heavier than I thought from reading the reviews of damaged shipments. it is very sturdy.

Nice hinge feature! Overall really nice.

Overall, really nice chest! Nice hinge feature – keeps lid from slamming. Beware of dragging this chest on hardwood floors, though. Scratches badly.

Love it

I use this as a toybox at the moment. I like that it was easy to put together. The top stays up, and if it did come down I don’t have to worry so much about his fingers getting slammed in it because there’s only a small part that makes contact with the top. Plus it’s not heavy because he can lift the top himself. It’s also a good size, but not overly huge like normal toyboxes. Plus, we can use it to store blankets, paperwork, etc in the future when it’s no longer needed as a toybox.

Awesome company to deal with!

This toy chest is very nice, has a solid feel to it, and looks great in our bedroom. Also easy to build.When the package showed up at our house, I could see damage on the box, sadly the top lid for the chest is the very top of the packaging meaning the damage on the box went straight through to the chest lid leaving a damaged mark on the lid. However, everything else in the package was fine.We went to the website in the manual and clicked on replacement parts, put in the model number, looked up the park number in the manual, gave a reason as to why it needs to be replace. "damaged from delivery" clicked ok. The next screen was for my address, I entered my info and hit ok, next screen said thank you, you will receive a tracking number as soon as your package ships. Zero credit card info needed, it just said ok, new part is on the way!3 days later, it shows up.AWESOME support!!!!!!!

Looks like a nice piece of furniture. Great toy box.

This looks like a nice piece of furniture in our house. Perfect for hiding the toys without losing the classy look of our family room addition.

It is a beautiful and simple chest

I am very pleased with the quality of this chest. I would have preferred it to be even bigger, as my child has a lot of toys, but finding any chest bigger for the affordable price would have been very difficult to find. The chest does compliment well in our living room, and hides the fact that it is a toy chest.

Great box, I’m in for two

Note the title, ready to assemble. Yes, assembly required. However, the good news is this one was fairly simple to put together.. everything is labeled well and everything fit. I bought one of these and was so happy with it, I purchased a second. Both boxes went together without a single hitch. My two year old enjoys climbing on and in the box too, and it has held up with that just fine.It’s not a huge box (see dimensions), but it’s about what I expected. I looks pretty good – it’s a simple design, but the wood and stain make it nice enough to go into a well decorated room. It’s certainly better than a cheap plastic toy box, or just toys laying around.Our crib is shoal creek, it’s been around for over two years, and it’s been through a few moves. Still holding up good, so my confidence in Shoal Creek is high.For the price of this box, you really can’t beat it. If you have a bunch of toys, you’ll probably need two… maybe next to each other, or one upstairs, one down?

Great Instructions, Excellent Safety Lid

I put this together all by myself, 7 months pregnant with the "help" of my toddler. It is one of the more complicated pieces of furniture I’ve assembled, but it had the absolute best directions, so it was super easy and straightforward. The instructions are very simple and clear, with good pictures and verbiage. All told, it took about an hour.When I was done I had a solid piece of furniture – attractive, classic, and durable. The closure on the lid requires gentle pressure to push the lid shut, protecting little fingers from being slammed. The slots allow plenty of airflow so nobody could suffocate playing hide-and-go-seek. It fits nicely at the foot of a twin-size bed.

Nice, large toy box that looks nice

I was able to put this together within an hour with minimal help from another person. The parts came in a one large bag, mixed in together, so it was a bit tedious picking out the parts that i needed for the step (especially when two were stuck together).It looks great in my livingroom and it doesn’t look like another piece of toy for my son. I also love that the top doesn’t slam down and it stays open if you lift the top. But it lost one star from me because I was expecting another surface to sit on, but the top only supports up to 75 lbs. I would’ve went with a different toy box had I known this before purchasing it.
