As every parent is aware, without proper storage, your child can end up taking over every room in the house. From their baby products up to when they start playing with toys, their stuff litters every room, and they can leave a trail of destruction and belongings in their wake. While parents love playing with their little ones, and would in no way want to deprive them of their toys and games, it can be nice to clear up some floor space, and have areas of your home neat and tidy. Using easily accessible and spacious toy boxes means that your home can be enjoyed by both adults and children, and can provide you with some grown up space. Nothing is more painful than stepping on Lego, so to keep it all tucked away, a toy box is an absolute necessity.
Why A Wooden Toy Box?
While there are plenty of modern toy boxes, they often include gimmicks or characters that will soon become dated, and even if they’re durable, they won’t fit in with your home or your child’s room after a while. For this reason, the emergence of the classic wooden toy box has begun, with any parents opting for the neutral and traditional wood, that is a timeless and high quality piece of furniture, that’s durable and can last forever, and even be passed down, or used for storage, long after the need for a toy box has passed. Wooden boxes are a much more sound choice compared to plastic for several reasons. The first is that they are often more environmentally friendly, as the process of creating the synthetic plastics, and paints that go on them is really damaging to the environment, and when they’re no longer needed, they aren’t bio-degradable, and will just end up in a dump somewhere. By contrast, many companies who now use wood products are committed to being CO2 friendly, and replant any trees they use, plus it’s natural, and can be recycled when you no longer need it. While a wood toy box can make a lovely heirloom to be passed down through the generations, and is a timeless enough piece of furniture to remain in the home for storage when a toy box is no longer needed, if you choose not to keep it, you are likely to be able to sell it on for almost the same amount as you paid for it. Natural, solid wood products don’t tend to lose their monetary value, and can be easily re-sold, while plastic products are brittle, less durable, and will have faded, and potentially broken in certain areas, and even if they haven’t, they won’t have retained their value at all. This brittle nature of plastic toy boxes also contributes to them posing a greater danger to your children than a wooden box, as where they snap can result in sharp edges, that can easily cut and scratch little fingers. Placed next to a radiator, they can melt and warp, and if they’re jumped on or treated roughly, they could just buckle, crack, or fall apart. They’re not as durable, and may need replacing over a couple of years. They also only really fit in with the décor of a child’s room, and couldn’t be used to keep areas like the living room tidy and organized, where a wooden toy box could be very subtle and stylish as a storage facility in family areas in the home.
