The engraved text can be whatever you want, it can consist of names, a date, a special message and you can add kisses, hearts, stars, symbols – whatever you desire. And if you want you toy box finished with a colour, we have just launched our new range of children’s toy boxes which are more affordable, made from moisture resistant MDF and paint finish in either cream or white.

Our wooden toy boxes are available in a choice of colours we have available, however, if you have a particular colour you would like to have your toy box painted in, then please let us know, we will be happy to oblige.

personalised toy boxes for children

These new wooden personalised toy boxes feature the same high quality child safety hinges, same size and shape, just a simpler construction, no dovetails either but still a very elegantly finish toy box and still very beautiful. You can have either an oak or matching paint finished lid.

Stars and hearts are still available as well as front face lettering included in the price. For keeping your child’s bedroom tidy, this stunning toy chest will still be around for years to come.

Stunning Personalised Toy Box

However, if you are not on a budget and want something that is better than anything else you have seen then we still have our solid oak toy box. We created one of these for Prince George for his first Christmas, featuring some very beautiful carving works and our Hold Anywhere Hinges. Unfortunately, we can’t show the toy box to you in this blog but there are some seriously beautiful toy boxes we have made and would like to sure with you. Take a look at these…

The standard toy box dimensions are 45cm x 50cm x 80cm and feature child-friendly soft-close hinges to eliminate the risk of finger injuries, as mentioned in the video above.


These personalised wooden toy boxes truly are something special – all hand-crafted to order by skilled craftsmen, using only the best locally sourced English Oak.

All of these beautiful wooden toy boxes feature stunning dovetail joints and the best safety hinges we can find, together with unlimited personalised engraving.. We set 50 characters for each face of the toy box. The front face is included in the price but you can opt for extra engraving on the top and underneath the lid.

This is a fine example of how good our engraving really is. Also, take a look at the hinges and how well they fit the lid – just perfect! This is, of course, the underside of our oak toy box lid but you can also have carved lettering on the top of the lid, which does look very good indeed.

These letters measure roughly 100mm in height and about 10mm in depth. The lid itself is 20mm thick, so there is still plenty of depth left and this won’t effect the build quality. These truly are very tough personalised toy boxes.

Stars and hearts are very popular with toy box inscriptions, we have also carved other symbols and shapes to order. as these are made to order, there is nothing that we can’t do when in comes to making your toy chest personal and unique to you. If you can think of it – we will do our best to bring it to life. Some customers ever ask us to carve secret messages on less obvious places.

This particular text is actually engraved on the back panel, right at the bottom lefthand side in small lettering. Special is whatever you desire. My particular favourite is ‘TOYS’ carved in big letters on the front and a special message in the lid. Me – I would take advantage of our Hold Anywhere Hinges – they are quite amazing. Our toy chests come with soft close hinges as standard and don’t get em wrong, they are great hinges and will last for years but if you upgrade to our top of the range hinges – you are going to love it!

Basically, your wooden toy box lid works in the same way a laptop computer does. You open the lid and it stays there – no matter where you decide to leave it – it will not move until you decide. You can have it open all the way up or just an inch open – there is will stay – fabulous!!

If you would like us to make you one of our personalised toy boxes for your child, grandchild, nephew or niece, we would love to hear from you. These are not on the shelf, they are made from scratch to order so every single one is brand new – every time! If you are after a really superb high quality personalised wooden toy box, we have just what you are looking for!

One of our new painted wooden toy box colours: The French Grey by Farrow & Ball. I love this colour, I have my wooden windows in my house painted in this paint. It is vintage and classic! This is just one gorgeous example of the kind of wooden toy boxes we make here at Make Me Something Special, created by hand to order, using very high quality, moisture restart MDF and engraved with much care and attention to detail.

As you can see you can add carved motifs like stars, hearts, butterflies and bows. Personally – I like the butterflies best. What do you think?

For a child, these beautiful wooden toy boxes are perfect and charming. The best thing is – you can add further engraved lettering under the lid. This is where you can carve fabulous quotes from nursery rhymes, story books or special family favourite quotes.

We are often asked to engrave Winnie the Pooh quotes by A.A Milne.

There is something you must always remember,

You’re BRAVER than you believe,

STRONGER than you seem,

SMARTER than you think and

LOVED more than you’ll know…

This also includes ‘Christopher Robin to Pooh’ and three falling carved stars as a standard engraving option. A Make Me Something Special personalised wooden toy box is a memorable unique gift that will  be cherished for a lifetime. Often we hear feedback that the customised toy box has become a treasured momento in the family, one that evokes happy images of childhood for both recipient and parents.

This new bespoke wooden toy box for children features the same luxury style qualities as our solid oak toy boxes – same size, same shape, personalised engraving on the front face as standard and comes with our high quality child safety, soft close hinges. These hinges are great. You open the lid, right the way open – and there it stays, until you decide to close it. Then, when you are ready, simply close the lid until it reaches half way and then the soft close mechanism kicks in. The toy box lid will then ever so softly close until it shuts. The rate in which the lid falls is also adjustable by the use of a simple allan key.

The box itself is hand crafted by skilled cabinetmakers from thick, high quality MDF and comes in either a white or cream painted finish. Further colours will be available in the near future, however, if you would like one of these personalised toy boxes finished in a particular colour, then feel free to contact us – I’m sure we can work something out just for you! These high quality hand crafted wooden chests also come with your choice of either MDF/matching painted finish lid or a natural oak lid, giving your toy box a nice contrast.

Personalised Toy Boxes from

As with our engraved solid oak toy boxes, the front face can be personalised with your choice of words or lettering and is included in the price. This is ideal for adding children’s names, a birthday date, a special message, or something classic like ‘TOYS’ – whatever you like. You can even frame the lettering with stars, hearts or other symbols to make your child’s personalised toy box that little bit more special. The lettering, as always, is deeply carved and define and makes a wonderful finishing touch to the toy box.

Personalised Toy Boxes from

This is something that makes our bespoke toy boxes stand out from the rest of the crowd. The quality of our engraving is unmatched, every letter is visible no matter which angle you are looking from, making it a real feature instead of just an after thought. We are master engravers and know for sure, if you are looking for a toy box with personalised lettering, ours will excel your expectations.

Here at Make Me Something Special, we really do make the most fabulous toy boxes! We have created a more affordable alternative to our personalised solid oak toy chest but still captures all of the quality aspects – good traditional construction, beautiful engraving and quality, child safe hard wear.
