Front Face: The front face of your toy box comes with your choice of words or lettering. Ideal for children’s names, a date of birth or just simply – ‘TOYS’, whatever you desire. You have up to 50 characters on the front face included in the price.
Lid Engraving: You can add further engraving under or on top of the lid of your toy chest. Ideal for family favourite sayings, special favourite story quotes, special messages for your child or grandchild to always and read and remember. There are several engraving character amounts to choose from all depending on how much lettering you want carved. Please note: You will have to upgrade to the oak lid in order to add the lid engraving.

All oak toy boxes come with our high quality soft-close safety hinges. However, these can be upgraded to our state of the art “Hold anywhere hinges”. These hinges allow your toy box lid to stay put wherever you leave it.
The toy boxes feature beautiful dovetail joints and are finished with Liberon child-safe Superior Danish oil.

As these wooden toy boxes are made completely by hand, they can take 4-6 weeks to complete. Please be aware this can change daily. If you require an item to be made by a specific date please contact us.
All engravings are in capitals. For lower case lettering, this can be requested at time of order. Please add this to the note section at checkout or you can contact us via email or phone. All sizes are approximate.
Though featured in some of the images, ‘superscript’ is no longer available on dates on our toy boxes.
We can custom build an oak toy box to order using your own dimensions. As all of our wooden toy boxes are made from scratch from the ground up, alterations are easy for us.

Our beautiful oak toy box for Emma arrived this afternoon – to say we are pleased with it is an understatement.
On opening up the transit case , which in itself was a piece of engineering, the aroma of oak was delightful, and then – WOW – the box itself!
Emma’s name carved into the front face, the grains, and colours of the wood – stunning. The dovetail joints of the corners, and then the lid with the elegant slow close hinges.
Your craftsmanship is superb ,and my wife and I are thoroughly delighted with what will become a family heirloom for sure. We are pleased to tell you that we are expecting to become grandparents again, so order No.2 will be on its way sometime next year, all being well.
If anybody is considering buying a box from Ben – my advice is to go for it – you will not be disappointed – in fact you’ll be delighted!
Kind regards – Katherine and Steve, Canterbury.
Hello Davina and Ben.
Well, my husband and I finally opened the toy boxes on Saturday night – and they are . . . absolutely perfect.
I can’t tell you how happy I am with the way they have turned out. I almost burst into tears, knowing that our children will take these gorgeous boxes and our love through life with them. Ben, I was a little worried about the size of the names on the front, because we didn’t 3D model it first, but you were right you do know what you are doing and the names are bang on the right size. Thank you so much for you time, love, interest and attention to detail that you have put into these incredible toy boxes.
Basically, I am over the moon. Thank you. Michelle
