    OMG! It arrived this morning! It is stunning!!!!!!
    I can’t believe that it was a box inside a box. The fact that you take the time to make a solid wooden create to delivery your toy boxes in just goes to show how good, thoughtful and wonderful you are as a company, in wanting to make sure that no harm comes to your beautiful toy boxes.
    I love it!! Thank you.Your name really does say it all. Be proud!
    Merry Christmas to you Ben and your team

    Morning Ben,

    So so happy with your handywork. Extremely impressive. Photo attached!

    My sister had a party for Jude yesterday full of other new parents. Each and every one of them was astounded by the quality of your work and I was sure to let them know where they could find you on the web etc.

    Great work mate. Superb.

    Hi Ben

    Although this toy box was delivered to my granddaughter a while ago, I hadn’t seen it until recently. I just wanted to thank you as it is everything I hoped it would be. A really lovely item that should last a lifetime and beyond. My granddaughter is still too little to fully appreciate it now but I’m sure she’ll love it as she grows, her parents certainly do.
    Kind regards,

  10. Neil

Finish: Available in 5 standard colours — White, Cream, Pastel Blue, French Grey & Winter Sky Grey.


Our handmade toy boxes are constructed from moisture resistant MDF panels. The colours are sprayed on over several coats and as a result can have small imperfections, especially between panels and between the kick-board and side panels where the paint can shrink. There can be small air bubbles and cracks in the paint. This is the nature of a handmade product and small imperfections are to be expected.

Aftercare: Product maintenance is very important. If you have purchased your personalised toy box with an oak lid we recommend you continue to treat it with Danish oil or similar timber treatment oil to protect the timber and stop it drying out. This will also help to prevent staining, discolouration, cracking and warping.

About Timber: Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity changes in your home and outside, rest assured it won’t change drastically. Small hairline splits may occur as your product ages, this is completely normal and is regarded as part of the timbers natural beauty. As the seasons change you may see some movement in your product, again this is completely normal.

Do not store your product outside, in a garden shed or a garage.

If you need any help or advise on how to maintain your product please contact us or consult your care guide.
