Late post her made this one for the grand kids. We’ve kept their toys in an old basket up to now.
Made from mostly poplar and ply. The front has a dry erase board, the back a chalk board, and top is covered in Lego base plates. So far they have spent more time curled up inside it on their way to Narnia! But they love it!

The Lego top is neat. Might become an excuse not to clean up the other toys though.

Would not the Legos snap together and therefore remain in place if the lid is lifted? Sorry, I never had a Lego set.

It’s nice and practical and cuts down on the clutter. You did a fine job on it.

The Legos do snap on and stay pretty good but it can get cluttered and loose ones will fall off. More than anything it is to keep the little foot pricking toys in the same general area rather than all over which has thankfully been working!

What a great toy box, at first glance it looked like a small desk top box. (Pictures are deceiving) but then I compared it to the wall socket … It’s about 40” long, 24” wide and 28 ” deep??
It’s a real beauty and the white board, blackboard and Leggo top is brilliant. Great use of space in a kids world.
