I just finished a new toy box called the Noah Owl Box. Being the Mom-of-the-Year that I am, I quickly realized that my poor first born has gotten left out of the naming of furniture process since I ditched making the Noah Building Blocks table about a year ago. So he’s back and very happy to not be the only one in our circle of friends and family without a toy box named after him. I’m sure there will be A LOT of therapy in Noah’s future. :)
I’m starting to expand the Bertie Box line with a few other animals, since I was getting requests for others. I started with the Owl and tried keep the look of it mod but also a little woodland. So now I’m calling it “woodland mod” until someone tells me how stupid and design-snobby that is. :) The eyes are cut-outs so they act as the handle. For a kid, it means putting both index fingers in and pulling up towards their chest, and then throwing on the ground somewhere. I tested it with random kids and it proved an easy task. I tried to keep the branch more mod in design with sharper, cleaner lines and added the clean-lined leaves to balance the more arts and crafts feel of the owl.FEATURES:
- Made from eco-friendly birch plywood, miller dowels for joint strength, low-voc paint and water-based polyurethane.
- Sits on locking casters.
- Easy lift-off lid reveals ample storage space for kid things…or a little brother or sister to be wheeled around the room sans the lid.
- 17 wide x 18 deep x 15 1/2 high
