Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
The kids toy boxes are overflowing and it was time to get a new one. I’ve been looking everywhere for one that I thought would go in their den. They have a hodge podge assortment of toy boxes but none of them are sturdy nor are they what I’d consider cute. I happened upon a Happy Farm Toy Box and I asked the company if they would let me review one. The main reasons I wanted to review this particular toy box is because it’s of a farm scene and because I can add other matching pieces to it as I go. AND it’s super sturdy. They could have their own little farm.
Terri had a little lamb…♫ ♭
I’m enclosing a photo of each of the Happy Farm furniture pieces in this post to show you what all you can add to the Happy Farm collection. The kids are into anything to do with a farm or farming, as they should be. We live in Georgia, deep in farming country and are in fact surrounded by farms on all sides; cows and horses and chickens, oh my.
None this cute though….
The toy box required assembly and it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I imagined it to be, when I pulled out all of the pieces. Let me rephrase that. It would have been difficult for me because I’m NOT in the least bit handy :). I broke 3 fingernails pulling the pieces out of the box and that’s when I decided to wait on Andrew to put it together when he had a little time off from work. Sometimes I wish I was more of a handy dandy so I wouldn’t have to rely on him for everything, but, I guess we all have our own talents. I want pink tools because they are cute but I wouldn’t want to ever have to use them :).
The pieces are bright and vivid and they really love the cute animals. You can tell just by looking at each painted image that Teamson has some super talented artists working on their hand painted and hand carved products. The toy box is safe and I think my favorite feature is that the lid don’t slam shut. You have to push it down and the results are no slammed fingers. Also, you can tell in the completed photos that there is a groove under the lid do the kids can’t push the lid down on top of each other. Even my hand fits nicely under the lid.
Above photos show all of the pieces that came in the box. Instructions were included. Below photos are of the toy box after being put together. It is even more adorable than the photos shown on the website.
Please take just a minute to watch this video for more information about Teamson and their fairy tale like designs.
I don’t have any trouble getting the kids to pick up their toys now. Tyler even picked up the girls toys for me this evening just so he could put them in the toy box. If Alyssa hadn’t fallen asleep, she would have fought him over the task. Who knew a toy box could cause such good habits? I hope Tyler’s helpfulness continues lol. Abby gets distracted when I ask her to pick up her toys because she loves the adorable wooden animals and the beads. She’s counted and moved them a dozen times, a dozen different ways. And I have moved the toy box all over the house because it rolls. Woo hoo.
