Toy Boxes?

Shanna Germain Shanna Germain
I'm not sure I'm in the right place to post this, but I didn't see anything on toy boxes, and I've begun to realize lately that I really, really need to invest in something that will not only keep my toys clean, but will keep them somewhat organized.

So, I was wondering: What's your favorite mid-sized, general toy box?

My ideal toy box would have a way to keep the variety of toys organized somehow (mostly vibes, anal, collars and leashes, floggers, lube...). And here's another thing to consider: I'm spending the year traveling, so it has to be a box that will fit into my suitcase (or will work as a small suitcase of its own).

I'd love to hear your suggestions and thoughts! I'm in desperate need of something... my toys are currently spread all over the house. Which is probably a fine thing, unless the neighbors stop by

Thanks, s.

They don't make a box big enough for our collection! I emptied 4 boxes into a dresser drawer! At firs my wife was aghast - but just being able to look in one place and pick what looks interesting! She doesn't complain any more!

I have things stored in random places in my room at the moment; my armoire, my closet, my umbrella vase. My father, however, has a huge wooden chest that I'd like to take from him soon. It's old and beautiful.

Suggestions: get anything! Don't just get something that labels itself as a toy holder, because those are generally overpriced. Any organization storage container works, like bags, plastic, metal, or wooden boxes, chests, etc.

Honestly, I'd say go look at tool boxes or tackle boxes to see if there's one that suits your needs. Cheaper than most toy specific boxes, and they usually have more compartments. There might be a book bag or laptop bag that could work as well, and there are little lock boxes intended for school supplies that I've seen (usually in the stationary department of somewhere like Target).

Oh, man, these are great ideas! Thanks so much!

Gunsmoke and Sir, I was laughing out loud at both your ways of storing toys. Especially at the umbrella vase idea.

And Kaijah, I like the idea of a tackle or tool box. That makes so much sense, and it would be light enough to travel well.

Thank you!

You're very welcome!

In my umbrella vase, actually, I have some crops and canes. It fits them nicely, though my little sister often comes into my bedroom and picks them up to smack me with them.

There are several options available under toy storage if you search. Both hard sided and soft sided options. My personal favorite so far is the Device Satchel but there are loads of options, many of which will travel well, are more attractive than a tool box and come with a lock for privacy.

Shanna - you're very welcome. We've got so many toys (typical make gadget freak) that we're doing a reality 'off the island' bake-off idea to thin them out. We just tested 5 rabbit style vibes and threw out three of them! Too bad there's not an aftermarket for adult toys!

Enjoy the journey!

The Glis boxes from the children's storage section of Ikea. Seriously.
Here is the photo of my first box (I now have three): link

And here they are on the Ikea website: link

When I'm traveling, I usually pack my toys into one or a few small soft-side cases. Currently, I'm using my Divine Carry-on and a FYN footlong for the larger stuff. I can squish them into whatever spare space I have in my bag, in and around other stuff, where they're protected from being jostled badly during transit. It works well in suitcases, too. ^_^

Oh, goodie! Now I'm spending far too much time drooling over pretty organizing boxes!

On a side note, Gunsmoke, maybe it's time to start your own toy rental company: link

Hehehe.

I don't know, actually. My best guess is that it's a joke, since it's been in beta for a very long time now. But then again, who knows? I'm tempted to sign up, just to see if I get a "you've been punked" style email

I use a caboodles case. It's the Vanity Valet box, and it works quite nicely for my small collection.

We use a vintage Samsonite suitcase. So far we haven't run out of room. It locks and makes a nice decorator piece.

I have the Devine Toychest and the Tunti. Both hold numerous toys, have dividers that can be moved around for customization, and work as carrying cases. The Tunti is a little more heavy duty on the outside, but I'd be a bit leery of letting TSA get a hold of it, and I'd never even think to let TSA touch the Devine Toychest, since it's softer material and they'd almost certainly find a way to scratch it up or even dent it.

They're both too big to fit inside the average suitcase, I'd guess.

I like that the Tunti lights up when you open it, so you can find things without turning on a light, and I also like the plastic divider that keeps layers separated. Both of those features make it easier to find individual toys quickly, while the Devine leans towards having toys stacked so that you need to half empty it to find anything. Standing toys on their ends helps, but some toys are too tall for that, so it's not a perfect solution.

On the other hand, the Devine is more attractive to have sitting out, and it's easier to store lube in it, since the bottles can stand upright, be supported by elastic, and also have a nice easy to wipe out surface to leak all over. The Tunti has faux velvet in the upper section, which lube will stain, while the lower section won't allow it to stand upright.

The other option is to modify a hard-sided toolbox, briefcase, camera case, or suitcase to do the job.

The tackle box idea is great!
