extremely useful review
Creme de le creme of toy storage, this beautiful mahogany wood box is a luxury. The toibocks is lined in red velvet that brings outs a reddish tint in the wood outside. Measuring at 11 inches across, 5 inches high and 7 inches deep, this is no small box. I was at first worried that my very long rabbit toy wouldn't make the cut to be stored in this beautiful box, but it went in perfectly. I currently have 5 toys in it (Mini pearlessence, The NaughtiBod, G-Spot 2 Tone, Crotch Massager, and Teagan's Magic Wand) that take up about half of the available space. I can add a few more in and will probably have a hierarchy system in place in no time.

The whole feel of this storage container screams eye candy. The supple curve on the bottom, its elegant crown molding lid. If this is anywhere near me, I have the hardest time not staring. (I had to hide it for it was ruining my concentration of this review)

Once the lid is opened, there is a pull out tray that is divided into three parts. The locking mechanism is to keep the tray from coming out and revealing what is underneath. If security is important for you, then having things like jewelry would be good to place here. Otherwise, small toys, like clitoral stimulators or condoms, could easily fit here. I have some batteries that are needed for the toys under the lid stored here for easy access.

The amount of space available is really nice. However, the amount of space it takes up, whether you have it on your nightstand or your dresser, etc, is a sacrifice. Its tall enough to easily block things out of view if it is placed in front of things, deep enough to make is awkward to stack up high on books. A big deciding factor on whether to buy this or not should be if you have a place to put it. The toibocks demands attention and desires looks, stashing it away in the closet feels like a crime.

The locking feature is mind boggling, and if this is the only reason you want it, then I say get it. Because that alone is worth it. Even if you decide to hide it away and make sure you are extra safe with your toys, this box allows for high security. You no longer need to change location of your toys bi-weekly to prevent wandering roommates and random guests from finding them. You no longer have wonder if you locked your closet door so your children wouldn't find them. No longer bound to the secrecy that our toys demand from us. Toibocks gives us freedom. Not only that, but power. The power to show this magnificent jewelry box to all who come and prevent them from ever knowing what is truly inside.

The toibocks came in a very large box with a white background and the toibocks picture featured all over it. The simplicity of the box carries over to the instructions that come with it(see experience for more on the instructions). There is a product registration sheet that must be filled in and mailed to toibocks. (At the time of this review, the website for registration was not operational) This is very important and the instructions on the slip goes on to explain more, but be prepared to fill it out if you receive this product as it could be important. Also inside the box are four rubber "feet" that can be attached to the bottom if wanted. They are mainly to prevent if from scratching up any surface that you choose to place it on. I find it is really helpful to make sure I don't push it off my dresser.

I would recommend a wood cleaner as far as cleaning goes. I made the mistake of touching it with somewhat greasy hands and my finger prints shine mockingly at me. Other than that or possibly dusting it every once and a while, cleaning isn't really a problem for it. Although, making sure toys put inside aren't dripping wet and that they are clean should make it to the top of your priority list to ensure no damage is done.
I live somewhat on campus right now. Technically, I live in a dorm but it is off campus so my mail is still delivered to the heart of campus. Receiving this giant box was overwhelming. Mostly do to the fact that my book bag was heavy and I still had places to go before I could go back to my room. I walked about 2 miles carrying this box around. Once I finally opened the box, I was so excited, but I had problems understanding the directions. To open the toibocks you have to do x,y and z. However, I knew x and I knew y, but z seemed troubling. I don't want to say exactly what the problem was to keep the secret of the box intact. As a result, this was a frustrating experience for me. My advice to any future buyers is to think outside the front of the box, not the lid.

    Intriguing! But I think these toy hiding boxes are unnecessary. Seems like for less money you can just get a locking suitcase or whatever and hide a lot more toys. Or maybe I'm just missing something...
