Toy Box For My Box Toys

If you want a classy, nice-looking place to store your toys, this is perfect. The design does not stand out as anything but a jewelry box. This does not work with toys that are large or have very porous material, however.
Looks classy / high quality
Great for those who like secrets
Key is easy to bypass if you know the secret
Doesn't work with all toys

extremely useful review
I'm going to start off by saying I am especially thrilled with the Toibocks because the color matches every other piece of wooden furniture in my room. I may be a little biased because of this; my prior storage method was an old purse in the closet, so finding a box that served my purpose AND looked fantastic on my dresser really upped the happiness factor.

I love my toys. I also love collections, so I happen to have quite a few toys. I have several glass ones that I want to keep someplace safe - Icicles #14, Crystal Lover, and Wave Wand. These three fit neatly inside the box without an issue. I put a regular rubber butt plug on top, next to my Feeldoe (violet) and it all rested underneath the top shelf. This was much better for me than the old purse in the closet.

The picture on the product page is an accurate depiction of the color. The wood is smooth and it looks like a very quality piece of work. I did notice, upon closer inspection, a few flaws here and there. None of them detracted from the usability of the box (bocks?), though. There was a little separation of the lining in the top shelf and a small spot on the lid which could have been just a flaw in the wood.

The only complaint I have about this box is the lack of compatibility with my UR3 / cyberskin toys. I think the maroon color of the inside liner would bleed into those kinds of toys because those toys pick up the color of EVERYTHING. The liner is a little fuzzy (which is great for cushioning my glass toys) so I also don't want my porous toys to pick up a lot of unintentional lint.

The secret trick to unlocking the box is safe with me, but just know it's pretty clever. The company includes a registration form that you must fill out and send in to make sure you have a chance to get a replacement key if you lose yours. I took snapshots of my completed registration form with my phone and emailed it in to the customer service email and they accepted it that way. I have to add that their customer service folks are very nice and made sure I was happy with my purchase.
A small note: I may have to get a second box because ... I have too many toys to fit. I wasn't able to fit half my toys inside the hidden part, but that isn't a failing of the box, that's because I am enthusiastic about collecting sex toys.

None were too long to fit, but be sure to match the measurements of your toys with the length of the box before you buy this. The spatial width of this is 11 inches, but there is a half inch border of wood that knocks an inch off. Diagonally you can fit the 11 inches in, but straight across you are limited to 10 and about six inches wide. With the upper shelf inside, the height (depth) is about five inches for the secret compartment.

Another note: If you do happen to lose your key, you can get around the need for a key with a simple household object. This makes the box very unsecure to those with clever children or especially dedicated nosy roommates.

This box seems fairly sturdy, but I can see where you have to be careful with it. The top shelf has two points in the back where it clicks into place and the instructions warn to be delicate with that part. In the week I have had it, I have actually had a bit of trouble on two occasions when it seemed to stick closed. It was easy to resolve, though, with just a small push downward and a gentle lift upward. I think, with gentle treatment, this box will last for a long time. I just have to remember not to be overly aggressive when trying to get my toys out.
Follow-up commentary
I still love this box so much. So much, in fact, that my husband got one for himself because he saw how useful it was. It holds all the things I want to keep from prying eyes and it's held up well to a few accidental rough moments. Nothing has broken, bent, snapped, chipped, or come out of place and I open it up almost daily. I would still give this a 5 rating.

Also the customer service folks are so nice and the company as a whole has not disappointed me in any way. I'm a fan.
