When you think of making a toy box for your baby yourself, you need to consider many things to get a perfect baby toy box. You can find a variety of toy boxes online and physical stores, and you can see that all of them have different bases used for them. One thing that you notice in all of these toy boxes is their strength and hardness. Whether it is made plastic toy box or a wooden one, they are not easily breakable and bear enough weight.


If you plan to make a wooden baby toy box, you must look for the best quality of wood. And when I say the quality of wood, it does not mean a soft, delicate wood will be of better quality. 


Pinewood is one of the softest wood that is not suitable for baby toy boxes. It gets scratches and dents easily, so it must not be a choice for you. Instead, hardwood should choose a toy box that could handle the stress and does not get easily damaged.

Oak and birch could be one of the woods that will stay longer for a long time. 

Step Wise Step Guide To Make A Toy Box For Your Baby


First glance at the baby toy box made you think it is pretty easy to make and does not involve any rocket. It isn't so easy, and you need to consider a few things and follow the proper instructions to make a  perfect toy box for your baby.


Before you dive into its construction, make sure you have selected the right type of wood straight and without any visual flaws. 


Firstly, make the frame of the toy box with the woods while considering the exact measurement and size you want of your toy box. 


Now build the faces of the toy box by fitting the slats vertically or horizontally.


After making the faces, add the slats to the bottom of the toy box, and to make it stronger, fix it with glue and screws so that it stays for a longer time.


The last step is the construction of the lid. You can make the lid as simple as the shape of the box, or you can also add some creativity to it.


Lastly, now fix the wheels to the box so that you can easily move it from one place to another without putting extra effort into it. 


Once you are done with the construction part, give it a final touch and ensure that all the screws and glue are in their place. You can also decorate it according to the room theme or paint some cartoon character that your child loves the most. 



Your baby’s toy box is something that keeps their room organized and saves a lot of your time in cleaning the mess. The toy box must be minimalistic, but it should be spacious enough to carry most of its toys. You can also use these toy boxes for decorative purposes in your toddler’s room.
