Stunning!!! I’m afraid to use lids on a toy box, I tested some slow close devices but I’m not sure they stand up to a two year old. Glad to see you used lock stops.

Well done. Love the band of curlies, and the box jointed corners.

Is the toy box for grown up toys? If for small children it might need air holes in the back for when they play hide n seek. Very nice box.
