We love this toy box! For one thing it adds a wonderful touch of beauty to our playroom. But, more importantly, it has such a large storage space that it accomodates all of my daughter's toys and there is still room for more, which will accumulate eventually, I'm sure. The best feature for me and for my daughter's safety is the hinges. They keep the lid open no matter how far open she pushes it. I'd highly recommend this box to anyone interested. It does come in a lot of pieces, but with patience and care, it's easy to put together. My daughter also loves to point to all the butterflies' happy faces.
