What Is It? This hand-sanded, twice-lacquered toy chest looks like a truck and can be decorated with paint, decals or anything a kid dreams up. It assembles in minutes, primarily with a slot-and-groove technique that’ll make Santa’s elves sigh in relief. The only screws go in the safety hinge that keeps the top from slamming down on tender fingers. The front of the truck can even be used as a seat by little ones weary from cleaning up their rooms.
What We Thought The truck really was easy to assemble, even though the wrong set of instructions was included! Within minutes, ToyDirectory had an attractive new way to store all the samples that arrive for review. Why They’ll Want It Little kids will like having a toy chest they can use as a toy, too — especially if they decorate it themselves. Parents will appreciate the safety lid, the chests’ hassle-free assembly and the inspiration it provides kids to get their junk off the floor! — Alison Marek, 8/6/07
