Store Your Pet's Toys In Style With This Beautiful Paw Decor Wooden Toy Box

Updated on January 15, 2014

Being currently owned by four very spoiled dogs (that's how they're supposed to be...), our house gets overrun with dog toys. These dog toys end up in the most incredible places, including, but not limited to, under sofa cushions, inside dog beds, behind doors, etc. And, with one dog (Rita) who is a toy hoarder, the storage places get even more interesting. I once found one of Rita's 'babies' stuffed behind the refrigerator!

So, if you're like me and would like an organized spot to place dog toys when they're not being used, the Paw Decor Wooden Toy Box may just fit the bill. This toy box is made of solid wood (yep, there's some assembly required but even I could do it), and is fairly good size at 13.5" wide by 11.6" deep by 12" high. I actually have two of these boxes, one on each floor of my house.

I had tried open baskets as toy storage in the past but Killian (my Aussie) would just take the dog toys out as fast as I put them in the basket. The Paw Decor Dog Toy Box has a top so it foiled him - but, only for a while. He quickly learned how to lift the lid! Yep, that's life with a thinking dog. So, now, I simply place a book on top of the toy box to keep him out of it!

This storage box for toys can easily double as a dog food or dog treat storage bin also although, with all of my dogs, we go through too much food and treats to fit inside this box. I do toss leashes, flashlights for late night dog walks, dog coats for the littlest dogs, and poop bags right into this pet storage box also.

So, if you or someone you know is a dog lover like I am, this pet storage box might be just the thing needed to keep those toys picked up and doled out as needed.

And, as a bonus, here's a few of my other pet articles you might be interested in:

Here's a few other accompanying items you might like to get for your dog or cat. The first link is Rita's favorite toy - it came with 'babies.' I suppose that she probably had a litter somewhere along the line (she's a rescue from St. Croix) and she loves to stash her babies all over the house.

I make sure to only give Rita one 'baby' at a time. The others get stored in the dog toy box.

This dog toy box can be used to store dog food or treats also.

      The toy box is so cute! My dog, Lucca, has acquired quite a collection of toys over the years and this would be a great tool to keep them organized. Thanks for sharing!
