Building Blocks Box

"It's a toy box! Take it apart... It's building blocks! Put it together... It's a puzzle!" - Mike

As far as Mike was concerned, regular toy boxes just weren't fun enough. And let's face it, building blocks are a mess if you don't have a place to store them. Mike solved both problems with this design.

These boxes consist of blocks made from reclaimed pine, a solid base, and a number of dowels. Place the dowels into the base, line up the dowels with the pre-drilled holes, and slide the block down. Mike's innovative design means that when all the blocks have been slid into place, they form a box strong enough to fill with toys. And if you don't need a toy box anymore (they grow up so fast!) all of the blocks and dowels fit inside the base. So you can easily store everything in the basement and save it for the grand kids.

These toy boxes come in two sizes. The first is made of 54 blocks ranging in size from 1"x 2"x 2" to 1"x 2"x 10", and the finished toy box measures 16"x20"x13". The second is made from 54 blocks ranging in size from 1.5"x 3"x 3" to 1 .5"x 3"x 12", and the finished toy box measures 18"x 30"x 17.5". This larger box also includes a "window" that opens on each end. Both boxes are finished with a child-safe, non-toxic shellac. This can also be made to suit your size needs.
