We are suckers for great storage solutions, so we are happy to have found a storage system that was customizable both in configuration and in color palette, and made of wood rather than particleboard or plastic.
The Via Toy Box Company has developed a versatile way to create modular storage furntiture. Each Box is a square 15" x 15" x 15" and is handcrafted using 1/2" (12mm) Baltic birch plywood with a non-toxic finish. These are user-assembled, so it is easy to create any form of storage you want. We like that there is the option for a base that lifts the boxes off the ground, that you choose the type of doors you want on each box - square, circle, or triangle cutout, or solid door, and that you also can choose any color or combination of colors. You can add in accessories at any time, like the bookshelf and peg rack, at right. Check out just a few ways in which these can be configured.
Both the stair-step and the flat shelf units shown here are just 2 permutations of the 6-Pack, a 6 box set. Colors are user-chosen from 9 options; Natural, White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, and Lavender. The circle and triangle front doors make stuffed animal storage really easy, since soft toys can often slide off of regular shelves.
The play kitchen is just 2 Via Boxes on a base, with porcelain faucet handles and stove knobs that turn, a backsplash that is painted to look like tile, and lots of storage behind each door. Very simple, and very fun! And when your young chef is no longer entranced by kitchen play, these just revert to a two-box shelf unit, or you can get a few more boxes and reconfigure it completely. Currently, delivery is half off, and there is no sales tax. The Via Toy Box Company is coming out a storage bed soon, and we can't wait to see it.
