Toy box and book holder

hi all...i am looking for a affortable toy box that is big enough to hold enough toys. not too big but not to small either. almost a book holder also. she does not have any shelves in her room and her ceiling slants so its hard to put any up and i rent. i was thinking one of those houses that are book selves but i don;t know if they are worth it.

thanks for all your input.

  • These are 60 dollars at with free shipping site to store. You can put books in them. My son had one like this but he had too many books after a while and we had to give it away and get a big bookshelf. Good Luck.

  • honestly, I went to Walmart and bought a large rubber made tot w/ a lid for my kids' toy worked great and they have many sizes at reasonable prices. They also have short bookcases for like $15. I didn't see a need to spend a lot as they are going to out grow needing a toy box and after the toys are gone, the tot can be used for storage.

  • I use a play gate with small and big rubber made containers. We can see everything and clean up is easy.

  • i don't want just a rubber container. i would like one of those like toy chest that are not characters so this way i can put things in it after she outgrows the toys. i saw one but it seems it was rather small from the reviews. i would love to do it myself but i am not sure. i want a white one.
    well she is only 2 so she has a long ways before growing out of her toys. so that is why i wanted to get something neutral this way i can just transition it instead of having a character.

  • Walmart sells fabric boxes. That's what I use for my daughter's toys.
