It's hard not to notice a Guidecraft product when shopping. They stand out from the rest. When my daughter was a baby I would love to walk around some local baby stores that sold a lot quality items. I always loved the Guidecraft pieces for their beauty and appeal. Guidecraft sells everything from Doll Furniture, Kitchen Helpers, Dramatic Play, Furniture , Art Equipment ,Toys and Manipulatives, and so much more.
I was recently given the opportunity to review one of their toy boxes. There are so many unique toy boxes that it was hard to choose..for me, that is. My daughter, however, saw the pink swam lake ballet toy box and knew that was the one she wanted.



My thoughts:

I was impressed how well the toy box was packaged. When this set came all the way to Hawaii there were no scrapes or damage, just one very tiny scratch. My husband assembled the toy box and noted how the pieces were heavy and sturdy, unlike many toy boxes that we have seen. The directions were moderately easy and in a small amount of time the toy box came to life. It was bigger than I had imagined which made me very happy, since I wanted the space to be able to store more toys.


The safety hinges and cut outs to prevent finger pinching is wonderful. To tell you the truth the pictures on their website don't do the product justice. It is really a stunning piece that is hand painted, and carved. I could not be more pleased with it.
Dimensions:
22.5" h x 30" w x 17.5" lweight: 26lb

*Here are the assembly instructions and video. I encourage you to watch the videos on their products. It's well made and really gives you the information and pictures you will need to make your choice.WIN IT!!

One lucky reader will win this Guidecraft Toy chest!
