“ Brand: Wilkinson / Type: Box „
I bought two of these from Wilkinsons a few years ago. They are not the same as in the picture instead they are shorter but longer.
They hold 30litres and are slim fitting which means that they can go underneath the bed with ease.
I use these for storing towels under my bed and also use them for storing nappies and wipes underneath the cot too.
They are made from a robust, firm plastic which is clear so you can see inside which is really useful so you don't have to mess around looking inside to see what's in there. I can tell at a glance which coloured towels are in which box.
The lid fits on top making sure that whatever is inside is protected from dust. Sometimes I find it hard to take the lid off as it kind of clicks over the sides and you have to snap them up and prize them off which is sometimes difficult for me to do so now I tend to just rest the lid on top of the box.
It has slight 'feet' which is just a rounded point on each corner which makes it move more smoothly when you put it under the bed.
I find it very practical in deed and does create a solution for storage which is really practical. Whatever is inside is safe as it's robust this also means you can't over fill it else the lid won't go on.
I really rate these for £4 they are good value for money.
If I can manage to write a decent 400 word review about a toothpick then I'm not going to be beaten by these storage boxes. Wilkinson is a home-ware store which covers a large range of goods from shampoo to bleach, baby goods to sweets, stationary, bedding, kitchenware, decorating needs and gifts all at reasonable prices.
I purchased three or four of these storage boxes about three years ago. There was an offer on them which I can't remember exactly but I think they were on offer for £1 each instead of £4.50. It must have been a worthwhile offer as I remember I couldn't get to store to buy any until the following week so I went onto the online wilkinsonplus store and ordered them online. It was easy to do and I ordered them to be delivered to my local store to save postage costs and could also pay by paypal.
The storage box size in the picture is 24 litre but they also do smaller or bigger sizes and nice under bed storage ones too. All are reasonably priced. They are made of clear or rather slightly misted clear plastic which is strong enough to hold quite a bit of weight. how ever after my two darlings decided to jump about on one the other day the edge of the lid broke off leaving a sharp piece of plastic. I was not too bothered as I've been using these well since have had them for various uses. We moved just over a year ago so they proved handy then too. I use one for some paperwork, another in the shed full of junk and another is the special box. The special box is my present box so when I buy any gifts during the year for various people's xmas or birthdays they get put into the box and hidden away again. Oh and I do believe one was used as a baby bath temporarily lol. There you go a total multi purpose box.
The lid slots onto these boxes and kind of snaps on so it can't slip off. Each end of the lid has a handle so you can lift the box with. The handle is part formed from the lid and part from the box itself, this is another reason to make sure it snaps shut as you may go to put it up thinking it is shut and dropping it cause you can't hold the handle properly when not shut.
I feel this is a great product and has versatile uses. A good price to tempt you to buy them but be aware if you go in store as you are bound to pick some other bargain items up too.
