I love the Tatty Teddy range from Me to You bears and have a number of their bears and blue nose friends as well as some photo frames and ornaments etc.
I always take notice of new items added to the huge range of products, as I sometimes buy them for my daughter who also loves Tatty Teddy and have also bought them for friends and relatives as they make lovely gifts.
All of the items I own have been gifts, bought for me by family and friends. I had never actually purchased anything from the Tatty Teddy range for myself, until I spotted this cute little storage box and decided to treat myself.
Described as a small foldable storage box, I came across it whilst looking for something for my daughter on Amazon and thought it would be lovely to hold a few items I hold dear to my heart inside it, which I currently keep in an old chocolate box. Indeed a few little keepsakes from when my daughter's were born and from their younger years, as well as a couple of things which belonged to my late parents I thought would be nice to store in this pretty box.
A box such as this, was something I intended to buy a long time ago, but I had never got around to it nor had I seen something I liked, up until seeing this box. The old chocolate box had managed just fine to keep my treasured items safe, but I couldn't resist the cute charm of this Tatty Teddy Box and priced at just £3.99 at the time, I ordered one from Amazon.
The storage box is ideal for storing the smaller items in the Nursery, say the manufacturers. Its dimensions when made up are: 23.5 x 16 x 13cm approx and it is easily collapsible when not in use. It features a cute picture of Tiny Tatty Teddy on the lid and is decorated with colourful Me to You polka dots around the sides. There is also a small window on the end of the box so it can be labelled to identify the contents you place inside if you wish.
Just as you would expect, this box comes flat, but making it up is a very easy process which only took a minute and it is just as easy to collapse it again if you need to.
My box looked even better than the photograph I thought, when it arrived. It really is very pretty and also is a sturdy box, much stronger than I expected it to be.
Even though the box is described as being for use in the nursery and indeed it would be a lovely addition to any nursery, I think this box makes a beautiful keepsake box, ideal for storing treasured items and photographs etc.
The box also would make an ideal gift to give to someone who is pregnant, as you could fill it with some baby items, or also a christening gift maybe. I am sure if someone had presented me with a box like this containing a few little surprise items when I was pregnant, I would have been delighted!
I highly recommend this Tatty Teddy foldable storage box. It could have many uses but it makes a lovely keepsake box for me and I am very pleased with my purchase. These boxes are still available to buy from Amazon and are currently priced at £4.97 which I don't think is a bad price at all for such a beautiful box.
An ideal gift.
I make up hampers and found this box in my local pound shop along with Winnie the Pooh and Disney Princess so I bought one for making up a christening hamper and then returned later to buy a couple for my daughters bedroom.
As I said I bought the box from one of our local pound stores hence the price being £1 which is fantastic value in my opinion. The box came in very simply wrapped in plastic wrap and sealed and inside there was the box and a small white sheet of paper showing diagrams for how to put the box together.
The box is very easy to put together you simply fold up the longer lengths of the rectangle first and the pieces have extra bits of cardboard that fold over the ends, you then pull up the smaller sides of rectangle and fold them over, there are 2 little holes on the base which the ends clip into and that's it.
The box is a decent size about the size of an adults trainers box so it does fit a fair bit into it and best of all it can fold flat when you are not using it. The box is quite plain having a white background with lots of little pale dots all over it and then a picture of the blue nosed bear on the top of the box.
The box is very cute and we have a couple of them on the shelves of my youngest wardrobe as I think they are much nicer looking then just having items on the shelves, we keep unopened baby toiletries and packets of wipes in them and they make the room look neater. The boxes are sturdy and they have lasted over a year so far which considering we paid £1 is fantastic. I have seen boxes like this which fasten with studs which I'm sure would last longer than these but the ones we have are still going strong and show no wear and tear so I am happy with these ones.
As my daughter loves Me to You Bears, Tatty Teddy, Blue Nose friends etc, I bought her this off Amazon a while ago without really realising how handy and useful it actually was.
I was generally looking for a few little presents for her birthday and stumbled across this. It is a reasonable size 23.5cm x 16cm x 13cm and when/if not in use it folds totally flat so can be stored away as well. When it is assembled, it is a sturdy box that holds together well and it a handy storage item. My daughter uses it for her eraser collection and it looks quite fancy sitting on her shelf in her bedroom. The sides of the box are quite plain and have little coloured dots on; the top has an adorable picture of Tatty Bear on. There is a little holder on the front so you can insert a label to let you know what is in the box. The only problem with this is, if the shelf is too high when you look at it from the floor you only see the patterned sides of the box with no bear on.
It would be good if there were different pictures on the top of these boxes, the bear in different situations or positions even, my daughter has four of these now, and she doesn't like the fact the same picture is on all of them. She has bought two of these with her pocket money she has saved. They cost around £5 online, unsure on the price in shops though. It assembles easily with the studs and it is simple to collapse as well. Apart from the picture issue, we both give this 10/10.
My daughter has now stopped using these boxes, not because of the boxes themselves having anything wrong with them, but because she has gone off Me to You Bears.
When Jayden was born and came home from hospital I decided that I wanted to purchase some sort of storage box to keep things like all of the cards we received, gift tags and other keep sakes. Because Jayden had a Tiny Tatty Teddy themed room Mum and Dad found and purchased us a Tiny Tatty Teddy storage/ file box, it was ideal for what we were looking for, not too big but big enough to keep all of our bits and pieces in.
The Tiny Tatty Teddy Storage/ File Box is basically a rectangle shaped box, it is plain white with the sides of the box being covered with multi coloured spots, the lid has a large picture of Tiny Tatty Teddy playing with a cart full of toys including colouring books and crayons, a duck and a rabbit, there is a small bow in the top left hand corner and the name Tiny Tatty Teddy written just underneath the picture in grey writing.
In the centre of the box towards the bottom is the Me To You Logo, a blue oval with the name written inside it, the inside of the box is just plain white, on the front of the box is a small yellow, metal holder for a file box label if this is what you are using the box for. The box is made from a really tough cardboard type material, it is extremely strong and can hardly bend at all.
The box actually comes flat packed and clips together with small studs that are coloured yellow to blend in with the whole colour scheme and design of the box. The box is designed to be suitable for both boys and girls.
When I decided to purchase some kind of storage box I didn't want anything too big, but it needed to be big enough to keep things like cards in it, the Tiny Tatty Teddy Storage/ File Box is a standard size for this sort of item, it measures 13 inches in length, 8.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches high, if used as a storage box you can just fit A4 paper in it, however for what we wanted there was plenty of room in the box.
As I have mentioned I didn't actually purchase the Tiny Tatty Teddy Storage/ File Box, however I do know it was purchased online from www.metoyouonline.com, the box cost just £4.00, personally I thought this was an excellent price for this item as you do find that Me To You merchandise can be quite expensive, however I was pleasantly surprised at the price of this item and thought it would be a bit more expensive especially from the Me To You website.
Although this item is designed to be a storage/ file box you could use it for other occasions as well such as a large gift box or even as storage boxes in your child's room, and the cute Tiny Tatty Teddy design will appeal to children, they could even be ideal for school work to help keep your child organised.
The shiny coating on the box which has the design printed on it means that you can wipe the boxes clean, whilst it is not advisable to put too much water on them as the card they are made from will probably go soggy, however a lightly dampened cloth is fine as long as you dry it afterwards, this helps to remove any marks that may get on them or to remove dust.
Overall I have been extremely pleased with my Tiny Tatty Teddy Storage Box, we have used ours as a keepsake box from when Jayden was born and have managed to store a large range of items in it including cards, gift tags, paper that presents were wrapped in, the dummy's he had in hospital and his little name tags too, there really is plenty of room in the box to store a lot of items. The box is very reasonably priced for a Me To You Item and in my opinion it is well worth the money, the box is made from a tough material which has proved to be hardwearing, it is ideal at keeping all those special bits safe inside so that they do not get lost or become damaged.
I love the deign on this box it is extremely cute and will appeal to both children and adults. I would definitely purchase one of these boxes again in the future should I require one and would highly recommend this to anyone.
