Really Useful Boxes
Advantages: Easy to clean and provide excellent protection.
The clue is in the name "Really useful" boxes. These boxes in our house our used to keep the toys tidy, since our daughter insists on making a mess that takes longer to tidy up than solving the mystery of the universe. These boxes keep all the Playmobil neat and tidy so they don't get broken or lost.
The boxes are well made from very thick plastic, and they last ages. The ones i've got we've had for a year and they've been a pleasure to use. They don't dent or crack easily, you can barely damage the plastic by hitting it or smacking it, and dropping them does very little damage at all. The lids are quite strong too and when a lot of weight is on top of them they do flex very slightly but don't crack, cave in or get damaged.
Practicality is the main reason we bought these. They're not heavy so you can move them around easily and stack them on top of one another. They are incredibly handy for moving house or storing things in, especially when space is a concern. I found that storing them in the loft and spare room was the best way to save space but keeping it all together in one box will consolidate lots of loose objects like the Playmobil people.
They're easy to use too, you just need to clip the flaps in place to secure the contents and then you can tip it about, drop it etc and stuff doesn't fall out. They stay secure on there own and don't need any tape to hold them down. They're quite strong and can take a fair few knocks without breaking.
Cleaning isn't too hard, there are a few ridges and bumps here and there but with a bit of dettox you can just wipe round with a jay cloth and use your finger tips to get in all the corners. They don't need more than that really.
Overall these are very handy and easy to use. They're also reasonably priced at around £5 for a 3 litre and £13 for a 35 litre box. You can buy them on Amazon or in home ware stores. I recommend these for children's toys or moving house as they provide excellent protection against fragile things when in transit. Highly recommended.
Summary: They really are "really useful"
