Review: Minene fabric storage box with lid

We have so much stuff in this house. Living with 4 small children means lots of toys, games, puzzles, teddies and household bits such as bedding and swim kits. Finding good, spacious storage can be really tough, and now we are in our lovely new home, I want it to look good too!

Minene recently sent us their fabric storage box with lid, which is available in 20 different colours – something to suit any room in any home. We went for the yellow clouds design – bright and cheerful but in keeping with our decor.

The box is incredibly easy to assemble. It comes flat packed, and once opened will pop outwards. The base is secured with a zip to keep the shape, and this can simply be unzipped and flattened for storage. Designed as a bedding box, it will slide easily under a standard single or double bed. 

We decided to use the Minene storage box for toys, purely because it is so spacious. Measuring 60x40x25cm, there is plenty of space for loads of toys, even larger ones such as the Fisher Price puppy.

Perfect for keeping in the living room, this is where all the toys get popped at night time, giving us our living room back as a grown up space again. The fact that it has a lid means that everything can be packed away tidily, and I don’t have to spend all evening looking at toys. My one criticism is that the lid is purely material, so it is quite flimsy. It would be great if it had a zip like the box base, or a plastic backing to keep the lid more rigid.

A great height for small people, both Max and Eliza can access the box, even reaching the toys right at the bottom. The children love it, and find it easy to tidy their toys away at the end of the day, as there is so much space for everything. I love it because it holds so much, looks so pretty and has a lid which keeps toys out of sight when not in use.

    Looks great! We don’t have much space so Mia’s toys need to be put away constantly each day so storage like this would be lovely to put her things in. They look a good size and the fact they look pretty is a bonus! 🙂

    Looks great. You can never have too much storage with children as we’ve discovered and boxes that fit underneath beds are a huge bonus for keeping spaces clear. #triedtested

    Mrs OMG would love a few of these. She hates the clutter of toys in the corner of the sitting room.

    Thanks for hosting #triedtested

    I love these storage boxes. They are so easy on the eye compared to alot of the bigger bulkier plastic ones that I use although these are not in my front room! #triedandtested

    This sure sounds great. We have accessible storage boxes too so our daughter can be quite independent. #triedandtested

    These look brilliant, we have just changed all of the children’s bedrooms around, meaning the older boys now have single beds instead of bunkbeds, I have been looking for some storage options, these look perfect.

    I love the colour, I have a lamp which would match this perfectly! I much prefer toy storage like this rather than plastic boxes, they look much nicer in amongst your home decor and can be tided away without so much as a sniff of toys showing! #triedtested

    This looks great, we have lots of fabric storage boxes and they are so hand (and it’s great how quickly things can be tidied up in to them!) I love the pattern on this one
