When it comes to storing toys, it’s worth thinking outside the (plastic Ikea) box and investing in a chest you’ll want on display, like this Jubilee Trunk from Deluna Kids. It’s a quality old school trunk, papered by hand with a Union Jack, and sturdy enough for shipping as well as storage. Available from the Deluna website or their pop-up shop at Bigoodi, 52 King’s Rd, London SW6.

If you’re really creative, why not have a go at making one yourself? Ok, so you’ll need carpentry skills to make a treasure chest like this one (made by our friend James did for his daughter Tilda Gold), but you could always buy a vintage suitcase or trunk and cover it in wallpaper or wrapping paper. (If you’d like to commission James to make a chest, please email poppy@thesmallfolk.com and I’ll pass on your email.)
