Find Your Dog Toy Box – The Very Best Indoor and Outdoor Toy Boxes for Dogs

My yard is littered with dog toys. We can’t walk even a few steps without stumbling over a ball or a squeaky thing. Also, my dogs have lost so many toys I’ve lost count.

I can’t be the only dog owner who suffers from LTS (lost toy syndrome). What can we do?

We probably need a dog toy box- and a nice one at that.

What to look for in a dog toy box?

Dog toy boxes come in various shapes and sizes. Ideally we want one that folds for storage, has a pleasant design and is big enough to hold all our dogs’ toys.

Also, a lid would be nice to keep our dogs from snatching the toys and making a big mess!

Finally, if we want an outdoor toy box it needs to be made of durable materials. (If you’re like us and have dogs that are constantly going outside and inside, check out my review of the Endura Flap Petdoor).

Here are the best dog toy boxes.

What are reviewers saying?

This thing is great! We put both cat and dog toys in it. Sometimes the dog gets a little frisky and gets in there to get his toys before we give him to him but that’s okay. Makes the house look nice instead of having toys thrown all over the place. Also, when not in use it can fold down in and slide under the coach. Perfect item for all pets!

This box is perfect to store items. it’s large and can hold a lot of stuff and it’s super cute. I plan to use it as a place to keep the dogs harness, thunder jackets, leashes, extra throw blankets, etc. right now it’s storing random crap from around the living room while we paint (pictures, candles, remotes, mail etc.) and I love that it has a lid flap -it makes for a tidier appearance.

This toy box is super cute, just as pictured. It’s actually even deeper than I thought it would be, which is nice. The only thing I noticed is the edges aren’t really smooth and could use a little sanding. Overall, four stars 🙂

HOWEVER. I’m giving my dog one star. I should have considered the wisdom of buying a wooden toybox for a one year old puppy that adores chewing on sticks. What was I thinking?!? I put out the toybox, put some of her toys in it, and went to yoga. Came back and every corner was shredded. So, now it REALLY needs sanding. If your dog loves to chew sticks, you may want to reconsider this purchase.

Smells great, holds all of my dog’s chew toys, and is heavy enough that the box itself hasn’t become an additional toy. I previously used one of those rectangular, collapsible toy bins, and while it was nice that it was so light, my goober pup was able to move it around so easily that she started tipping the whole thing over and attacking her toys while they were in there. Thus the inner lining got scratched up and the metal/plastic piece that kept the rectangular shape around the top became separated on one side and I didn’t want to risk it poking through the fabric and cutting her face. This cedar box does the trick. She can see all her toys, rummage around for the one she wants, but she leaves the box alone. Win.

What are reviewers saying?

This is a nice canvas dog toy basket. It has a thick canvas exterior and a thin mesh lining inside plus big fat rope handles laced through metal gromets. It’s quite sturdy on the outside. The lining inside doesn’t look as strong but our three pugs are more interested in whats inside and mostly only when we go there to retrieve something.

The design is nice. There is the cylindrical shaped one with the navy blue graphics. It goes nicely with most décor because the canvas is off white rather than stark. It has that established look as though it has been there a while and looks great when full of colorful dog toys.

Our three pugs mostly ignored it once they had sniffed it out to check it was ok. It passed the test for them and also for us. It looks good in most settings: in our study with oak floor and coffee walls, in the kitchen which has white cabinetry and blue and white tile with buttery walls or the living room next to the fireplace which is warm colors. Brick, oak, green, gold, brass and burgundy.

It’s a nice container for what would otherwise be a mess with toys littered all over the house. The toys are often stinky from being chewed and a bit grubby thanks to having been dragged through the garden on occasion. It’s a good size and holds all the toys for our three pugs.

We love this toy basket. I ordered this one because the small rectangular size fit perfectly on our bookshelf.

We have a little puppy that’s currently teething and he has a lot of toys since he’s been going through them quickly. I was worried the small size wouldn’t be able to hold all of his toys, but it’s plenty large enough!

What I like most about this basket is that there are no loose parts and it’s all fabric or rope. So, I don’t have to worry as much about our puppy running off with it and swallowing a small piece of metal or something—other than the fact that his toys are then spilled all over the floor haha.

This basket is also pretty durable, our puppy has swung it around a few times and it’s stood up pretty well to all of his beating. If you have dog toys all over your floor like we did, I’d definitely recommend this storage basket!

What are reviewers saying?

This product is great for all the small/medium sized dog toys that you might have for your new puppy. We bought this knowing that she was going to get a lot of toys from family when they first met her. The material is very strong and the ropes are not super hard so they won’t hurt your puppy. I do recommend making the knots tight once receiving it. Our puppy likes to play with the loose ends and she untied it pretty quickly. Worth the money for sure. I would buy it again if I had a need for 2. I definitely recommend this product.

If you have a bit of self-diagnosed OCD like I do, you’ll probably find that if you have a dog, he or she only makes matters worse at times. What I’m saying is, Champ has a habit of leaving his toys all over the place, and it drives me crazy.

This pet toy storage basket in small is perfect for my Beagle. It’s just the right size to fit all of his toys, allowing him the ability to get what he wants whenever he wants. The paw-print design is very nice as well. Very modern looking. This is a must have for pet owners!

The puppy can’t chew this dog toy box up

Verdict

If you’re looking for an outdoor toy box, your best options are either the Woodlore Cedar Toy Box or the Macklin Basket. Both of these toy boxes will definitely hold up outside.

For an indoor toy box, you can’t go wrong choosing between either DII model or the Feline Ruff dog toy box. My personal choice is the Feline Ruff, only because it has a lid. However, the DII’s are attractive enough that they make great additions to your decor.

Have a great one!
