Cute Storage!

I have just a plain bedside table with no storage drawer or anything. Unfortunately, I like to keep a few items within quick and easy reach. I decided to buy the Devine Toys brand storage box. The box is available in a few patterns: red and purple lace, a pink corset-like style, and red crocodile. Since my bedding is red with a kind of lace-like design on it, I decided to go with the red lace box.

The box does not come in any sort of packaging however it does have a hang tag attached to it. I can’t remember what all was on the hang tag, though, since I’ve had this box for at least a year now and have long since discarded it.

The Devine Toy box is a pretty good size. The outside measures 10 x 5 x 5 inches and the inside measures 9 ½ x 4 ½ x 4 ¾ inches. This is big enough to fit small and medium toys easily, however if you are looking to store anything longer than 9 inches or so, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

I like the choice of materials for this box. The sides, bottom, and front are covered in a leather-like material. I’m not sure what material it is exactly, just that it looks similar to leather and feels like vinyl. The back and lid are covered with plush red satin with black lace over top of it. Inside, the entire box is covered in black satin. Attached to one side and the lid is a black ribbon that holds the lid up when the box is opened.

On the front and the front flap for the lid is where the lock is attached. The metal ring on the front is pulled through the hole in the front flap. From there, the lock is placed on and locked. You can then press down the ring to hold the entire thing together securely. The two keys are on a ring together, so you’ll want to make sure they aren’t inside when you lock it.

Both the lock and keys are made of a shiny, sturdy silver metal. Unfortunately the locking mechanisms inside of the lock don’t feel as sturdy and breaking the lock to get at what you have in the box could happen. If you have any concerns about people breaking into the box, you might want to purchase a more sturdy lock from a hardware store. I’ve seen tiny Masterlock brand locks that are about the same size as this lock. The lock measures 1 ½ inches long and each key measures 1 inch long.

I personally have no issues of people coming into my room and checking out my stuff, so I don’t leave it locked. I do leave the lock and keys sitting near it so I can lock it if I need to. As cute as this box is, it’s not very discreet looking, especially if it’s sitting next to your bed. I showed it to a friend who pointed out it looked like a sex toy storage box just because of where I have it sitting. If you want something that looks really discreet, you’ll want something plain that can fit underneath a bed, like a makeup bag or storage tote.

I tend to change up the contents of my box fairly often. I’ll give you a rundown on some combinations of contents that work for me:

Reflections Glee, 10 speed vibrating egg, PicoBong Honi, Groovies Wave, L’Amour Tryst 1, Intimate Organics Foot Foreplay Lotion, Love to Love’s Spank Me Baby powder and Girls Don’t Cry cream, two vibrating c-rings, tingle Gel
EdenFantasys toy and body wipes, Wartenberg Pinwheel, mini nipple suckers

Velvet Touch vibrator, Fun Factory Smart Balls (in packaging), Sensuous Beauty Men’s Pleasure Cream, EdenFantasys Vibrating Bullet, Shunga chocolate body paint, Rocks Off Luv Your Body vibrator (in packaging)
Two leather collars, feather tickler, furry mask, Rouge Latex Whip, Kama Sutra Weekender kit (in packaging), Bedroom Kandi kandi kisses (in packaging)

If you need to wash the interior of the box due to a spill, you’ll want to wipe it gently with a damp cloth. I avoid storing massage oils or silicone lubes inside just because they’re a pain to clean up when they spill. I use a Swiffer duster on the outside to keep it clean. I haven’t noticed dust or cat hair or anything clinging to the lid.

I really like this box. It’s attractive and easily holds everything I want sitting at my bedside, which reduces the amount of clutter on my bedside table. I want to purchase the matching condom cube to hold my condoms as well, since I’m just using a random storage box for those right now. The only downsides I can see to this box is how flimsy the lock mechanism is and that this isn’t very discreet looking when left out. It's also a bit pricey for something I'm just throwing a bunch of other stuff into. 

I give the Devine Toy lace box 5 out of 5 stars.
