I recently spent a few months staying with my father. During this time I had a number of toys I needed to try and review and since I didn’t know how long I was going to be there I had brought quite a few in my Big Foot (reviewed previously). While my father knew enough from having lived with me when I was a teenager (and already had a number of sex toys) that he didn’t go poking around in my room on a regular basis I didn’t want the rare occasion when he did come in to be embarrassing for him or me, though mostly not for him. Enter The Original ToiBocks.
Made of an exceptionally sturdy and gorgeous dark cherry colored wood with a nice soft red velvety interior I was in love the moment I laid eyes on The Original ToiBocks, from now on known as TOT (because that acronym amuses me). There are plenty of jewelry boxes that look nearly identical to TOT, therefore allowing it to blend in to “normal” bedroom or any-other-room decor while having secret agent qualities. It also does a wonderful job of combining the functionality of both toy storage and jewelry box abilities with the privacy of having a secure and locked place to keep toys or other things you wouldn’t want nosy guests, roommates, kids, house sitters, etc. to get into.
TOT has a top shelf for jewelry or whatever else you might like to put in it and a secret hidden bottom compartment. The top shelf is very sturdy and easy to lift out of place even when full of jewelry (what I like to keep in it). There are plenty of jewelry boxes that are designed like this and the ability to lift up the top shelf isn’t too novel but this is the only one I know about that only opens by a fancy super secret hidden key. What is this key and how does it work, you ask? Well, I can’t tell you that. I have been sworn to secrecy, but let me assure you it is well locked and not completely obvious. According to the company only one out of five people can figure it out when given the box without instructions. That number goes down dramatically if the key is not stored with the box. Hell, even with reading the directions I operated it incorrectly at first (whoops). But I’ve already said too much.
TOT can also hold items up to eleven inches if placed diagonally and you can see by the pictures just how many toys it can hold. Obviously it depends on the size of the toys that you are placing inside as well, but for being relatively compact you can fit a lot into it. I like to keep my more expensive or cherished items inside, personally, especially those I don’t use on a daily or semi-daily basis. How you use it may vary wildly from my use since I do have a ridiculous amount of toys.
Because it doesn’t look out of place on a dresser or nightstand it can be easily stored out in the open, unlike many other boxes designed specifically for sex toy storage. I love my Big Foot dearly but it is somewhat conspicuous, though it does also lock. This may not be a problem for you, and with the hefty price tag that TOT has it may be just as worth it to use some other sort of storage, but I would say this is hands down the most gorgeous way to store your toys, not to mention well made, sturdy, secure, and inconspicuous.
Of course, TOT isn’t just for sex toys, it’s a great place for expensive jewelry, important documents, illegal substances, or cash money you don’t want the police to find. Not that you have any of those last two, of course. Just saying. ToiBocks also has a lovely ToiTissue Box that has a hidden slide-out compartment underneath a functional tissue holder, once again combining functionality with privacy.
