This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

A simple cardboard box containing your kid's toys. I know growing up I never had a toy chest of any kind (I sorta just threw them in the closet), and some keep their toys in a box. So here it is, a dirty cardboard box with toys in it. There is also a clean cardboard box recolor included. Textures used on this mesh are from Google Images.

It's wonderful! This is the way how my old toys are packaged now (somewhere in a deep cellar at my parents home). When I was child I didn't need a box because my toys had been scattered in the whole room

Same here, Kiara. I never had a toy chest either. Actually, I was blessed to have toys.
This is so true to life! Thanks so much!

This is just what Brandi Broke's kids need!

I was never bothered about what my toys were stored in when I was a kid. I always figured the toys were more important than the container they were in. And so it was that I used cardboard boxes, too. When they got too beaten and bedraggled to use as containers anymore, I would put my toys in a new box, break down the old one, and use it as a toy for a while. It would be my sled for riding down the grassy hill in the vacant lot across the street.

Good times, good times.

This download reminds me of those good times. Thanks.

I love your idea, Kiara! This will be very realistic for my poor sims. I don't use a bunch of CC, but this will be one thing I will definitely use in my game.

Don't be sad, Teza. The best toy in the world is a cardboard box. Add toys and you've got some really happy kids!

Now this is realistic!! What a great idea...of course my sims will only use the "clean" box. You can be poor but very picky about your "stuff." LOL...thanks for the really cute item! You "rawk" for sure!! :D

Hey, how about a matching pet bed? My cats all love to hang out in their cardboard boxes!! LOL!

Yeah not all kids are blessed to have a toy box, but ANY or ALL of your sims can have them. The stuff about sims not having them is total bull... but cool mesh anyway...

Awesome idea. I still have my toy box and I still never really used it. Our toys were always all over the floor. The biggest shelf in your room is your floor. Lol.
