You are going to LOVE this for not only disciplining your child ( in a positive way) but its great for your schools' fundraising. You can any prize inside the "toybox" and sell the keys. This is constructed to last for ever!
I won this on a bouncy box giveaway and could not be happier. I nanny for a special needs child that has bi polar and a few other issues. We use this box a little differently, he must earn coins (6 coins earns a prize) bad behavior gets coins taken away and it has been working! Thank you so much!
The only negative is that the token/coin holders don't stay on the chest very well and you can't get a token/coin into a holder without taking the holder off first, which is why I docked one star. Other than that, it's a great product.
I love that I can lock up those "PIA" little LOL dolls and tablets or anything small sized like that, which drive many parents nuts over!! And I also love that I can attach the keys to my bra straps so they can think about it every time they see me!!! Who's "LOL-ing" now brats!!

This a high quality product that my kids and I love!! My 9 year old niece begs to do chores to pick a prize whenever they come over. Haha. Win for me!
I won this box on Amazon giveaway and I was thrilled when I received this. The box is very sturdy, well-made, and can fit many phone, ipad, switch, and remote controls. It's also fun to write things to accomplish or do. My daughter actually enjoys putting her iPad in by herself and putting her finished tasks. I think this is enjoyable for her even though her iPad is being held hostage.
Crowd favorite at home and with friends. Kids love the easy to see visual cues. Lots of family friends s love the idea.
The sturdiest of materials. My grandson thought it was a treasure chest for him. When I explained to him that it was a timeout box he cried and said I colored the chest to say that. Lol.
Was wondering how quickly daughter would take to this. Was surprised by how quickly she really did!
Very nice product. Nice how customizable it is.
Awesome timeout box! Got this for my 5 year old daughter. It's working really well & fun for her too. Teaches us all structure. Thank you!
With 5 kids we are always looking for new ways to manage "screen time" This is the best way we have seen to teach responsibilities using positive and negative reinforcement. The kids gets so excited when they earns rewards and get to unlock the toy box . This is a great tool to aid with discipline and independent behaviors. Do yourself a favor, invest in the You will not be disappointed.
Interesting tool to help teach children consequences of their decisions
My kids were actually excited when they saw this. It is a great visual tool for both positive and negative reinforcement. The only negative comment that I have is that the marker for the "blank" tiles that you can write your own tasks is too easy to wipe off.
Great idea. Very good quality, definitely does not feel "cheap". So far its been effective with my 2 sons. Really cool idea, we're happy. Thanks Timeout Toybox!
Just opened this, looks great, and can't wait to use it! We got it to teach some things, help shape behavior, want to make a game out of it. And limiting video/phone time after the 60 Minutes feature on too much device time. Nice product, and packaging, great product idea! Looks very sturdy and well made. Looks like a lot of care went into it, which we like. More on it later!
Update: the kids loved it! We told them it was a treasure chest (and there are things for them to open inside, including seeing how the keys work). We told them it was good for keeping some of their things in a safe place, charging them, letting them rest when they needed it. They thought that was all cool. Now there will be the game and some behavior shaping when some of their toys need to stay inside until they get their tasks done. Brilliant! Love This product.
This item was a joint purchase with my daughter, so my name won't appear in your list of customers. This toy box is very effective. It gets the point across quickly and meaningfully. We lost the keys recently, though, and would like to purchase another pair. For the grandmother who doesn't know how to use it, scroll down to the description, the video, and instructions on this page. Its all there. PS. The seller/mfr responded to my inquiry and sent a free pair of keys. Many thanks!! Excellent customer service!
Great Product! It sits on shelf by our front door. Cell phone get put in as you walk in the door. If you want phone back we have to cash in a to do tag.
We loved the way this product is teaching positive rewards for positive behavior. If you are tired of negative behavior, and a way to teach lessons that the kids should be learning for real life than this is your product. A fun safe way to teach them how good things come from good behavior. The product is made VERY well! You can NOT open it with out the key! The clear windows let the kids see what they are working towards (goals). It is very adaptable for many different things. They have some that are written on there and then some that you can write on. I was just amazed at to the way this was made in every detail. The quality of workmanship is noticeable all around it. It will be in used for many years to come. I highly recommend this product!
I used Time Out Toybox as a gag over Thanksgiving when my family (all of whom are adults) wouldn't stop texting at the table. They found it so charming that they actually agreed to use it, and we actually had a very pleasant and engaging dinner. By the time dinner was over, all of our phones were fully charged too! 10/10!!!!
