Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Large Basket/Catchall on the market As a professional personal organizer this is the first product I make my clients get no matter what room we are tackling. In the garage it can be used to contain sports equipment (the small mesh holes don't allow hockey and lacrosse sticks to poke through like other baskets), in a child's room it can be used to collect toys, stuffed animals or clothes; and in the living room, it can be used for extra blankets. I have three of these in my own house and LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I got 2 (1 for each kid's room) to use for stuffed animals. You cannot imagine how many will fit in there. Planning on purchasing a couple more to help organize some things in the garage. They are very sturdy and look great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This basket is perfect for corralling all our sports balls and other sports equipment. It's sturdy, and it's so easy to find and get what you are looking for. No more loose balls rolling around my basement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This basket is great for stuffed animals for my daughter's room. We have two and they hold a ton and don't take up a ton of floor space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent storage for child items! Purchased this to store my daughters' stuffed animals. It holds lots of stuffed animals! Since they are visible, they are easily accessible. Our family calls the barrel the "stuffed animal zoo!" The barrell is sturdy and sits nicely in a fairly small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly functional I purchased this to organize balls in the garage. Works great. Easy to see what's in there and kids actually put them back. Bought a 2nd one for my in-laws!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasts forever We've had ours for 20 yrs and they look brand new. Toys and sports equipment in the garage at first, then moved into the closets for the mountains of laundry three kids can produce. Once they left we repurposed for blanket and linen storage. Just generally a great storage item, in fact… think we need a few more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy, very Container-Storey! A simple, clean-lined item that washes easily and is very functional. This basket holds our baseballs, basketballs, soccer balls, and so on. Being able to see these items makes my kids more likely to play with them. A+!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! This basket has so many uses! I purchases several of these for our basement for toy storage. One has large cardboard building blocks in it, while another two hold the large amount of stuffed animals my kids have. You can use these in the garage for balls, sporting equipment, and sand toys. I also have two more being used for rolls of wrapping paper and other gifting supplies. The best part is that it holds things in while still being able to view what you have. And they don't take up much space but they do hold a lot of your stuff! LOVE THESE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Toy Barrel Although more than I hoped to spend, this is really very good quality. Perfect for storage of sports balls, bicycle helmets and even smaller bags of sidewalk chalk in our garage. Just what I wanted.

Can this be used outside for sand toys?

I'm looking for a storage container that we can put sand toys in that my daughter's don't need to remember to cover because it will fill up with rain.
Asked by: Mans287
I'm using it outside for sand toys and balls. It works great, love it. I have it under the overhang of the roof on our deck so it doesn't get wet. Not sure how it would fare out in the elements.
