Aqua Poppin Box Seat


Product Information

Our Poppin Box Seat is storage disguised as a seat! Beneath its colorful lid is 4,096 cubic-inches of storage space, yet it's strong enough to accommodate up to 275 pounds. And because it collapses flat, it's perfect for portable clutter control and impromptu seating. Plus, like all Poppin products, it adds a pop of color and style to any room. Not intended for use as a step stool.

How do we measure?

  • Constructed of MDF (medium-density fiberboard)
  • Collapses to just 2.5" high
  • Supports up to 275 pounds
  • Cushioned top



  • 16" sq. x 16" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and functional I was pleasantly surprised by how sturdy this cube is. My daughter uses it in her dorm as extra seating, storage, and a step stool for her raised bed. We also used it to transport all of her desk accessories and picture frames when we were moving her in last week. It really is much nicer than I could have ever expected for something so simple.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from broke within a year The lid is constructed with cardboard and mine came kind of flimsy to begin with. The cardboard tore and now the lid sinks into the base when I sit on it. Do not recommend it at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I'm using this to store my LP Albums (records).

It's really better than I had expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color!!! I already have another Poppin in a larger size, that I use for my grand kids toys. I bought this for my office to serve as a seat/file box. The color is beautiful, and it's just the right size for the few items I need close by. Perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little storage boxes I hide all of my junk in it. I purchased 2 of them to serve as storage/ottoman and with a dinner tray placed on top, an eating area. I don’t have the layout to have a traditional living room table so these work great and they fit in with my decor. I can’t comment on it as seating as I don’t use them for that purpose but they serve my needs great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden gem family style. I’ve had soft ottomans made for my kids to walk & play around that I love. I didn’t expect to come across this fun little toy storage seat I’d also really like while entertainingly/dragging my four year old boy w/me through the store; but I did. My son picked out the blue & it blends well in our house. It’s mostly used as toy storage for my 2 & 4 year old, but can double as a seat. For the inexpensive price and clean lines; it works for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little footstool and storage This has been exactly what I wanted. I needed a small-dish footstool when sitting on the sofa, but hated to just get something solid that would simply take up room. This is a great size in our small apartment, and the storage justifies it. It basically makes my sofa into a small sectional. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic storage piece! I bought this storage cube to hold my yarn projects in the TV room. It's roomy enough to hold two or three concurrent projects and keep my yarn skeins from rolling out of reach. I often flip the seat over to hold a second ball of yarn while changing colors. When I'm not crocheting, everything tucks inside and I have a place to put my feet up or an extra seat when needed. I used my loyalty points to purchase this item, as I felt the list price was too much. With the discount applied, I feel I got a fair deal for the functionality and appearance of this product. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, so I cannot comment on durability. Overall, I love how this product serves multiple purposes and contains my clutter. I would definitely buy it again and recommend it to anyone who needs extra storage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for dorm We bought 2 for dorm room storage. They are spacious inside but one of them was missing the inside panel to hold open the container so we had to make a make- shift one. They are sturdy and the material looks like it will hold up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use as a file box I needed a cute way to store my files in a small office that doubled as a den. They come in beautiful colors, don’t take up much space , and collapseable when you need to get them out of the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive and great for storage It's a simple design, a no-brainer to put together in seconds, extra storage, and a nice place to sit down or put my feet on. I am using it in my mud room to throw shoes in, plus I can sit on it to put shoes on or take shoes off. I'm happy with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful dual purpose This box seat fits nicely under my desk. I can fit inside it a stadium desk top file I bought some time ago from this store. It is easy to pull out so I can lift the lid and access my merchant files. I can access my files easier from this position of being able to look down on them. If need be the box can be used as a seat for a visiting lighter weight person.

Would you recommend this as an ottoman for a nursery?

I've been looking for a square storage ottoman for a new nursery in the teal/aqua family and this looks perfect.

so we really can't use this as a chair?

Asked by: tofudrifter
The packaging claims that it supports up to 275 lbs. It feels pretty solid when I sit on it. It's low like a stool, so not chair height.
Answered by: LeiLei
Date published: 2018-07-04

can you step on it to climb onto a dorm room bed, or just for sitting?

Asked by: EAR56
It can definitely hold the weight but the only issue that may occur is that it may tip over. If you are going to step on it definitely be sure to put your weight in the middle to prevent the rocking.

Can wheels be added

would the structure of the box support the addition of four wheels to the bottom for mobility and added height?
Asked by: BHHill
You can probably use the Magic Sliders that you would adhere to the bottom and they allow the piece of furniture to slide across the floor.

how much does the Poppin Box Seat weigh? is it easy to move around?

Asked by: ItsAlwaysSomething99
It's lightweight (less than 5 pounds empty) and very easy to move around although it doesn't have handles so you have to pick it up from the bottom.

Has anyone put shoes in this?

Wondering roughly how many would fit, adult shoes but small-ish sizes, women's 6 and 7. Thanks
Asked by: ContainerStoreAddicted

Interior dimensions?

Interior dimensions please, so I'll know what I can store in the Poppin Box Seat. Will this hold 3-ring binders and/or letter-size file folders?
Asked by: pixie123
Basically the same as outside dimensions, the walls of these boxes are just fabric and a lining so they are thin, but they have a nice substantial feel to them, they are very sturdy. I have used both the small (16"x16"x16") and large (32"x16"x16") for seating. I've got linens and sweaters in them and they hold quite a bit.

How does this collapse back once it is set up?

Asked by: KathleenHS
The removable board on the bottom the help hold the boxes shape has a finger loop to pull it back out and then the box fold up super easily along the original fold lines. It might take a little movement to get the bottom back folded up neatly but folding it back up is not a problem.
