buy one that you like, sand it down and paint it the color you want it to be!

You have a couple options... or at least these are what I'd concider...

#1 Repaint the thomas toy box (even if it's plastic they make new spraypaint for that)

#2 Recover it, if it's wood reapolstering it would be super easy and then you could change it with themes or charactors as he grows, or you could pain it and use a wall paper border

#3 build one to your specifications, and paint, apolster (staple on fabric) or otherwise cover it

#4 in DD's room we dont use a toy box, you could use shelves with baskets for organization, or just shelves or another form of organization...
