A new toy bin...

Mom and dad have been getting tired of all of our toys piled up in the corner so they got a basket to put our toys in.  The only problem is that it is a bit too tall for us to get our toys out easily.

Don't just stand there Brutus, help me figure out how to get our toys out!

No way to get in it from this side.

Hey Brutus, I have an idea!

Ah Ha!  Just tip it over and now we have easy access!

Uh, oh - mom doesn't look too happy about this.

Oh, well.  Back to digging out my favorite stuffy :)

Mom and dad seem to think it looks better standing upright.  We disagree since we need to have access to our stuffies at a moments notice!  Still trying to figure out how to get in the closet to get at the stash of stuffies that mom & dad have hidden in there.  Something about rotating stuffies - we think we should be able to have all of our stuffies available all the time!  One of these days we will figure out how to release those stuffies being held captive.


  1. Mom asked if you were lucky enough to have a Longaberger toy basket. You sure outstmarted your mom!


  2. Yoda & Brutus-

    Nice basket! Maybe you should curl up inside it and nap, that`s what I would do.


  3. Hi Yoda & Brutus! You guys are way too smart for your mom. A toy basket must allow easy access to stuffies or else.

    I agree that the basket looks better on it's side. As a matter of fact, I thought it was suppose to be that way. I guess it's just a pug thing!

  4. Hello!
    I think this entire containment of toys is a great big conspiracy. I think the stuffies must be freed! My Mommy and Daddy always place our toys in our toy box. Why do they do this? We are just going to remove them again as soon as they leave the room.
    Then they trick us into thinking we got new stuffies too with that entire rotation theory.
    Well, let me tell you ...
    us pugs are on to that!!!!
    My suggestion to you Yoda and Brutus...
    Keep tipping it over - it does look better on its side.
    Your puggie friends,
    Josie, Izzy and Anakin

  5. Cool toybox! I like to play this cool game with mine where I see how many toys I can get out before mom's pretty fun. Hehe! Happy Friday! Love, Arlo

  6. Hmmm...odd box...I agree its better tipped over. A dog must be able to have access to the toys.

  7. Great idea, knock it over and get in.BOL

  8. I have a one that is khloser to the ground -

    It is like a laundry basket/khloset organizer - we got it a Tar-JAY - I khan look in at see all my choices!


  9. I have a similar size basket that holds my toys. I have solved the dilemma in a few ways, so maybe I can help here....
    1)Stand next to the basket, jump straight up in the air, moving just enough to come down IN the basket.
    2) If 1) is too much work, eat the basket, creating a convenient side-access in the process.
    Brutus-to-Brutus, I hope that helps :)

  10. Hi guys! You are too cute trying to figure out how to get the toys out of your new toy bin. You do better than we do - our toy bin is quite small/short but we are both too scared to tip it over! BOL!

  11. Hi Guys,

    What is with these hoomans? They are not happy unless the toys are put away nice and neat. My mom switched my old wooden toy box, that I could jump in and out of, with something that has a lid. Now I have to wait for her to decide I need a toy swap! And yeah, why do they buy us new toys then hide them away? They are so weird I! Well good luck digging out your fav stuffies.


  12. Ya know, I have the same issues with my stuffies you guys! Sure, Gunther and Betty can get into our toy boxes, but it's too tall for me! And some of my favorite stuffies are at the bottom of the box. Maybe you two can come over and tip over my tox box for me? I promise to share my stuffies!


  13. lol!
    i'm tellin ya yoda and brutus
    our parents make things so complicated by cleaning things up. someone needs to tell them that tidiness limits our choices!
    no spring cleaning for them!
    happy happy saturday!

  14. Our mommy has been thinking about getting us a toy bin and is wanting to teach Cody how to put his toys away. I think our toys complement the color of the carpet nicely! We'll have to make sure that they pick a shorter bin than you guys got!

  15. Oooh, smart Puggies! My toy bins are those plastic milk crates. I either grab from the top (it's short enough) or attempt to pull them through the slots (which Mommy finds my attempts pretty funny). Maybe your Mommy could relocate your toy bin next to the couch, so you can jump up and reach in?
