If you’re looking for a kids jewelry box for your little girl (or boy), it’s probably because you’re tired of finding plastic necklaces and bracelets scattered all over the floor. Even though it may be kid jewelry, that sh*t is expensive, too! Diamonds (even faux ones) are a girl’s best friend. But they aren’t a mom’s best friend when they’re scattered all over with clutter on the living room floor—or worse, when they’re stepped on with bare feet.
There are only two solutions to your messy—and potentially painful—problem: Stop buying your child necklaces and earrings (and earn yourself the title of worst mom in the world) or give them somewhere to store all their baubles. And by “somewhere,” we mean a little girls/boy’s jewelry box. In other words, specifically one for kids. There are boxes with unicorns, boxes with Disney characters, boxes with princesses, musical jewelry boxes, boxes that lock with a key… and that’s only the beginning. There are also tons of choices when it comes to the inside of your kids jewelry box, like ring rolls, earring holders, and necklace organizers. Basically, a quick search on Amazon shows that the options are seemingly endless (and let’s not forget the gorgeous Pottery Barn kids jewelry boxes that make a sentimental keepsake).
So what are the best jewelry boxes kids will actually love—and more importantly, actually take the time to use? We’ve rounded up some of our favorite picks, from a beautiful ballerina jewelry box to a personalized jewelry box to one they can build themselves.
Did we mention you have to also fill the box? Sorry, Mamas.
Best Little Girls Jewelry Boxes
For the girls who believe there’s no such thing as too much jewelry (and let’s be honest, they’re right), this is the ultimate box. It has three large compartments with divided slots galore, a ring roll, a watch holder, and removable pillows. And since it comes in chic solid colors (with no childish princesses or unicorns), it’s a great jewelry box for teenage girl family members or friends who are looking for something a little more grown-up. Warning: Your kid will love that this jewelry box has a lock and key (very middle school diary vibes) but be prepared to spend hours searching for said key when they inevitably lose it. Le sigh.
So your daughter wants a purse and a jewelry box? Kill two birds with one stone (or rather two gifts with one click) with this uniquely-shaped box, which looks like a tiny purse when it’s all closed up. But don’t be fooled by its miniature size—after all, good things come in small packages, right? It has tons of tiny compartments for organizing jewelry along with ring holders, two pull-out drawers, a mirror, and a latching clasp to keep it all together. Plus, reviewers rave that the jewelry box is compact and lightweight, making it ideal for young kids who love toting all of their trinkets and baubles around with them.
Rainbows, unicorns, and stars – oh my! This adorable turquoise jewlery box features a mirror, two compartments, and a snap closure. It also happens to be 50% percent off at Claire’s!
This two-layer jewelry box is for the serious jewelry collector. Maybe your kid has a LOT of necklaces and bracelets they need to organize and keep safe. This 12 x 4 x 12-inch box is made from soft lint, and comes in three other colors.
Another keepsake jewelry box option is this personalized Pottery Barn pick. Emblazoned with your kiddo’s name, these boxes come complete with a vintage-looking lock and tasseled key, ensuring nosy siblings can’t sneak peek. The small, medium, and large boxes contain a blonde or brunette fairy ballerina, or you can pick the dresser-style box, with ample storage and clear knobs, if your child has a truly impressive collection. Prices range from $39-99 and this style is also available in pink.

Best Musical Jewelry Boxes
The only thing better than a unicorn jewelry box is a unicorn jewelry box that plays music—which is exactly what this is. The box, which is covered in magical designs and doodles, opens to a small unicorn figurine that twirls to the tune of, well, “The Unicorn.” And it’s as functional as it is fun, too, with a large fabric-lined compartment and two pull-out drawers for bracelets and necklaces plus a ring roll. There’s even a star-shaped mirror for your own little star to admire themselves.
A must-have for mini jewelry fanatics, this sturdy jewelry/music box comes with a twirling ballerina inside — a classic. But the best part? She has a rich brown skin tone, showing there are dancers of all colors. Also included are a rose gold necklace and bracelet set to start (or add) to your little’s bauble collection.
If you’re looking for a personalized jewelry box, look no further than this incredibly popular gem. You can have your child’s name engraved on the outside of the metal box, which features a beautifully sculpted heart pattern. And as pretty as it is on the outside, it’s even prettier on the inside: The jewelry box opens up to the tune of “Fur Elise” as a graceful ballerina twirls around atop the baby pink velvet interior. It’s a little pricey, but undeniably heirloom-worthy.
Best Disney Jewelry Boxes For Kids
The release of Frozen may have been the worst day of your life (you will never get “Let It Go” out of your head) but it was probably the best day for your little one. And while they can’t be Elsa IRL, they can have her jewelry box thanks to this Lego kit. Kids 6 and up will have a blast putting together the Disney-themed box, which has a mirror, lock, drawer, and even a turntable featuring a mini Elsa figurine. And if all of that isn’t enough, the 300-piece kit comes with 2 toy rings locked inside—perfect for your own princess-in-the making.
For all of The Little Mermaid fans will love this 30th Anniversary jewelry box straight from the Disney Princess Store! It plays the song “Part of Your World” and even comes with a pearl ring for your little one to wear. “My child can’t get enough!” said one reviewer. “The super fun jewelry box is filled with excitement! Ariel and friends move, they sing with her real voice and you can turn the sound off if you want to keep the light changing going as well! A beautiful fabulous present for a mermaid fan.”
Your Disney Princess fan will swoon over this gorgeous embellished jewelry box. This one’s better for older kids who will cherish something *extra special* because it’s on the delicate side — it’s handcrafted with embroidery and beading sewn into the velvet fabric. If Frozen isn’t their favorite (yeah, right), there are other Disney princess options that feature Ariel, Cinderella, Mulan, Jasmine, and Belle. These are also a bit smaller and cheaper at $49 each.
