I'vr just bought our young daughter a toy chest. The lid is quite heavy and the spring mechanism that is supposed to stop it slamming down doesn't feel adequate to me.
I've tried searching for something that will dampen the lid as it closes, but haven't found anything yet. Any ideas?
Thanks folks.

I know it wouldn't shut properly at all, but what about putting a couple of door stoppers on it. You know the kind you get in the child safety boxes, these are handily sized slightly larger than children's fingers but would she remove them herself?
You could try the door dampers that you can use on kitchen doors/drawers. Ikea do them cheap but they're not too clever. B&Q might be better?
Thanks for the replies. I was thinking of some kind of hydraulic type closer - similar to a door closer, but I can't seem to find one.
I think I've found the solution: Here
