We've been through a few as mum hides them, and dad reports they are all much of a muchness.

Depending on the way your dads door opens, one of those letter cages would be good as then theres no difficulty picking up at all

There are some quite small ones on Amazon if you were still interested - amazing what you can get on there, it often saves me when I need random stuff for my parents
