does anyone know where I can get one?

Those round squishy ones? Thats what sprung to mind when I read your request. If so, they have them in offer in Asda at the moment. Also stocked in Tescos and B&Q.

our local asda and tesco had them in store recently, not sure if they are actually tubtrugs, but look identical and are doing the job!

really really big ones?

depends what you class as really big smile have had a look at the side of mine, it's a flexitub but doesn't say size. I would class it as large.

I saw some recently- Homebase or B&Q I think.

I remember thinking you could bathe the kids in them, never mind store toys grin

Asda have some for £2 and £3 atm, Homebase sell them as do Tesco. We have quite a few and use them for all sorts.

asda had them on offer yesterday - i did pw over them momentarily.

it's about 34/35cm from floor to top and about 47cm across the top. Yes you could bathe a small child in it!

Just been in Tesco this morning and they have some huge ones for about a £5, they aren't the squashy ones but I find the handles on those break quite easily.
These were more solid plastic, in pink and blue and you could bath a toddler in them I'd say.

Has anyone seen the lids anywhere apart from online?

Hi, I have just found a fantastic website which sells all sizes and colours of trugs: www.rainbowtrugs.com

Wow! Thanks to busymummyof2's tip above about rainbowtrugs.com - I ordered some last week and arrived today. Absolutly brilliant, kids toys all sorted and a new laundry basket and a new recycling tub (think I may have bought more than realy needed but the colours are amazing). Can't say any more, trust me and take a look. smile

Black Friday deals at www.rainbowtrugs.com I can't praise them enough as toy storage especially the big flexi-tub.

I got mine in a garden centre. I believe they're used by green fingered folk too!
