Unfortunately we don't carry this item anymore, but check out some other awesome products that your fellow smart masses bought!

For your Happy Family

  • Laundry hamper shaped like a Chinese takeout box
  • Almost 2 ft. tall - we've seen your dirty clothes pile
  • A ThinkGeek creation & exclusive

The Chinese takeout box is pretty much the universal sign for Chinese food in America. And also like most Chinese food in America, its origins have nothing to do with China. It was actually developed in Chicago by inventor Frederick Weeks Wilcox who was looking for a better way to package shucked oysters.

Our favorite Chinese takeout boxes are filled with Chinese food (something spicy, plz), but these days you'll find Chinese takeout boxes filled with anything. Wedding favors. Gifts from people who shop at The Container Store. Your dirty laundry. Wait. What?

You heard us right. When your socks start to smell like Kung Peeyew Chicken, toss them in our Takeout Box Laundry Hamper. Just like the Chinese takeout boxes we're all familiar with, it'll hold your laundry safe and secure until you're ready to do a load. Not a euphemism.
