I am looking for some advise on whether I should or need to put a poly finish on a toy box  
The box has been painted and some stencils put on and is ready but do I do a finish or do I leave it so it can be personalized by the customer. 
as I dont have much experience in this area yet pros and cons on either way  is appreciated
thanks in advance

Personally I've never made a toy box. For my toys I normally use artists' acrylics, (water based, thinned & sprayed) and when FULLY dry, spay about 2 to 3 coats of normal household clear acrylic varnish, thinned enough to spray (or to brush out easily with NO "drag").

I guess if a toy box was really big & heavy (i.e. likely to be pushed about the floor by foot power, etc,) it MAY be necessary to use a 2 part polyurethane (it's a bit harder when dry). But personally I don't like using 2 part poly because of the hassle with mixing (AND the problems with left-overs/not quite enough, AND the smell).

But that's just me.

Since it is going to get some hard use I would use a satin polyurethane.
