best paint to use for toy


I made a large wooden box that I am making a toy out of. My six year old son is going to play hard with this toy. I want a paint that will last a long time and not chip. I was thinking of a high gloss paint. If that will not work, I guess I can go with latex. Any thoughts?

Your basic laquer spray paint will last longer than any latex.

ok, deal. I do pretty good with spray. I will use play acrylic. I was thinking of four coats with the use of 600 steel wool between coats. If that is not good, please let me know.
