Pneumatic closer for toy box

I have just finished building my son's new toy box, but am leary of him smashing his fingers on the lid (2'x4'x3/4" birch plywood) so I wanted to install pneumatic closers on each side to "soften the blow." Unfortunately, I am having trouble find ones smaller than the typical screen door closers which are around 17" long.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking something around the size of the closers that are attached to the hood of my car. Maybe even a little smaller.

I'm not positive that they are pneumatic, but has what you need. Made for toy boxes/children.

Here's a site that you can use to find toy box parts in the search box, type in
toy box lid closer this will get you a lots of stuff, but you'll have to go through it to find what you need. Takes a little time but you can get the "hang" of what has something of interest after you use it a bit.
good luck,
