painting particle board/laminate

I want to paint my daughters toy box. The problem is its that white particle board/laminate type. Can you paint this if so, how?

I just read about this in a painting book. It says to sand the laminate and to use a melamine primer. If melamine is unavailable, use a super adhesive primer. Then, you can paint. I tried the super adhesive primer with latex paint over top, since I didn't have melamine, and even though I only did a small test section, it seems to have worked quite well. There are, however, some bristle marks in the brushed on paint.
