    I've recently wanted a CheckBox in a ToolStrip and while that control doesn't exist in the framework, I did some googling and made my own:
    Imports System.Windows.Forms.Design
    <ToolStripItemDesignerAvailability(ToolStripItemDesignerAvailability.ToolStrip), DebuggerStepThrough()> _
    Public Class ToolStripCheckBox
        Inherits ToolStripControlHost
        Public Sub New()
            MyBase.New(New System.Windows.Forms.CheckBox())
            ToolStripCheckBoxControl.BackColor = Color.Transparent
        End Sub
        Public ReadOnly Property ToolStripCheckBoxControl() As CheckBox
                Return TryCast(Control, CheckBox)
            End Get
        End Property
        Public Property ToolStripCheckBoxEnabled() As Boolean
                Return ToolStripCheckBoxControl.Enabled
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
                ToolStripCheckBoxControl.Enabled = value
            End Set
        End Property
        Public Property Checked() As Boolean
                Return ToolStripCheckBoxControl.Checked
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
                ToolStripCheckBoxControl.Checked = value
            End Set
        End Property
        Protected Overrides Sub OnSubscribeControlEvents(ByVal c As Control)
            AddHandler DirectCast(c, CheckBox).CheckedChanged, AddressOf OnCheckedChanged
        End Sub
        Protected Overrides Sub OnUnsubscribeControlEvents(ByVal c As Control)
            RemoveHandler DirectCast(c, CheckBox).CheckedChanged, AddressOf OnCheckedChanged
        End Sub
        Public Event CheckedChanged As EventHandler
        Private Sub OnCheckedChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
            RaiseEvent CheckedChanged(Me, e)
        End Sub
    End Class
    Just add that code to your project , build it then simply click the AddItem DropDown arrow on a ToolStrip and at the bottom, there it is.

    Here's a screenshot of it being used:

    I've also included a class file as well as an example project for this.
