Durable Toddler-Friendly Furniture with Style
The challenge of many new parents is to find furniture that is easy to clean and does not have any sharp corners for the toddlers to fall on or overexcited preschoolers to run into. The traditional coffee tables with sharp corners at just the right level have sent many children into the doctor’s office to get stitches on their foreheads. Fortunately Land of Nod has an amazing Round Coffee Storage Play Table.
It’s a coffee table that doubles as a play table. Wait, no, it’s a play table that doubles as a coffee table. Wait, let’s see. It has a contemporary, circular design, ultra large drawers for storage and a solid bentwood construction. Plus, it’s stained in a versatile java shade. So, is it a coffee table or a play table? Who’s to say?
Regardless of what it is I wish I found this design earlier instead of going completely without a coffee table until the kids grew out of that awkward bumping into the furniture stage. Those large drawers are amazing for hiding all the miscellaneous toys and blankets, especially when your house looks like a mess and grandparents are coming over to visit.
A perfect compromise of style, functionality and safety this table would look great in a living room, family room, den or playroom. It will last for years, for parents and children to enjoy together.
Storage and Organization Ideas for Kids Rooms
Keeping your home and kids room free from clutter such as kid’s toys and puzzles can be a very challenging proposition. There are many great options to help you with this issue that all parents and teachers must deal with and in the process will help keep your sanity intact.
One way to help children keep organized is Modular Storage and Shelving. The Pkolino Colorful Storage Cubes and Drawers are part of a kid-friendly modular storage and shelving system, so you can configure them to your needs. In true Pkolino spirit they are playful, functional and stylish. The Cubes are stackable so you can configure them in many different ways. The Drawers are free rolling on casters so you may take them to where the toys are, pack, and stow away. Each colorful drawer has plenty of room for whatever you may need to stow away.
A great thing about the Pkolino Colorful Storage Cubes and Drawers is that you can add additional storage bins with lids within them. These beautifully designed colorful stackable storage boxes with lids fit right into Pkolino Modular Storage System Cubes, Art Easels and Desks. You can also stack them anywhere in the house for extra color and storage space for all the kid’s little toys and arts and crafts supplies. They can be easily removed and replaced with another play kit for a simple way to change the activity and to organize your child’s toys. The colorful containers are small enough to fit on most shelves and large enough to hold art supplies, coloring books, blocks or small toys.
If you are looking to maximize space and functionality the Pkolino Colorful Ottoman Storage and Table has it all. The colorful ottoman is smartly designed to be used as a traditional ottoman; put your feet up or take a seat, the soft strong lid is made for it. This lid can also be flipped to reveal the finished wood underside for use as a side table or a toddler play table. In addition, each of these playfully practical ottomans has plenty of storage room for whatever you may need to stow away – toys, games, or arts and crafts supplies. With all these features the most playful, however, may be that they stack to make a colorful tower and to free up floor space for more run-around room.
Besides keeping your home clutter free these storage options are terrific for teaching children about organization and responsibility. Your kids will learn that each storage unit has specific objects that belong inside them and they need to go there each time they are done playing.
