If there’s one product I’ve been wanting for as long as I’ve had children, it’s a bookshelf by award winning* brand Tidy Books – www.tidy-books.com.au. My kids’ books are difficult to keep tidy and when I put them on normal bookshelves they sit with their spines facing out, making it hard for the kids to decide which book it is that they want to read. Tidy Books bookshelves solve these problems, making them a really excellent choice for parents of book-loving kids.
Built to hold up to 85 books of all shapes and sizes, and to display them with the covers facing out, Tidy Books bookshelves are designed to encourage children to read and engage with their books. They’re sturdy enough to last years, they’re educational – besides holding all your kids’ favourite books, you can choose to add alphabet letters to the fronts of the shelves – and they make a charming decor addition to your child’s bedroom or play area. They can even form the centre-piece of a child-sized library to really encourage reading, with the addition of a couple of beanbags or comfy chairs. All Tidy Books products are finished with a water-based lacquer and come in a choice of colours to tie in with your decor.
Tidy Books now also offer Bunk Bed Buddy shelves, designed to be wall mounted beside a child’s bed to hold all his or her treasures and favourite bedtime books. I know for a fact my boys would absolutely adore having something like this in their room; they always want to keep their action figures, small Lego creations, interesting pebbles and a selection of books beside their beds, and this would be a fantastic way of keeping it all neat and contained. Furthermore, there’s the portable Tidy Books Box with its fun learning clock on the side, which is ideal for keeping in the living room or at a grandparents’ house. Like the larger bookshelves, it displays the covers of books rather than the spines, and it works just as well for magazines, knitting patterns, newspapers and any other reading material you may want to store.
Now is the time to buy a Tidy Books product, as KidStyleFile readers are being offered a 20% discount storewide for the whole of the month of March. The code to enter at checkout is KSFMARCH and it will expire on 31 March 2012.
