I was absolutely thrilled to be chosen as a Tidy Books Ambassador, we will be reviewing three rather fabulous products over the forthcoming months, our first scheduled review and competition is their innovative and attractive bookcase.
I love how this bookcase has transformed the room of my youngest; it looks lovely with the bookcase bringing a practical but appealing focal point to his bedroom. I feel he can store and get at his books so much more easily than before. Otherwise his books ended up by and large under his bed collecting dust or scattered randomly around the room, now they are proudly on display in his Tidy Books Bookcase.
He knows what he has and he can pick his bedtime story out much more easily than ever before! Come bedtime I enjoy reading him a story but I do not enjoy the twenty minutes he spends debating which one it should be, thankfully the process has been speeded up considerably now he can see everything tidily.
The bookcase itself seems very sturdy I am happy for him to play alone in his bedroom as it is securely screwed into the wall, so no danger of pulling it down on himself along with his mini library of books.
Hubbie built the bookshelf and found it relatively easy, the instructions were comprehensive and it all seemed to slot together okay. I was not sure how I initially felt about it being screwed into the wall, but actually once I got used to the idea I was quite glad as I think it’s much safer for children.
A bookcase like this is a real asset at encouraging reading, the letters on the front help youngsters starting out as they can begin to recognise the alphabet and then you can do a little quiz pointing at different ones and seeing if they answer correctly.
Children will enjoy filling the bookshelf, placing the books so they can see them all so much more simply than before. The different sizes of the shelves mean books can be stored more appropriately than on other bookcases. Little books are no longer lost amongst the bigger books; they can be sat happily on their own shelf. Such a beautiful design really does encourage children to take more of an interest in their books again, we picked the blue version, but depending on your home decoration scheme they have natural, pink and white too.
With a purchase like this its reassuring having a 5 year guarantee, but the item is so strong and of a superior quality I am sure I will not need to take them up on it.
You really would be surprised how many books we have comfortably squeezed onto the bookcase, as storage options go I highly recommend it. The box itself states up to 85 books can be accommodated on there. Youngest was impressed with the scale of it!
