Reading books is one of Riley's favorite pastimes and definitely one her father and I love to encourage. Now that she's 3 years old, her books and magazines collection has grown considerably and I'm always battling to keep her reading selections out where she can easily access them, instead of buried amidst her toys.
Thankfully, a company called Tidy Books has come up with several wonderful and beautiful book storage solutions to help every parent promote ORGANIZED reading! I was fortunate to receive the Tidy Books Box in Natural to help with Riley's expanding magazine accumulation. Keep reading to learn more!
The Tidy Books Box allows kids to easily see and choose their own books and also encourages tidying up at the same time. This practical and stylish design will look great anywhere in the house, and help you keep books right at the heart of your family’s home. It will be useful in older children’s bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens and the play clock is also a fun addition which can be used to encourage children to tell the time.
The Tidy Books Box is designed to hold up to 40 books of all shapes and sizes and has an assembled size of 34 cm (H) x 54 cm (W) x 28 cm (D). Assembly of this item was fairly easy and straightforward and all pieces appeared very durable and of the highest quality. The Tidy Books Box can be carried around for convenience, though I wouldn't recommend doing it often, for the weight of the premium wood planks plus added reading material can make this box rather heavy.
I love how the Tidy Books Box is geared for younger children thanks to the addition of the analog clock face, but because this clock face can easily be removed, the Tidy Books Box can be used for teens, tweens and adults too. Personally, I would have loved to have one of these portable bookcases with me in college. It would have been a great studying and organizational tool, for all of my notebooks, folders and textbooks could have been stored in one convenient place.
Since we've had the Tidy Books Box in our living room with all of Riley's magazines displayed neatly inside, I've noticed her flocking to her magazine collection much more. She also has taken a greater interest in learning how to tell time and asks me frequently what time it is. Her answer is that it is always "12 o'clock"! :silly: If you have a child (of any age) who loves to read, I highly recommend the Tidy Books Box for your home too! Give the gift of reading this holiday season and enjoy books at the heart of your home!
Disclosure: I received the Tidy Books Box in Natural from Tidy Books in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
