Guidecraft Dress-up Storage Solutions

As a child, I enjoyed dressing up for pretend play. I inherited the costumes, and I treasured them as some of my most beloved possessions. I can remember being excited to come home from school where I would find my dolls waiting to have a tea party with me. For me, this type of play was pure magic.

When my daughter was born, I was incredibly excited to share this type of play with her. Whenever I found an interesting dress or costume, I picked it up and added it to her collection of dress-up clothes. Sometimes, I even picked up something for myself so I could join in on the fun. All of these items—her dresses, my dresses, jewelry, fairy wings, feather boas, and more—were stored in a storage container under her bed. The storage container did its job, but there was nothing special or whimsical about it. Plus, the clothes always came out wrinkled and the jewelry tangled.

When I first came across some of Guidecraft’s dress-up storage solutions for children, I was instantly taken back to my childhood, and wished I owned something like their dress-up centers when my daughter was little. Their storage solutions feel like something a movie star would own and easily make dress-up time for kids all the more magical.

The Guidecraft Dress-up Storage Center is just one of their products that helps you keep all of your children’s  pretend play costumes organized. It provides a bar to hang all of your child’s special clothes on and helps avoid wrinkling. The upper storage area is the perfect place for larger accessories while the fabric bins provide a space to organize the smaller items, including jewelry cases and shoes. It even comes with a child-safe mirror for your little one to admire him or herself in. The chocolate version is well suited to a more neutral décor and for those who want to continue to use the item even after their child outgrows the dress-up stage. The white dress-up storage center is perfect if you are trying to complement a princess theme.

The Guidecraft Dress-up Carousel is whimsical enough that it can get any little one excited about dramatic play. In fact, I kind of want one for myself right now. Perfect for smaller spaces, this wooden storage solution spins to allow maximum storage in minimal space. Despite its small footprint, it has everything your little one needs—from jewelry storage, to hanging storage to mirrors. The natural finish easily blends into any bedroom or playroom and is gender neutral, making it perfect for boys or girls. If your little one is a true princess, the pastel version will work well for her.

If you are looking for something that keeps everything clearly visible, yet still organized, the Gudecraft See and Store Dress-up Center is for you. Made from solid wood, this storage center offers open shelving as well as hanging storage to keep all pretend play items organized and accessible. The version in a natural finish is gender neutral and suitable for most décor. The pastel version works well for little girls who simply cannot resist the color pink.

Charm Company Rockers: The Perfect 1st Ride-on Toy for Kids

 Charm Company Rockers

Purchasing toys for children in the earliest stages of toddlerhood can be difficult. They want to do all the big kid things, and they are realizing new abilities each and every day. At the same time, they aren’t quite there yet. As a result, you need to find toys that are specially geared towards them.

The problem with this is that there isn’t much to actually target this age range. There are the toys for younger children that help them master the skills of walking and pushing and then there are the toys for older kids that require a bit more coordination. So, what is an excellent item to bridge this gap?

Charm Company Rockers are the perfect 1st ride-on toy for kids, perfectly bridging the gap between the toys targeting early gross motor skills and those that require a bit more finesse. These plush animal rockers create a safe space for your child to let loose and have fun. Not to mention the skills and physical strength developed by the push and pull of rocking. Most of their adorable, plush rockers are designed for toddlers ages 18 months and up.

Giraffes have been all the rage for the past few years and are a common nursery element. Imagine how excited your little one would be to finish off his or her safari themed nursery with Charm Company’s Gerry Giraffe rocker! The rocker is made with a low center of gravity, making it easy for your toddler to climb in on his or her own while simultaneously making it nearly impossible to tip over. The plush seat is padded and comfortable, minimizing areas for potential injury. The hardwood base and handles give it a craftsman touch and are much more durable than their plastic counterparts.

If a giraffe simply will not suffice for your little princess, then the Mitzi Poodle Rocking Chair might be just the ride-on toy for your home. In a light, pastel pink, this puppy-dog makes for hours of inspired play. As with all Charm Company chair-design rockers, it is made with a high back to keep your little girl safe and secure inside and is situated low to the ground.

No matter what your playroom or nursery theme, there is a Charm Company rocker that will work for your home. Does your little boy love dinosaurs? Then Dewey Rocking Dinosaur is an excellent choice for you. Did you opt for a trendy, nautical theme? Then their unique Sailboat Rocker will complete your design. 

To see these designs and more, take some time and browse the entire Charm Company selection at A Kid Place and make one of these beautiful, cozy, and durable Charm Company rockers a part of your home.
