Big Book Little Book Cardboard Box Review

A week or so ago we were offered a Big Book Little Book Cardboard Box being a clubber in the 1990’s I loved the pun. I also had a look at the website and thought that it was one of the best ideas I have seen in ages. The reason being that I spend a large chunk of my evening tidying up books that have been randomly thrown from their wicker basket to the floor in a toddler frenzied rampage of picture led decision making. But, no longer, the Big Book Little Book Cardboard Box has actually solved this problem.

You see, I have to admit that our books look nothing like the ones in the picture above, instead they look like this picture. But hey, they are not on the floor in a massive jumble, so I don’t care. The toddlers can actually find what they want with ease and our book area definitely looks a lot less untidy.

The only issue is with the fact that it does still essentially look like a cardboard box, not the best look for a living room. My OCD- ness about mess/ living room style is forcing me to go out and buy some new fabric to cover it, so it blends in a little more. But, frankly that’s not an issue when you are paying £8 for something that will improve your overall life and that of the kids. Who would have thought such a simple, obvious idea as a cardboard box could change your quality of life. But it does. They come fully constructed and in my experience very promptly. You can buy one for yourself here.

    I need more book recommendations. What about posting about your kids' favourites?

    Great idea D. I'll write that blog on their favourite books ASAP. Needless to say any Miffy book seems to go down well…

    This looks brilliant. I've wanted one of those forward-facing bookcases for ages, but they all seem o be hideously expensive. One of these for each of the main rooms would be much better, and we can swap round the books now and then for variety. I think I will definitely invest in some.
