With having baby #3 (who has still not made an appearance) we needed to move the two older kids into the same bedroom. The problem? All of the books, toys and stuffed animals that needed to be occupying the same space. You know how kids are, everything’s important and because of that we just had to have the majority of their “special” things in the room. We have a bunk bed and dresser that take up the majority of the extra space in the room so both my husband and I were perplexed about how to organize everything. It was starting to become one of those problems that I just wanted to hide under the bed. Then a solution presented itself in the form of a mobile double sided bookcase.
ACE Baby Furniture contacted me about reviewing one of their pieces. I was intrigued with the prospect and with the promise of double the storage space without taking up too much floor space. I knew we’d have to give it a try for the kids’ room. ACE is a USA family run business whose focus is on quality, selection and warranty; that looks like efficient packaging (that won’t break the bank), USA-made in California, and working locally rather than outsourcing. The company’s first product was their Mobile Closet, a cute, moveable closet stand. According to ACE’s website the Mobile Closet features are:
- Made of Sturdy and High Quality Melamine Panels
- Wardrobe Drawer with Full Extension Soft Closing Slides
- Angled Shoe Racks on Both Sides
- Easy Gliding Casters for Mobility
- Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.
For the review we chose their Mobile Double Sided Bookcase in the Bear cutout in Cherry. What appealed to me was the fact that the bookcase was double-sided so it has the potential to do toy rotating for me. Toy rotation, in case you haven’t heard of it, is where you take a group of toys and put them out of sight. When your kids seem to be getting tired of the set of toys that are out for them to play with you simply bring the toys that were in hiding out. Voila! It’s like Christmas or a birthday all wrapped up in one! The Mobile Bookcase, with its double-sided feature makes toy rotation easy because it keeps the toys in the room but out of sight.
The assembly was very straight-forward and very easy to do. Both my husband and I were impressed with the quality of the materials. Even though the medium of the bookcase isn’t wood there isn’t a way that you wouldn’t know unless you read the product description. The melamine panels are better than just a laminated particle board; they are high quality. The product is worth its price. I’ve been very pleased with how it looks in the room too and it is definitely durable.
