It's that time of year again: back-to-school days. Parents and kids are shopping for school supplies, lunch boxes, and backpacks, and little pre-school tots are excited to join their older siblings on that big first day.
But did you know that school teachers regularly set up their classrooms on their own dime? Read a bit more to find out how you can help.
This is the first in a four part series highlighting the key safety features to look for in a toy box.
Most toy box safety features are aimed at two potential accidents:
- the lid dropping on little fingers or
- a toddler getting inside the box and not being able to get out.
Our first tip is primarily focused on the first case, along with a video demonstration
We were at the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival here in Denver, and was it amazing: paintings, sculpture, furniture, glassware, jewelry—you name it. But we especially loved its recreation station for kids, from toddler age up. Even the wee ones took a turn creating their own large scale paintings.

Mod Mom's Gracie Storage Chest Adds New Meaning to the "Heirloom-Quality" of All Our Toddler FurnitureOn
We're excited to announce our re-launch of the Gracie Storage Chest, designed by mom-of-two, "Mod Mom" Kiersten Hathcock—winner of ABC's Shark Tank. Her inspiration for Gracie was her grandmother's old split-top record player.
Gracie is a classic mid-century modern storage piece meant to look good in any room of the house, long after your kids are grown (that's why we call it a storage box). We think Gracie's timeless style adds new meaning to the heirloom quality of all our American-made kids' furniture.
