There’s one thing wrong with those pint-sized kids’ couches that abound in toy shops across the country, and I don’t mean the horrible fabrics they come in. The problem is they’re not very practical when it comes to kids.
Extensive Babyology research has thrown up an incredible list of everyday baby and kid happenings that those over-priced and decidedly daggy foam couches can’t cope with. And here they are, in no particular order: toilet training accidents, sippy cup spills, sticky chocolate teddy bear mitts and bouts of toddler gastro. We can go on but we think you get the picture.
Imagine how much easier life would be with a Kapsule Chair from Offi. Just like the rolltop storage seat, mag table and Ovum bassinet we’ve already shown you, this Offi sibling also looks incredibly good; the modern curves and bright colours make sure of that. And the top pops open to store cars, crayons, books, blocks or whatever else takes your little one’s fancy, so it’s handy as well.
But what really makes this chair a Babyology winner is that it’s made from wipeable, washable, pretty much indestructible polypropylene. Which means it will keep looking good whatever your kids throw at it.
The Kapsule Chair costs US$49 from Modern Tots, who offer international shipping. Be warned though, shipping an item this size is likely to be a little on the pricey side. But we think it’s worth it to reclaim your living room and banish Thomas, Barbie, Bob and that blinged-up family of Disney princesses back to the toy box, where they belong.
