Quality Children Furniture that will endure for generations
Quality Children Furniture that will endure for generations by: Glenn Mast
Furniture that is made for a child's room doesn't have to be of the knock-down variety that will crack and break the first time your kids decide to host a wrestling match on it. While it is true that kids can be especially hard on furniture, there are some great options out there that are as tough as your kids. If you just want to buy one set of quality furniture and then pass it on to the generations that follow, consider buying quality pieces when you furnish your child's room.
A high quality wooden toy chest is a great investment. You know that your kids are going to climb on, jump off, and jump over the toy box. Why buy a cheap plastic one that will fall apart in just a few months? Go ahead and invest a toy chest that will last. When the first child is done with it, you will be able to repaint it and pass it on to the next. Make sure that the toy chest has well-crafted joints and heavy-duty hinges for the lid. As long as these parts are solid, then there is no reason why you should ever have to buy another toy chest.
Whether you are looking for a place for your child to sit and do homework or a place for a little girl to sit and play dress up, there are some beautifully crafted pieces of children's furniture available. While you may have to take some time to educate your kids about the proper uses for chairs and tables and how to take care of the furniture, these pieces can do quite a bit to enhance the look and ambiance of a child's room. These pieces, like toy chests, can become heirlooms that are passed on from one generation to the next. When well constructed, there is no reason why children's furniture shouldn't last longer than you do. If you question the value of this type of investment, spend some time at an estate auction and see just how much pieces like this sell for once they have been around for a few generations.
Why is a child's rocking chairs so memorable and desired to be kept by millions of adults? Some people keep them as an heirloom to hand down to their kids and grand kids for generations to come.
There has always been something special about sitting on a front porch or inside a living room rocking away the hours with other loved ones. Giving a gift like a child's rocking chair allows people to hand down a family heritage of sentimental feeling.
One of the reasons that these chairs become a part of family culture is what I call the "motion syndrome." We all know that most children love some type of motion. This is why newborn babies fall asleep in the arms of their rocking mother and is also why children of all ages fall fast asleep in a moving vehicle. Being able to relax while rocking back and forth is something we learn from the very first days of our existence. It carries on into our adulthoods and becomes a part of our innate nature within us. I believe that this motion syndrome is what causes us to somehow put a child's rocking chair into the recesses of our minds as an icon of peacefulness.
