Finished in safe water lacquer which has low VOCs and is virtually odourless. It’s better for the planet, the producers and your family. Read more here How we Manufacture
Our designs are handmade and finished with water lacquer. We could have coated the wood with a thick, solvent based acrylic, but we made an ethical choice. Water lacquer is a safe,eco-friendly finish that shows the natural imperfections and grain patterns in the wood. It means your product will have a natural look in style and finish, with the charm of a handmade product. Read more here How we Manufacture

Copyrighted and trademarked design
The original design was a first, and changed the concept of what a ‘good’ kids bookcase should do.
Will last for up to 10 years.
Fitting your bookcase to the wall
The bookcase is designed to rest on the floor, at about 5cm from the wall. For safety, you will need to screw the top of the bookcase into the wall. The bookcase will lean towards the wall at a slight angle, leaving space for dado rails and skirting boards.
Wear and tear might mean a letter goes missing from your bookcase. If it happens, get in touch and we’ll make sure your bookcase has a complete alphabet once more.
For your child’s safety, we leave the screws uncovered. The bookcase is designed for very small children to use, and a cap or cover on the screws would be a choking hazard.
The heights of the shelves mean small and large books fit neatly.
Small books don’t get lost, and large books have a home on the differently sized shelves. The dimensions of each shelf are:
Top, open shelf: height 31cm
Second shelf down: height 23cm
Third shelf down: height 18cm
Bottom, fourth shelf: height 27cm
Just a reminder, each shelf is 77cm wide and 7cm deep.
Our product story
"Everything I make is designed to be fun and enjoyable for children, to draw them in and foster their sense of independence.
Your first library should have your name on it! After all, it's the beginning of the whole world opening up to you: Where will you go and who will you meet in your first books? I created the personalised Tidy Books bookcase to put kids in charge of their books.
I make sure all my designs are stripped back to keep them looking stylish so they blend easily into a home. It’s about creating a timeless classic that can be passed down through the generations.
My designs give kids the freedom to discover their world by themselves- because kids really do know best."
