Summer is apparently here (not today in Manchester it isn’t) and it’s a great time of year to be decorating your children’s bedroom. Arthouse are a leading supplier of home decoration products and I was sent a selection of items from their Imagine Fun 2 range to review.
The first item I received was the Girls Life Magnetic Notice Board. It is a bright and colourful fun board where you can display your photos, notices, reminders, notes or attach important letters etc. for easy retrieval. Measuring 50x50cm it is large enough to display everything you need with ease.
The board is decorated with fruit images, flamingo, ice cream and the text “Life is better fruity” and “Dream Big” so has a great Summer look. It comes with 3 large magnets (cloud, sun and rainbow) and comes with a hanging cord attached (or you could remove the cord and use the holes to either screw to the wall or hang on nails).
This is an excellent notice board that will brighten up a child’s bedroom or even the kitchen. The magnets are quite strong so easily hold a photo, piece of paper etc.
The second item received was the Super Hero Set of 3 Hanging Wooden Plaque. With comic graphics (reminds me of the old Batman TV series) featuring the words Bam! Pow! And Wham! they are great in the bright, bold colours. They measure approx. 25x22cm each and each comes a hanging strap to easily hang on a nail. These would brighten up a room with their fun style.
The third and final item I received was the Circus Fun Lion Cushion. This is a bright, fun double-sided cushion with a lion design that even has moveable flap ears on one side. It measures 40x40cm and is very soft and comfortable. The only issue I have with it is that with messy 4-year-old twins and their mucky hands it is liable to get dirty very quickly and It can only be spot cleaned, it is not machine washable.
All three items I have tried from Arthouse have been well made, great quality and value for money. They will all add that bit of pizazz to any room.
These items are just a small sample from their range and there are other coordinating items that will complement each item so check out www.arthouse.com and see the full range.
