As children, nothing excited us more than measuring our height on a regular basis. This fun yet poignant memory from childhood has been captured beautifully by French designer Sebastian Bergne in his Little Collection Height Gauge Wardrobe. The eco-friendly contemporary furniture collection has a height gauge engraved on the door so that growing kids can measure how tall they are whenever they want. There are also removable hooks which allow children to hang their coats, school bags etc on the inside or on the outside. Apart from these fun details, what also makes this two-tone beechwood wardrobe worthy is the fact that it inculcates a sense of responsibility in kids since it teaches them how to clean up like adults. The The Little Collection Height Gauge Wardrobe can be purchased from here for $403.20.
Getting a child to study is a Herculean task (so I've heard) but maybe with the right source of inspiration it is achievable. The niftily designed P'kolino Klick Children Desk with its funky form factor may just make learning fun and inspire a child to park itself on it rather than in front of the "Idiot Box". The desk measures 17" L x 17" W x 20" H and the padded seat measures 12" H. Ideal for children from ages 3 to 7, the desk also has ample space for storing papers, books and puzzles. More importantly the desk is easy to clean and is pretty low-maintenance. One can order the P'kolino Klick Children Desk for $199 in colors like red, green and orange from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
