Win a Tidybooks Bookcase 60

We love books in the Mad House and I have blogged before about encouraging reading in boys and so when we were offered the chance to review a Tidybooks bookcase I was intregied to see how it would fit in to our home.


First Impressions:

The Tidybooks bookcase is self assembly, but it is so well designed that even the boys could help.  No small tacks to hammer in the back, everything was fastened with an allen key and it was super fast to put together.  MadDad and Mini managed to do it in about 30 minutes and without the help of little hands I am sure that he could do it a lot faster.  I was also suprised at how tall the bookcase is (it is taller than Mini at 115cm).

We like:

I love the fact that this bookcase is very slim in depth and is designed so children can see the face opf the book rather than the spine.  It holds a reasonable amount of books too and fit’s perfectly on the wall between my boys rooms.

We were’t so keen:

My only dislike is the fact that the forth shelf is too short.  I would have likeed it to have been larger so that I could get a paperback sized book it.  As the boys get older the tend to have less books which fit in to this shelf.


Every house should have a Tidybooks bookcase, it makes books accesable to smaller children and I am a firm believer that if they can see them then children will use them.  Yes at £119.00 it is a little more expensive that I would normally pay, but and this is a big buy, it will last forever and can you put a price on loving books?  Once the boys have outgrown the alphabet on the front of the shelves I can reserve them, so it will last long in to their teenage years and beyond.



Now for the best bit, I am able to give one lucky reader of The House, their own Tidybooks bookcase worth £119.  To be eligable to enter the prize draw, which will take palce on Sunday 31st July 2011.  You need to do the following and leave me a comment confirming that you have.

    We have had one of these for a few years, and it’s been great. I think it will last us a few more years yet. We also have their portable book box. I think it’s especially good for younger children to be able to see the front of books rather than the spines.

  • johanna

    I have liked the page on facebook and left a comment on their wall and have signed up with my email on their website.. would love to win one of their fab bookshelves !

  • sara ollier

    Hi, this looks great! I also think that kids being able to see the front of books makes them so much more exciting and encourages them to want to look,touch and read! I’ve just visited their fb page and liked! The portable book box sounds great too! :o)

  • Taslin

    I would soo love to win one of these. We have books spilling out all over the place. I like Tidy Books on fb, and would like the natural finish with no letters.

  • Cara

    Ooh, fab competition. I’ve liked on FB, and joined the mailing list. Natural finish would be our first choice ;0)

    Well I already follow u and am now following Tidybooks. I also signed up 4 the news letter and was pleasantly surprised with the code idea. Share the code and who ever buys a product gets 15% off the product meaning that’s £16.35 off which is a nice saving (I think that right through I haven’t slept and crap at math, so maybe ignore that lol) Then your awarded a £5 book voucher everytime your code is used… I think that’s awesome. I’ve also liked their facebook page and commented to say I’m from here like all the others lol and pick a colour. It’s my 19th month old who is loving books right now and they seem to be coming out my ears. My other two read but hayley just loves a story. I love these and looked at something like these on eBay but not half as nice. They remind me of school yet better made lol. There fab so that’s for sharing. Ps just save your cybermummy post and tweeted. Your a great blogger and I like how u expressed yourself. At the end of the day we are here to express ourselves and state the facts honestly. You did that so well… I did enjoy biggest part meeting many off u the point I’m in most agreement with was we haven’t all got babies. I do have 3 and youngest 19ms but it’s my older children who get really involved with the blog especially my eldest who has aspergers (hence blog name) it’s very hard finding brands and stuff he will work with and I find I’m asked to review stuff more targeted at young babies, though the children (apart from eldest as yet) have began to review some lovely toys! Well I’m just go on a bit no :-/ soz. Just wanted to say hi, join competition and say about your cybermummy post. Hope u had fun at the O2.

  • Nicki Cawood

    Fantastic comp!
    Already a friend on FB and I have signed up for the newsletter. We are all keen readers, Kieran included and hopefully Taylor will be the same – I love the idea of the books facing outwards rather than viewable only by the spine.
    If I had to choose I’d go for the lowercase in natural finish.

  • Hannah

    I’m already liking Tidy Books and have signed up for their newsletter before, but I have written on their website about what one I’d like. We’d love to win one of these, the storage for my daughter’s books at the moment involves a pile in a storage box. She has so many!

    Hope we win! xx

  • Hannah

    Oh, and I’ve written on their page but just in case, I’d have the pink finish with the lower case letters. It’s gorgeous! x

  • Emily McMillan

    Hello! Thanks so much for running, I’d love one of these we have a lot of books and I would love to be able to display them in a way my little girl can get to them easily herself and choose which one she wants. These are perfect! I’ve liked and commented on facebook saying my favourite is the white finish. xx

  • Heidi

    Fab competition! I love the white one with letters and the children would love it too.
