Who would love this: Parents who are looking for adorably-designed, wooden, and durable quality furniture for kids
“Mum! Look at me! I can carry two stools at once!” 😆. We knew Funyards Australia has the most unique collection of handmade-in-Thailand wooden furniture, but this is the first time that we get to review its children’s furniture range. Today, I would love to share about these “Children Wooden Stool - Blue Baby Elephant / Elephant”.
Why I love ❤️ these stools:
(1) Handmade By Local Artisans In Thailand - One thing that immediately sets Funyards Australia’s furniture apart from most other big brands in market: the furniture is thoughtfully designed, meticulously hand-carved by the dedicated local artisans in Northern Thailand (hence, each of them is slightly unique on its own and no two pieces are exactly the same). These step-stools have that lovingly-handmade and rustic feel in them (a special feature not commonly seen in other machine-made, mass-produced items). I was pleasantly surprised to see that chip carving / chiselled art on the seats’ surfaces. The workmanship, combined with the natural grain and texture of the wood, gives the elephants a “3D” look and a detailed roughness on the skin. My girl loves the blue baby-elephant with its sweet yellow butterfly-ribbon knot (oh, how can anyone resist the cuteness?). The boy was drawn to the other elephant with black flapping-ears, and the special shape of the seat (that was carved along the outline of the elephant).
(2) Solid Acacia Wood For Durability - These step-stools (weighs around 2kg each) are crafted from solid and sustainably sourced acacia wood. I love the rounded edges, smooth finishes, the steadiness, and the pop of charming colours (hand-painted using non-toxic paints).
(3) Cute, Short & Functional - The stools are short and cute - with a seating height of only 25 cm. They are perfect for toddlers, and functional as a step stools and adorable little seats for older kids. The seats apparently have also been tested to bear a weight up to 100 kgs (!!!).
(4) No Assembly Required - The BEST thing for me? These seats are delivered ready to use out of the box. They are not flat packed and absolutely no assembly is required.
