NO preschooler should be given this. There are far better ways to engage your child.
This is pure laziness on the parents side.

This is all well and good in warm climate countries like India (excluding the north of course - Darjeeling gets mighty cold) - however, can you imagine doing this in a long New York winter? Layers upon layers of clothing to remove and no bathroom in sight? Fun.
My neighbor used this method and boasted about her daughter being potty trained at 6 months. At three and a half she is wearing pull ups because "elimination" is the one thing she can control in her little life and her "regression" is simply an act of defiance. The rest of the children in our playgroup are potty 'trained' at this age while her daughter will have an adult size "elimination" at the dining table! Not socially acceptable. My advice is choose your battles carefully.
There are more important issues that parents should concern themselves with.

Chalk and food don't mix. Many schools have removed chalkboards for a real health reason.

I always thought Butler's designs would translate well to floor coverings - but wow - never dreamed they would be that gorgeous! Thanks for posting these.

Is it just me or is Dwell "borrowing" its design concepts from other wonderfully talented fabric/textile designers?
With the exception of the little female figures I feel like I have seen all of the owl/hedgehog/birdie/forest ad nauseam. The color pallets are lovely, but the designs are far from original. At one time I think Dwell was a leader, disappointing to know that they are just following other designers trends and talents.

Fabulous child's room! I absolutely love the colors and the whimsy. What a great mix of old, new, diy and scavenged finds. Lucky baby. What I like most about this room is that it serves the baby and not just the design tastes of the parents, that is after all what it should be about!

Great job, fantastic room that will grow with your lovely daughter- stimulate her creativity.
p.s - Where did you get the garbage can and the cloud shelves - wow!

I have the exact same set up, same expedit and baskets, however, mine are used for books, photo albums etc. A word of caution: the baskets themselves are heavy and filled with toys can be difficult for a child to move. I would fear one toppling a child.

Way too much red. Seriously - that design firm needs to get this off the net - it is not good advertising.

Who wouldn't have fun here?! Design and style have nothing to do with spending money, what a special room.
