Macaroni Review

Pottery Barn Kids has been known for its upscale, trendy children's items for some time now.  Whenever a new collection has come out, I have always enjoyed browsing their website or catalog, trying to plan out my children's rooms in my "dream home," before I realistically figure out what the kids actually need.  With a sampling of their new summer collection I received, I can say this season's items are definitely Macaroni Kid Approved!  You can view the entire summer collection here, but here are a few of my favorites!


Lahaina Quilted Bedding (Quilt & Shams) and Seahorse Sheeting Set

With a light, beach-y feel, this bedding set it perfect for any girls summer bedroom.  My 3 year old daughter LOVES climbing into her brilliantly colored bed now!  She gets such a kick out of the seahorses (especially the flowers in their hair!) on the sheets, and really enjoys the feel of the Lahaina quilt.  The entire set not only elevates the look of her entire room, but it is super easy to care for!  The Seahorse Sheeting Set is made of 100% cotton, and is super-soft on her delicate skin.  The patchwork Lahaina Quilt and Shams are pre-washed to ensure extra softness, made of pure cotton percale.  The quilted shams have tie back closures for easy removal.  The entire bedding set is machine wash-able and dry-able, making the occasional accident clean up super-easy on Mom!


Pink Inflatable Beach Ball


My kids both love playing with this Flower beach ball, and cannot wait to spend the summer with it at the pool.  They get a giant kick out of the inflated flower inside the ball!  With a 20" diameter and some really durable plastic, this is sure to keep them entertained for hours this summer.



Anywhere Chair, Oversized Anywhere Chair, and Avery Table and Chairs


Now that these items are in our playroom, I cannot imagine them not being there.  The chairs and table are all small enough to fit them now (at 3 and 5), and still large enough that I can imagine them using them for many, many years to come.  My kids use the Avery Table and Chairs every day to enjoy their snack time, color in their coloring books, or play games at.  They are really easy to wipe clean, and are very durable.  The table measures just under 3" across, and fits comfortably in our modest home.  The design is classic and fits with out kid-room classic decor.  The Anywhere Chair (shown in pink) and Oversized Anywhere Chair (shown in green) are not only an amazing item to have around for summer nights, but are a great staple to have year-round!  The slipcovers zip right off for easy washing, and all of the "innards" of the chair Velcro back into place inside the slipcovers to ensure that they stay together properly.  My kids have used their chairs as forts, castles, trampolines (without permission!), and these chairs have stood up to their rough-and-tumble lifestyles.  We do have a sofa in our playroom, but the Anywhere Chairs are now the go-to spot when they are snuggling up for a movie night.  They are really light-weight as well, which makes moving them into a bed room during story time or into the family room for a game night around the coffee table really convenient.  Replacement slipcovers are available also, to keep up with your changing decor or your child's taste!
