Playful Shelving Doubles as a Kid-Sized Pin Press Toy
Kids can make a big impression in their bedrooms – literally – with PinPres, a combination toy and shelf with wooden rods that slide in and out. Mimicking pin-press needle impression toys, the shelving unit makes it fun and easy for kids to clean up their rooms. Toys can simply be pushed into the surface, and the shelf will adapt to their form.
This fun storage solution is interactive, artistic and addictive. Wouldn’t you, as a parent, be tempted to play with it all the time, pushing new objects in to see what they look like?
Handmade in Spain from locally sourced wood, PinPres is available in natural or colored wood finishes. In addition to the full-sized shelf, which stands 40 inches in height, it comes in a half-sized wall-mounted version.
“Hello, my name is PinPres. I will play with you and help you keep your things tidy. I am lovingly handmade in Spain from the finest locally sourced wood. I come in two sizes, natural wood or color painted: lipstick red, sunny yellow, true blue, passion purple.”
Creative and practical, this shelf by OOO My Design might actually encourage kids to voluntarily keep their toys tidy.
