Guidecraft Review & Giveaway



When you have children you need good quality toys that you can count on. We love wooden toys in this house and a good place to get those items is Guidecraft.

They were generous enough to send us the 4-in-1 Flipping Floor Easel, the Princess Rocker and the Papgayo Storage Step Up. We are so happy with all of these products

It was VERY easy to assemble. The instructions were very well written out. The only trouble I had was attaching the seat onto the 4 legs. Getting them all lined up and then screwing them together took some maneuvering, but it was still put together in less than 20 minutes!!

 As you can see Avery LOVES this rocker!! She's also having a Princess theme this year for her birthday (3 weeks from today!) And I think this chair is PERFECT for her to open up presents in!! I think it will be adorable for that!

The easel was FAST to put together. It was all together already except for the spool to hold the paper and the board needed to be screwed in. This was together in about 5 minutes and again instructions were VERY easy to read!
I like the cup holders at the bottom for paint cups. I've been putting her crayons in a paper cup and putting it in there. Same with markers. It makes them easily ready for her whenever she wants to color. 

The Papagayo Storage Step Up took a bit longer to put together. The hexagon screwdriver they included got stripped and I had to use my own. If you don't have a set of these screwdrivers, it may be hard for you to get one together. It took about 30 minutes to put together!


Isn't it cute??? Avery uses it in the bathroom for washing her hands. She even uses it in the kitchen for helping mommy cook dinner and desserts. She's so cute with it. I love the storage under the top step. It's great for when you don't have enough space in the room it's in. It's just that little extra oomph in storage! She's also been known to hide her milk cup in there... nuff said right?

These items were packaged very well. Every piece of wood came wrapped in packaging material so it didn't rub or chip off paint. These are all hand painted (as far as I can see) and they are so well done. What I like about that is no two are the same, so it makes for a unique product! The wood is very thick on all these products, and I definitely see them lasting her a LONG time. I can most definitely see the Rocking chair lasting her until she's at least 7 or 8 and ready to give it up. 

Price: The step up is $50. Well worth it. These are hand painted! The Easel is $110 and the Rocking Chair is $110 as well. Well worth the prices, but a little expensive for me. It's worth it, but not for me.. Weird to explain!

Overall: ***** Definitely. The prices are a little steep for me, but again all hand painted and VERY unique! You can't beat it. It's all so durable too!

 *Disclaimer* I received these products directly from the Company for Review. I was not paid to try out these products!*

I saw a table and chair set "Transportation" that will be good to keep here at Grandma's house for the granddaughters. The Easel, Step Stool or Chair will also be very welcome.
