New Ikea Bedroom
The set comes with a bed, a closet, desk and chair, a striped rug (red on the other side), and the cutest dinosaur.
He's a little blurry here, but isn't he adorable?
So the new resident for this room is Kenaz. He is moving up to a big boy room He's so excited. Look at that smile.
He first checks out the new dinosaur.
Then he sits in his new chair.
I asked him to open the closet so we could see inside. It has a metal clothes rod. The hangers are cutouts that came on the box.
Antoinette joins Kenaz and coerces him to take a nap in his new bed. This is the first time she doesn't have to twist his arm, or deal with his crocodile tears.
This bed is pretty special. It expands...
to full Barbie size! Antoinette knows she will be able to use Kenaz's room to accommodate any overnight guests. Hopefully she's not dreaming of a new KidKraft home.
The expanding bed also means older boys can use it.
Here is a picture of the set in the box. I bought two sets. They were $14.99, which is a great price for what you get. Wouldn't it be nice if Mattel could hire Ikea to make their furniture? We would get some great pieces.
Here are a few pictures of the cutouts on the box. I don't normally use the cutouts, but they are worth showing. I'm thinking about painting some of them and using them as background props.
A window and a trunk.
Hangers and a mirror.
The hat boxes are cute. I think I will cut off the white border, color the boxes, and set this along a bedroom wall, or in a closet.
