GutterBooks

Need a bookshelf for the little kids? This one would be the perfect idea for a lot of reasons. 🙂

Compared to wood shelving, vinyl gutters are safer as they are a softer material – less painful in case the kids trip and hit the shelves! The corners are also protected to get rid of the sharp edges. Plus, they wouldn’t be able to climb these shelves. Gutters can hold the weight of books but not the weight of kids, so you won’t have to worry about the danger of your little ones climbing up and then breaking a bone when you’re not looking!
