Product of the week: Oeuf Mini Library
While expecting my second child we moved into a new house with an actual playroom and I set to work right away figuring out how to organize all our toys, books and other play items and decided to purchase a storage system from a well known conventional retailer. I remember my excitement when the boxes started arriving and put my husband to work assembling our new storage system. However, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment and concern when I opened the boxes and was met with an intense toxic smell. Initially, I assumed my reaction was prompted by an over-sensitive pregnant sense of smell, and that furthermore the furniture would “off gas” in a few days. However, months later, the furniture still smelled quite strongly, I came to learn that furniture made of compressed particle board can emit these toxic fumes for years. I called the retailer, who to their credit, has an excellent customer service policy and agreed to pick up the furniture and refund our money.
I decided not to mess around with my next storage system purchase and wanted only the safest products in my children’s play room. After some research I decided on the Oeuf Mini Library, made with non-toxic finishes, to store our toys in along with breathable storage bins that fit nicely on the shelves. This week the Oeuf Mini Library is our product of the week for the following reasons:
Eco Friendly! The Oeuf Mini Library is sustainably produced in Europe, made under European environment standards (quite sad our own country can’t regulate the way other countries have managed). The Mini Library is made of Baltic birch plywood and eco-medium density fiberboard which is a recyclable panel product made of wood fibers, free from harmful binders you would find in traditional particle board.
Smart Design! The Mini Library is made with varying height shelves to accommodate different size toys and books along with two storage compartments with hinged doors perfect for quick clean up storing purposes.
Safe Finishes! The Mini Library comes in two beautiful finishes, Walnut and Birch which are of course non toxic, water-based and free of VOC health hazards so your children will breathe easy, no toxic fumes here!
