Turning Bath Time Into Play Time: Lesson 1 by Sonia

If you have kids, know kids, or were once a kid, then you know that the bathroom is a very special place for little humans. In the first place, the scale of the bathroom is quite inviting for mini people--it’s a space they can own. I know this firsthand, because as a child, I was obsessed with bathrooms. Everywhere I went with my family, I insisted on paying a visit to the bathroom. I didn’t do anything in there except look around, but I came to know all the bathrooms in all the restaurants we ever went to. I could have told you which ones were clean, which ones were groovy, which ones were ordinary, and so on. Had it been a different decade, I might have developed my own app, rating bathrooms from a child’s perspective.

Spanish company Sonia acknowledges the special appeal that this small room holds for children with Lesson 1, part of their KIDS collection. Fun, funky, and educational, Lesson 1 aims to provide play time in the bathroom--and teach kids something or two about hygiene in the process.

Colorful Toy Box/Step Stool is a Great Fit for Kids Bathrooms

Lesson 1. Manufactured by Sonia.

The idea behind KIDS is as special as the design: “Smart looks, human gestures, trusting innocence, infinite spaces, endless colors.” Lesson 1 is a great example of Sonia’s philosophy, since it takes into account the needs and wants of “the little characters in house.” The cabinet offers a place for children to draw (and erase and redraw) and to display magnets (these include crazy monsters brushing their teeth). Lesson 1 comes with its own stool, a little toy box that doubles as a seat and booster. The collection also includes a tilting mirror, so kids can see themselves no matter how small they may be.

Other accessories in Lesson 1 keep essential items within reach of little hands--hanging pencil/toothbrush cups, flat shelves for shampoo and bubble baths, compartmentalized drawers for towels and rubber duckies. With Lesson 1 by Sonia, there’s no need to shrink bath furniture down to accommodate children--the KIDS line is designed specifically for munchkins, from their size to their needs (desires too)!
