Personal Creations Review and $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Winner Comment #99 -susanlanai said... I follow Personal Creations on Twitter.  

My youngest has been able to crawl out of her crib since she was one. We tried converting her crib into a toddler bed, but she wanted nothing to do with it. So we took Kik's bunk beds apart and moved the girls into the same room. We decided that because the top bunk has bed rails on both sides, and it is actually lower to the ground than our crib, Bid would actually be safer in the big girl bed.

For the most part it was better - she didn't fall anymore. But in a big bed, Bid had much more room to roll around and often woke herself up. So we rearranged the room again - put the beds back into bunk beds - and started letting the girls sleep together. Paradise.

The only problem that we had left was finding a way for the girls to climb in and out of bed safely. We put a kiddie step stool at the bottom of their bed, but it wasn't very high and wasn't very sturdy.

We looked around for awhile but were never able to find a better solution. I was so excited when I was checking out Personal Creations and saw their wooden puzzle stools.


The puzzle stools come in plain, flower, and sports designs, and all are customizable with your child's name and preferred colors.  Because our girls share a room, we went with the Pastel Flower Name Step Stool and had them put Princess on it.

The stool is tall, thick, and sturdy, and matches the color of their bed exactly.  I also love that the stool doubles as a toy.  All of the pieces are cut out of the stool, and it is now my girls favorite puzzle.

To Buy -  Personal Creations also carries a wide variety of other home goods and personalized gifts perfect for any member of the family.  This baby blanket would be a great kids gift and the ring would be perfect for mothers day!

    1. I would love to get the Upholstered Rocker with Ottoman! I have seen a lot of these before, but this one is adorable and my son is just about the age that he could use a chair of his own.
