When we were looking for a new house there were a number of “must haves”: more space, more space, room for the kids’ toys, and more space. When we first walked through our new home, Hubby and I looked at each other and smiled because we knew this house had everything we needed and more. The only problem was he saw the large, light filled room in the basement as his future man cave. You know the drill; he assumed it would be a room he could keep dark and cold, lined with comfy couches and reclining chairs that would swallow him up on the weekends as he watched every major league and college sport imaginable. Sorry, honey! Welcome to your kids’ new toy room! If Mamma can’t pee alone, you surely aren’t getting a man cave!
In our old house, the kids’ toys were creeping into every inch of our living space, and I couldn’t breathe without being assaulted by one of their toys. I was actually giddy when unpacking their new toy room.
“Look at all of these toys in ONE space! I don’t remember how to cook without a scooter, baby doll, and drum set at my feet!”
Mimi’s play kitchen and princesses fit perfectly on one side, a corner for their musical instruments, the books and art table will fit right there, and Monkey’s beloved train table and collection of cars, planes and trucks fit on the other side. I stood back and looked at my organizational masterpiece and breathed a sigh of relief.
Then five minutes later it looked like a hurricane went through the toy room, but hey, they weren’t in my kitchen so just turn off the lights and ignore the mess!
A few weeks ago I was looking around the disaster zone toy room and realized that while my kids’ personalities shine through in their favorite toys, the blank walls just didn’t do this room justice. So when Canopi and Fathead® suggested I check out the selection of kid’s wall decals, I knew this was the perfect way to make this a space of their own!
My kids would go BANANAS over any of the Disney decals, but it was Bucky, Jake, and Captain Hook that were the big winners! Since we watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates 487 times a day, I wasn’t shocked when the kids started singing the theme song when the box with the decal arrived.
Bye-bye boring beige walls! Hello Jake and the Neverland Pirates fabulouness!!! Look how amazing this decal is! It’s big, bright, colorful, and could be arranged so many ways. Talk about a statement wall! Yay hey, YES way.
To be honest, I had no idea that Fathead ® made so many different wall decals. It’s not just HUGE sports decals. One we got one up, I wanted to pick more and more. Here are the decals that other bloggers picked:
Aren’t these great? They really have a decal for everyone. Check out Beth from Arrow in the Eye. She picked the Fenway Park Skyline mural. If you are stuck in your home office, at least you have a beautiful scenery, right?
Can you believe I put the entire decal up myself? Well I did AND I had both kids running around demanding chocolate milk and snacks while I worked. So if I can put the decal up under those circumstances, you can do it too!
Seriously, head over to Fathead® and check out what they have to for you and your family! Seeing my kids burst into song and dance every time they see Bucky was so worth it, “For Real”™!
