Clearly Cool: Acrylics for Kids

Pin it button big

Using acrylic in baby and kids products is a growing trend. For cribs, it allows for more visibility both in and out. For shelves and chairs, it has a smaller visual imprint in a small or crowded room. For everything else, it just kind of looks good. What do you think, are you on board with this fad?
