An entry in the "why didn't we think of that?" category: the write on, wipe off bath accessories from Spain's Sonia help morph an adult-sized bathroom into a kid-friendly place.
Sharing a bathroom with another adult can be trial enough. Throw a kid into the mix and chaos follows: pristine surfaces are transformed with stickers and scribbles and colorful toys fight for space in an already overcrowded room. Sonia's solution: their Lesson 1 series includes a magnetic whiteboard-faced sink cabinet and footstool designed to encourage a child's natural tendency to personalize; the footstool that brings a kid level with an adult-sized sink also doubles as a place to hold bathtime toys; and, the mirror that works for an adult can be angled down to reflect back a child's face.
