Bookcase Play & Display - A Shopkins Bedroom Part VI

Friday, November 18, 2016

This is our sixth post in the Shopkins themed bedroom series.  To start at the beginning, click here.

The projects for Miss Alli's Shopkins bedroom are nearly at an end, and so far we are very happy with the results!  The icing on the cake is the item that really kicked this adventure off in the first place... the Play & Display bookcase.

Somewhere in the world of social media we saw this gem of an idea floating around for a way to display Shopkins figures.  Incidentally, if anyone knows the original source would you please share it?  I have been trying to chase it down since I saw it nearly a year ago!

Over the past couple of years we have tried a couple of displays and organizers for the shopkins figures, but none of them seemed adequate for displaying figures across all the seasons, and then there were the playsets and other merchandise that she was amassing that needed culling as well.

We set up a Billy Bookcase from Ikea and let Alli go crazy setting it up.

I'm still on the look out for some miniature bookcases to use for displaying the figures like we saw in the inspiration picture.  But the display is working out perfectly so far.  The bookcase format allows her to play easily with the different sets and she can easily re-organize or add to her collection.  And by some miracle, the little ones seem to see this display as some kind of shrine so they have yet to completely destroy it, which is saying something.  We'll see how long that lasts though!
