Most men love a bit of space to call their own – maybe a basement den, a comfortable home office, or a garage workshop. Mancaves are found in all sizes and shapes, and men enjoy outfitting them with items they think are cool, find useful, or which provide creature comforts theyappreciate. This propensity starts young, so why not turn your little guy’s playroom into a mini-mancave, a place to get away from it all that he’ll totally love? Pre-select some items from which he can choose, so the room will have a much more personal feel to him.
When your little tiger hits the playroom, he’ll likely have some energy to burn off, so let him do it on a Harley Davidson Roaring Softail Rocker or perhaps a Retro Rocker Pirate Ship. He’ll ride through imaginary hills or crest ocean waves only he can see, and likely add plenty of sound effects for good measure. If you’ve got a cowboy theme going in the room, select the Cowboy Rocking Horse, add wall art to match, like the Rough Riders Vintage Wood Sign, full of color and action, and the Wild West Wall Clock to complete the look.
Once he’s got the ants out of his pants, he’ll be ready to relax with his favorite book, sitting comfortable in a bean bag or upholstered chair just right for his frame. Have a selection of Seuss, Dickens, Silverstein, Twain, and non-fiction titles that are educational and fun, within easy reach on the good-looking Harbor Town Bookcase and toy bin. Add a Child Recliner Chair with Cup Holder, available in Multiple Fabrics, and he’ll pass enjoyable moments cultivating his imagination and deepening his knowledge of the world around him. If you’ve got a budding athlete, opt for the Soccer Sports Chair & Ottoman in stylish black and white. Add some fun to the ceiling, and some light to the room, with the Galactic Explorer Glow in the Dark Overhead Light Fixture everyone will get a kick out of. And so your little guy knows when to emerge from his mancave for dinner or his ball game, add a splash of time-keeping zest to the wall with the Old Smokey Vintage clock, depicting a vintage steam engine.
Other mini-mancave themes that are easy to pull together include dinosaurs, jungle animals, or an education theme using items featuring maps, numbers, and the alphabet. Rockers to get you started right include the Enchanting Elephant Rocker and the Dynamite Dinosaur Rocker.
Offer him some choices, and when your son has made his selection, you’re well on your way to creating a room he will think is absolutely awesome! And your hero status will take another great leap forward!
