I became an instant fan when I saw this unusual chalkboard stool by Bloq, the range of products created by award-winning furniture designer Paul Johnson.
It’s a wooden cube stool that can also be used as a table and it’s covered with chalkboard material, which is certainly an innovative take on unleashing your child’s creativity.
It would also be great for playing games with an older child like noughts and crosses and hangman – favourites in my house but it also makes a rather cool piece of furniture.
Dimensions are 39 x 39 x 39cm and it can have castor’s added to the bottom for mobility.
Available from Bloq for Â£75, at present you have to email or call direct (0208 789 8800) to place an order, or if you’re London based, you can visit the showroom in Putney.
