What I liked about the product

coat stand review in actionMost coat stands are pretty plain and boring, and a coat stand is not always the first thing you think about when choosing something suitable to hang your children’s coats on. Most parents would opt for over-the-door hooks or fixtures.

I fell in love with this coat stand as soon as I saw it! It’s such a fun thing to fix to the wall, my kids love it – especially the dog at the bottom. Phoebe has the left two hooks for her stuff and Teddy has the right two, so there’s no squabbling.

I have some road wall stickers on my son’s side of the room so this coat stand fit in perfectly with his theme.

What I didn’t like

More hooks would have been brilliant as four is quite limiting and you wouldn’t want to hang too many things on it in case it comes away from the wall. It’s pretty sturdy but just a couple more lower hooks would have been great.

The packaging also needs to be a bit more robust; the package is quite long and narrow and there are some delicate pieces on the items. My package arrived damaged; luckily the item was in perfect condition but I can see how a clumsy postman could potentially deliver a beautiful product with a few dents and bruises.

What I recommend this product?

coat stand review with TeddyYes, it’s fun and practical and appeals to both child and adult. A really good value product that keeps the room just that little bit tidier.

Here’s a picture of Teddy (also known as Spaghetti Legs) standing by his new coat stand with bed hair…the things I make my children do before school!

Is it good value for money?

In the sale it’s currently just £28 from £35. I think this is great value for money and would make a fantastic and imaginative present for a child of any age.
