How do I put my Tidy Books bookcase together?
Full instructions and everything you need, apart from a screwdriver, is included in the box. We promise it's easy to do!
What materials is the bookcase made from?
Tidy Books bookcase is made from lime wood from sustainable sources and a clear or coloured lacquer finish. The letters are wooden, in shades of red, yellow, blue and green. Our products are handmade and hand finished with love! Therefore each one is original... We pride ourselves on making our products a joy to own and feel that originalities will not affect you or your children's enjoyment of our product for many years to come.
Our products are made from wood from sustainable sources, and we are working on our production to improve our stand on the environment-watch this space! Our thinking is simple; we are not into throw away items. We'd like to think that everything you buy from us will be used for a very long time, once your child doesn't need the alphabet on the bookcase, turn the panels round (you might want to knock the alphabets off for more space) and you can continue using the bookcase-Take the clock off the Tidy Box etc... our products come flat pack using minimal packaging and transport space. Not just satisfied with required standards, we are always looking to improve our production, do our best and respect the people we work with.
At last! Water-based lacquer has arrived......
After trial and error, we are now incredibly proud to tell you that Tidy Books products are now finished in water lacquer, a safe and odour free paint, pushing Tidy Books well ahead of the accepted standards on safe paints and finishes.
The water lacquer creates a beautiful natural finish for the wooden bookcases, allowing the wood grain to be just visible, and is ideal for children and allergy sufferers. It took time to develop, but in the end it’s a natural choice for Tidy Books…

Yes The Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase really does hold around 85 books - this is because the books are placed facing outward so you can fit a lot into quite a slim space!
