Styles of a girls vanity table are as varied as a girl herself. Designs for glamor gals and starlets abound, featuring lights, mirrors and other fancies to make one feel almost famous. Another girl may like old fashioned chic, with frills and decorative accents. Still another may like the clean finish of a stainless steel design or a traditional wood finish. The younger set may prefer a plastic dress up space, created with molded designs based on favorite television or film heroine. Sometimes featuring a heart shaped mirror or flower shaped chair, a little girl can dream of beloved princesses and the day she will save the day with her strong mind and body. Encouraging the minds of little ones makes for healthy and happy children. Why not encourage a girl to think she can take on the world! Sitting in front of a dress up table can take a girl on a journey of a lifetime, without even leaving her room.
Beyond the mirror and quaint little chair, a girls vanity set can be so much more. It allows for personal growth, a gentle place to sit and consider a day, to remember special moments. Imagination will sore and a sense of self can be had. Imagining life as a grown up offers a positive play scenario, whether it is pretending to write mommy’s grocery list, or pretending to put on lipstick. As a girl gets older, the chance to write in a diary, and know that it can be safely stored in any number of cubbies or drawers, is not only powerful , but also a great exercise in journaling and self reflection. It also makes a great stand in for a desk. The size may accommodate a computer, and generally a girl can complete her homework in the space given.
Not just a place to feel pretty, it is also a wonderful place to do schoolwork and other quiet activities. A creative person can personalize her place, if allowed, by decorating with paint, glue and sparkly fun gems. A full skirt makes a beautiful and feminine statement, especially when a fabric is picked by the user. As an accent piece it can be attached or changed using stick-on type fabric strips. This is a wonderful way for a girl to show her personal style.
The numerous drawers and cubbies make for great storage. Keeping hair bands and barrettes will make getting ready for the day so much easier, and having a hairbrush and other morning items handy in one spot will make school mornings less hectic. As a great place to put school books, it is a great organizational tool. A child likes to have supplies of their own, for whatever they fancy. A little craftsperson will appreciate having items such as scissors and glue nearby, and a small cubby or drawer is the perfect place to keep them. A budding journalist will have her writing tools nearby when she thinks of a story idea. For the traditional user, a well located lipstick that is easily reached, for dress up play or another use, is not to be underestimated.
The investment in a child’s imagination is priceless. Regardless of age, no matter the use, a vanity table is a great piece in a child’s room. For perfumes or pretties, pink and black vanity tables for girls are a great treasure. No dreams can be diminished while gazing upon such an object of girlhood. Coveted by many, it will be a part of a girl’s memories for years to come.
