Put a Spring in Your Step with Pottery Barn Kids – Spring 2013 Review

So, spring is finally here, eh? Here, on the East coast, the darned groundhog lied and the local weatherman is still calling for more snow. Despite the crazy forecasts, we still have a spring in our step and have gotten our seasonal décor all in place. It’s hard to believe that Easter is only a week away but I know two little boys that are excited for Mr. Bunny’s arrival.

This year, just as last, we’ve turned to a favorite company of ours for all of our spring and holiday needs – Pottery Barn Kids. “PBKids,” as it is often referred to in our home, has been our store of choice when it comes to just about anything, well, “kids” related. From bedroom furniture and playroom designs to children’s toys and seasonal decorations, they really do have it all. Through the years, there has always been one thing that has stood out for me and that is their spring line-up of products. This year is no different.


The Pottery Barn Kids Peter Rabbit line is a forefront of our Easter celebration. I’ve found that many Easter products, brightly colored with pinks and yellows, often appeal more towards young girls. As the mother of boys, the Peter Rabbit products stood out to me. Instead of falling into the cliché feminine colored hoopla, it appeals to everyone young and old, and of either sex. The classic storybook tale comes to life in the Pottery Barn Kids products and brings back the age-old tale of that curious little bunny.


Now, one thing that has gotten us in years past is baskets. I know that all of you know exactly what I’m talking about, too. We have all had those Easter baskets that are beautiful in the morning but, after tearing through all of the goodies and putting them to the test during one egg hunt, are trashed by the end of the afternoon. Through my own childhood, I cannot even tell you how many baskets I’ve gone through because, honestly, there have been too many to recall. After having our own children, I – um, the Easter Bunny – was determined to not allow the past to repeat itself. Of course, in their true fashion, Pottery Barn Kids has saved the day for, both, parents and bunnies everywhere. Their Sabrina Baskets have stood the test of a few rowdy egg hunts as well as being filled by an overly generous Easter Bunny. Although we have dolled our baskets up with the Peter Rabbit basket liners, you can choose from an array of designs and colors as well as personalization options.

In addition to the Peter Rabbit Easter line at Pottery Barn Kids, the full Spring 2013 collection is certainly a sight to see. The new collection offers brand new storage designs, household décor, luxurious bedding, and more! Here are a few of my favorites…
