Progressive Desk Kazam
You see before you the Progressive Desk Kazam from Balouga. Like the TrippTrapp seat and the Mobo chair, this is supposed to be a piece of furniture that grows with your child, from babyhood to teenager-dom.
At first, your newly sitting-up baby will use it from floor level; eventually you can adjust the feet and use it with a toddler chair or a full-size seat. The little fixtures at the back? Well, the V-shape is designed to be a bookshelf; the 'E' shape a kind of comic-rack.
I guess I'm not wild about the look of it - not wild enough to want it in my life for the length of time that its brief would imply, anyway. And sometimes the whole 'grow with your child' thing just seems like an excuse to stick a hefty price-label on a thing. I mean, this one's over a grand. You'd want it to be sticking around for life, at that price. But I'd be interested to see it in action. How about you?
