From Apartment Therapy: “Your child has outgrown the crib you lovingly chose for them as a newborn - what’s next? Again and again, most of you have told us you skip a stepping stone toddler bed and opt for a twin bed that your child can use through young adulthood. You may want a bed with extra storage, a trundle option or the possibility of converting to bunk beds with a sibling down the road. And whether your style is traditional or modern, white or candy colored, there’s something here for everyone.”
Why will Parents LOVE our new "soft close" Silent System Drawers? Safety.
What kind of Drawer Closers do you have in your family? Young America announces the debut of our upgraded drawer system, the Quadro self-closing slide from Hettich, that enhances both the function and safety of our popular Mix Collectionand All Seasons casegoods (Dressers, Chests and Storage Drawers). Best of all, it’s QUIET. No more noisy slamming, bamming, house-shaking, neighborhood-quaking drawer closures.
Details, Interesting Details:
What’s Quadro? Nope, not a car or computer. It’s something better. Quadro is premium quality hardware from Hettich - an under-mount, ball bearing design that facilitates the smoothest, most even open/close possible, and its steel ball bearings are crafted to withstand years of heavy use. Many premium brands, including Sub-Zero and Viking, rely on Quadro technology to provide the optimum performance. Sound impressive? We think so too.
What’s so great about the new Young America drawer system? Featuring a 4-piece solid wood drawer box made of sustainably harvested North American hardwood with English dovetails in all four corners, our drawer system reflects a standard of American craftsmanship that is hard to find today. Young America’s upgraded drawer design includes a state-of-the-art drawer slide with Silent System technology. This unique combination of superior materials, construction and advanced engineering helps reinforce Young America’s reputation for producing safe, high-quality furniture parents can trust.
Why will parents LOVE our new drawer system? Safety. The Silent System is a soft-close function that catches a drawer, then gently and quietly pulls it shut. Silent System technology makes it virtually impossible for a drawer to slam closed, protecting little fingers from being pinched and helping to preserve peace and quiet in your home. For emphasis, peace and quiet.
One more drawer Safety Feature to be excited about. The Quadro drawer slide includes a dynamic load capacity of up to 55 pounds as well as a maximum safety extension, which limits how far drawers can be pulled out to reduce the possibility of tip-over accidents. Each Young America furniture piece with the new system also includes an anti-tip kit to further protect against your adventurous child’s attempt to climb the furniture. As always, we have your child’s - and whole family’s - safety in mind.
Bottom line? It’s an open and shut case. You can safely and quietly close these new drawers any which way you or your child prefers, so be creative.

Finding an original Father’s Day gift can be tricky. How about giving Dad something your child can 1) do for him or 2) do with him - like a car wash. Washing cars in the driveway at home is fun for the whole family on a hot summer day; it becomes a water sport if everyone enjoys getting REALLY wet.
So take a trip to the hardware store to fill a bucket for Dad complete with car wash essentials: car soap, big sponges or wash mitts, a chamois cloth, window cleaner and a squeegee. Decorate the bucket with colorful ribbons and a card with hand drawn coupons for a car washing or two. Let the suds fly - Dad will love it.
Here are a few tips on how to wash a car when Dad is not directly involved - courtesy of The Art of Manliness - to help keep the clear coat finish of his car intact:
