screen acting as a space saving solution
1. A child computer desk with a panel designed to resemble a child's
bedroom theme which includes a flush mounted monitor within the theme
panel (ie: butterfly).
2. A child computer desk with a locking door for storage of computer components.The child computer desk as defined in claim 1 will be versatile in design such that different themes can be accommodated to compliment a child's room. This panel will be painted with colors that will compliment the theme and child's bedroom.The child computer desk as defined in claim 2 will act as a space saving solution and protect the components against damage and misuse and allow parental control.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The conventional child's desks are generally rather plain in appearance with all computer components exposed increasing the possibility of damage and misuse, and not space saving.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
It is therefore the primary objective of the present invention to provide a child desk that is decorative and designed to protect computer accessories (keyboard, mouse, screen, computer, printer) from damage and misuse.
It is another objective of the present invention to provide a child desk that is versatile in design such that different themes can be accommodated to compliment a child's room.
It is another objective to construct the desk using materials (wood, laminated wood, paint, plexiglass and plastic type materials) that are durable and easily cleaned and maintained.
It is still another objective of the present invention to save space by flush mounting a computer screen in the theme panel of the desk and accommodating the need to store the other components to allow the desktop for other uses other than exclusively being used as a "computer only" desk.
The objectives, features, functions and advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood upon thoughtful deliberation of the following detailed description of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings.
