Shoe-zam! Love ‘em. Available from the small fly Etsy shop.
Does anything really need to be said? I think we all secretly want to wear slippers like these to work but are afraid of the backlash. But, is there any legitimate excuse not to be wearing a pair around the house? Totally fun. Get ‘em here.
If you’re growing bored of Ugly Dolls here are a couple nice alternatives. First is the latest creation from the folks at Wry Baby (above) called Stuf (available sometime in October). The other (below) are “Aminals“, which are inspired by the drawings of children and 100% organic. Both companies are going above and beyond to be socially responsible, which makes them even cooler in our eyes.
Loving this rug for a child’s bedroom or play area. Available from Anthropologie.
I’m digging these seats made of sliced rolls of wool created by Danish designer Lene Frantzen. How beautiful would story time be if each kid had one of these to sit on. Although I must be reading the price wrong, right? They appear to be kee-razy expensive. Maybe there’s a cheaper alternative? Very cool stools too.
Check out these beautiful indoor/outdoor chairs. Attractive patio seating is hard to find so I was excited to see these. Imported from Africa and available from A&G Merch. Made out of a super durable nylon. Large – $169, Small – $99.
Some really great thinking going into the designs over at boon. If you’re not familiar with their baby gear it’s worth your time to check them out. And once you’re beyond the bottle stage, I bet that grass would feel awesome on the feet after a long day.
Just kidding. Sorta.
I’ve given several of these as gifts. I keep hoping someone will take the hint and buy one for ME! Available at The MoMA Store.
Perhaps the best seating for a child’s playroom EVER? Available from Jellio.
I don’t really need to say anything, do I? But I’m going to… This is brilliant. So simple, so smart. You can buy from Muji’s website. Although you may need a translator.
Love these beautifully designed height charts designed by Studio 1a.m..
And while we’re posting that little bit of awesomeness, it seems like an opportune time to share something else. Back in June we posted about a participatory art installation by Slovakian artist Roman Ondák at MoMA. Below is a new video featuring the artist describing his work. Pretty fun.
The Flip camera is brilliant. Particularly if you’re a new parent, you need one like you need a stroller. Seriously. You’re gonna have enough to manage that you’re won’t want to lug around a bulky camcorder, but you WILL want some of those moments documented. Making them even more convenient, they connect to your computer by way of a self-contained USB arm that snaps out with a flick of a switch.
We’re huge fans of the boys over at Fred Flare. We were happy to get to know them from living next door to their Brooklyn headquarters for nearly 7 years. You’ll love them too, promise. Check ‘em out!
Not sure my daughter needs another excuse to do something other than actually eating, but also very hard to deny this very fun idea. Get them here.
