This adorable print by Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co really makes me smile. Created from an original gouache painting, it features an illustrated animal for each letter of the alphabet. I love the handmade look that feels both nostalgic and timeless. Would look gorgeous in a nursery and is the perfect aid for early learning!

At the moment, my son is a very fussy eater… I just found out about these fun transportation plates designed by Boguslaw SliwiƄski. I am not sure if it will encourage him to eat his veggies, but they sure will guarantee he will stay at the dinner table and play with them!

Design duo JamesPlumb can just create the perfect pet, no complications: the ‘Albie’ Puppy Light’ resembles a beloved pet. Oke, it is not exactly a cuddly pet, but the ‘Albie’ Puppy Light  is without doubt a unique design concept. Designers, James Russell and Hannah Plumb, create only 25 of these lights doggie wheels for a set of limited edition that has been showcased in the Tent London 3 years ago. Made of recycled materials, including reclaimed wood and old toys. Even those broken toys by our kids can still be usable and make it an important part or material of a more useful household material like the lamp!

Such a great idea: A tiny helium balloon tied with thread floats out of its box to announce the upcoming festivities! This idea, from On Hand Modern, was conceived for a first birthday party…an accordion-fold insert that so perfectly stated “tiny food and tons of fun for a little girl who is turning one…join us for scout’s first birthday party.” How adorable!

Have you heard about the Antics Ant Blocks yet? The fun never stops with these funny blocks marching four by four.... Trails of ants connect on all six sides of these sixteen blocks, forming never-ending patterns for your kids to explore.  Each set contains images of ant hills, a queen with her eggs, and a spider, the ant's nemesis. Made by Uncle Goose. So cool!

The adorable Spher­ov­elo Juno (“ball bike”) is a bike designed for chil­dren ages 12 months to roughly 2–1/2 years old. Designed to be the perfect pre-cursor to a balance bike. The stabilizing balls keep it steady for first learners, it’s fun and maneuverable and will turn in any direction. The clever thing happens though when you remove the little stabilizers – it becomes unstable and the child then utilizes their developing motor skills to balance themselves and keep it upright. Designed by the great Early Rider team. Can't wait to get one for Filippa's 1st birthday!

Here's a clever idea by Ontwerpduo; a unique piece of furniture called the Rockid. This all-in-one eco-friendly rocking chair and cradle allows you to remain hands-free while softly swinging your little one to sleep. Made from coated birch ply wood and industrial felt. When your child outgrows the cradle, you can reconstruct the Rockid into a rocking chair. Smart!
