I always thought soldiers are not looked after. Eggs have various choice of cups, but what about poor soldiers?Turn your kids breakfast - or yours -  into a magical kingdom. Your egg AND toast will taste so much better when served on a loyal horse and humble castle. Comes in a sweet package that includes one horse and one egg cup castle by Takae Mizutani.

Designer Ricardo Seola created this educational music toy for children, that features a train that literally plays the track. How is this possible? Well, the toy’s track is designed with small bumps like those in wind-up music boxes. Since the track is divided into sections, children can arrange them to anything they like to create or change the song. Still in the concept phase, we’re crossing our fingers (and toes) that Seola’s toy train goes into production!

Nightlights are an essential gadget for every kid’s bedroom. Hereby an original idea by Jason Hull...if you have a few old vintage cameras that are collecting dust, you might want to do what Flickr user Jason Hull has done. Jason takes vintage cameras from the 1950s and 1960s and turns them into retro nightlights. What a cool way to light up the night in a stylish flash that suits the whole family!

Xo-in my room, is a little family affair of a shop based in Barcelona. Carina Hemmings and three brothers handmake everything out of reclaimed wood, using natural products and eco-friendly processes. All the pieces are named after and inspired by their children. The style is very country and unfinished, but that’s what makes it so charming. Make sure to go check out the rest of their shop, its not cheap, but absolutely worth a visit!

Paper dolls get an ingenious upgrade with ‘Baboo’ clips by designer Shahaf Ben Abu. Baboo wooden clips project is the final project design of this Israeli industrial designer. These clips can be used to hold children’s drawings and bring them to life.
Children have the ability to create their own dolls and characters. This mobile kit is a great tool in drama therapy sessions as it works as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. The designer was born in Sderot, a town near Gaza which has been bombed by terrorist organizations since 2002. The tragedy inspired this project to treat the children of Sderot who are suffering from great post-traumatic symptoms for the past few years. The research for this project was done in collaboration with Sderot’s children. Baboo wooden clips can be used as tool to treat children who suffer from trauma, but it can also be used just like a regular game for entertainment. The materials are maple wood, beech wood, and silicone rubber bands.
