“As we trend toward more and more use of cheap plastics and electronics in kids’ product, landfills are being flooded by synthetic and toxic materials. For example according to the EPA, over 179,000 tons of batteries end up in the landfills every year. That’s where Imajen Exploration Tools come in, incorporating several sustainability strategies, including making a one material product, using renewable resources, and promoting extended life usage. Unlike most toys which are made to be disposable and thrown away, Imajen tools grow with the child remaining as beautiful artifacts that are displayed or handed down to the next generation of explorers. These tools help facilitate the child’s innate creativity while connecting them to the wonders of nature.”

I’m a big fan of contemporary, Scandinavian design that doesn’t really look too modern or minimalistic. That's why I love the Ovo high chair designed by a Spanish brand Micuna. It can be used from when a child is able to sit on her/his own (so from about six months on) and up to 3 years or even more if you take the white part of legs off and create one beautiful desk chair. It comes in white or navy blue and you can choose between five different colours of cushions.

It’s always hard to find kids furniture that doesn’t completely clash your style in the living room....May I introduce you to NOtoys; a new design label for children and grown-ups based here in Amsterdam. They make very cool Anymal chalkboard furniture, which includes little stools and a table, which - turned around - can be used as a bench as well. And very important : they use materials that have been produced as sustainable as possible. Ok kiddos, go ahead, you can draw and paint on the furniture!
