I love the look of these hand painted wooden blocks from Happy Little Folks Shop. They come in pastel colours and geometrical patterns and are made of solid fir wood, which was sustainably sourced in Europe. They’re painted with water based, non-toxic paint which is safe for children. The painted side is also covered with natural non-toxic […]
The 2015 Christmas gift guide continues with the entire BG gang hand-picking their favourite pressies. We’ve already seen Alfie and Kitty’s wishlist so now it’s over to six-year-old Lola, Claire and Phil’s first born. Lola continues to love all things small world so Playmobil and scene-scapes are always a winner. Lola’s stepped away from the vehicles she […]
The 2015 Christmas gift guide continues with the entire BG gang hand-picking their favourite pressies, plus our pick of the best books, pyjamas and stocking fillers. We’ve already seen her brother Alfie’s wish list, now it’s the turn of three-year-old Kitty, Lu and Harry’s smallest person. Kitty, three, still loves playing with her babies and […]
Seems like each year Black Friday and Cyber Monday become more of a ‘thing’ here in the UK. Our mailbox is filling up with news of offers! As they come in we will add them to this post (if we like the look of them!) so do bookmark and come back. We’ll also add any really […]
Click click peeps. There’s still a whole lot of clothing over at Love Frankie at half price. I am loving the Little Warrior romper. It’s available from 6 to 12 months up to 2-3 years and is only £14. Easy wear and cosy. Winner.
We have posted our favourite cards, gift wrap and advent calendars and hunted down 20 toys under £20 and today it’s the turn of stockings and sacks. There’s scandi, Liberty zoo prints, personalised, stars, paper and glitter… something for everyone! Do let us know what you’re hanging up this year. Doodle Christmas Stocking, £16.50, EatSleepDoodle | Vintage Deer Christmas Sack, £12.50, […]
We love a good kokeshi doll and these little beauties by Sketch.Inc for Lucie Kaas are very good indeed. Choose from a selection of fashion and design icons (think Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, Karl Lagerfeld and Ziggy Stardust) or characters such as this little spaceman. They are handpainted and varnished and make the most perfect […]
We do love getting some hot deals, especially this time of the year so as soon as I spotted the sweats and hoodies on sale at Boys&Girls I snapped one each for my two (Lola’s getting the starburst hoodie and Finn the big star applique hoody). Boys&Girls are one of my favourite brands, it washes so […]
I love this! Such a simple idea that looks fabulous. Downscale it for gift tags or cards or use an art centrepiece. It’s actually faux embroidery, made with gold and red sharpies on foam board. Get the free printable and the full instructions over at Remodelaholic.
Continuing our series where our designer chums share their seasonal secrets is Ali from The Bright Company, makers of seriously cool pyjamas. Describe your ideal Christmas Day. A relaxed day, a hearty winter walk (on the beach preferably), lots of good food, wine, games and laughter. What was your best ever present? Is it cheesy to […]
Just a reminder that we’re popping up in Brighton from tomorrow morning, with our pals The Bright Company, The Wee Department Store, Selfish Mother, Pimp My Stroller, The Collective Boutique, The Bonnie Mob and Small Print. We’d love you to come and say hello. If you can’t get over during the day, we’re having a […]
While we’re busying ourselves at the pop-up, we thought you might like to see our 2015 Christmas Gift Guide. As with last year, the entire BG gang have hand-picked their favourite pressies and we’ve also got our pick of the best books, pyjamas and stocking fillers. First up is Alfie, son of Lu and Harry […]
If you’re looking for a ride on that’s light, durable, great for even the littlest people, gentle to your pocket then we recommend you invest in a Toddlebike. It’s designed for toddlers aged 18 to 36 months and is a perfect, confidence building bridge before balance bikes. Finn LOVES the Toddlebike, it’s his go-to set of wheels and because […]
Just stop it now, please, Scandinavia. You know our weakness for vibrant prints and our wallets just can’t take another fabulous new brand. But here, straight out of Denmark, we find Mini Cirkus. Dinosaurs, cats, flamingos, swans, mice, birds and (yes, indeedy) mushrooms all feature in their collection of baby vests, rompers, leggings and tops, […]
My memories of childhood Christmasses are filled with pantomimes, ballets, shopping by fairy light and, of course, the annual visit to see the big man himself, and I like to think I can recreate that sense of wonder and excitement for Alfie and Kitty. Here are a few of our favourite ways to inject a little magic into […]
