If you haven’t heard of Mouk, the world’s cutest travelling bear (official), where have you been? The creation of French illustrator Marc Boutavant, he circumnavigates the globe on a miniscule bicycle with his friend Chavapa and enjoys a host of adventures that explore the cultural traditions of whichever country they’re in. The illustrations are divine and now you can enjoy them on tableware and puzzles, courtesy of Petit Jour Paris.
Cooler than cool children’s boutique The Kid Who has the collection – choose from a snack box, Â£12, bowl, Â£7, tumbler, Â£4, mug, Â£5, plates, Â£5.50 each, spoon, Â£2, and, my favourite, the placemat (above), Â£5. There are also four beautiful jigsaw puzzles (see above) ranging from 24 to 96 pieces (Â£12 to Â£14) – all would make lovely presents.
