These flash cards by Plan Toys are a great way to introduce little ones to numbers. The set comprises thick cards with pictures of animals and objects and an indentation for the corresponding wooden number. Usually retailing for over £25, it’s currently on offer from Great Gizmos for just £9.05, making it a brilliant […]
We make no secret of our love for French artist Alain Grée‘s gorgeous illustrations and we’ve been swooning over Button Books‘ editions for a while. So when Kat tipped me off that they’d teamed up with Gnu Stationery to spoil us with a range of goodies, I was super-excited. Think fabulous stamp sets, £9.99 each, invitation and thank you cards, […]
We do like Junzo Terada here on BG, so I really had to sit on my hands and refrain from buying this set of flashcards from Eeny Meeny Kids (£13.99). They are beautifully illustrated and are a great size at 15x20cm – perfect for floor play but also brilliant for using as decor items. They are […]
As a magazine journalist of many years I have a deep-seated love of the Pantone Matching System, but even I have started finding it a little ubiquitous now it appears on mugs, biscuit tins, socks and notebooks everywhere. However, one usage I do greatly approve of is the children’s book collection, courtesy of Abrams Appleseed. […]
The standout find for me at Bubble last week was Hungry Little Minds‘ flash card and block sets. This is a really original idea – all the flash cards feature architectural and design elements, so instead of A is for apple, B is for ball etc, you get A is for arch, B is for […]
These Vintage Illustrated Alphabet Flash Cards are a digital download printable for you to get creative with. I love the nostalgic vibe and three sheets of richly coloured alphabet images for £3.50 make for very economical wall art. Get them from Uncommon ARTicles on Etsy.
We’re weak for flashcards here at BG and these ABC Bilingual Flashcards by Deuz, the French duo behind Tapikid playmats are right up our street. Featuring beautiful illustrations of everyday objects and animals on recycled cardboard, they include both lower and uppercase letters and the name in both English and French. They’re that lovely, you’d […]
Etsian Gingiber does have some fabulous creations in her store – we featured the wondrous owl alphabet way back when – and these fantastic animal number flashcards are no exception. Fabulous illustrations, great colours and educational to boot. What’s not to love? About £9 (plus about £3.50 shipping from the US) for a set of […]
Small children love stationery. And so do I. So no more reasons needed for featuring cool Japanese stationery brand Midori, which I spotted over at The Journal Shop. There is so much animal gorgeousness in Midori’s collection, that I had trouble picking my favourites, but here are a few stand-outs. All under £3 – they make […]
Long time readers of BG will know that amongst the numerous things we have a thing about, flash cards are right up there – check out Lucy’s round up of funky flash cards. We’ve got the Baby Einstein animal flashcards, Eric Carle’s, some from Wee Gallery, and this excellent set on a loop by Mudpuppy. […]
Our obsession with flash cards knows no bounds, so I was mega-excited when I discovered this gorgeous alphabet set, in Wickle (a mecca for all things completely fab in Lewes with a disappointingly small selection of stock on its website – boo, hiss!) while shopping with friends. Designed by artist Lisa DeJohn (no idea why […]
I hope I’m not turning into one of those competitive mums already, but I must admit to being a total flash card geek. My poor little one patiently endured a whole half hour of me madly waving Wee Gallery’s black and white art cards (gorgeous, no?) in front of his face. The cards cost £10 […]
We’re a bit ABC obsessed here at BG, so we do get in a flutter over ABC posters and flash cards. This latest set features vintage illustrations of yesteryear, perfect for that injection of nostalgia into fun learning. £14.99 Berry Red.
