10 Best: Fantastic Fox Fashion

Fox Mini Rodini

Ah, foxes. Despite their often unsavoury habits, our love affair with their image on children’s clothing continues apace. What can I say? They really are fantastic. I uncovered a glut of new foxy fashion finds… Maxomorra Foxes organic cotton One Piece, £30, KyNa Boutique. Another amazing print from Maxomorra, teamed with a mustard trim? Yes, […]

Smug toys

Smug sari

Quirky lifestyle boutique Smug is one of my favourite shopping destinations and their selection of soft toys is particularly fabulous. You’ll find an assortment of animals, including turtles, geese and polar bears, made from vintage jumpers, £35 each; sari elephants, rabbits and bears, £22 each, a crochet menagerie including super-cute Lucas the fox, £32 each, […]

Love Frankie Mr Fox lampshade

Love Frankie lampshade

Despite the recent unpleasantness in the news, we still love a fox motif here at BG and this lampshade by Love Frankie ticks a lot of boxes with its mustard and grey palette and the long-nosed, pointy eared vulpine. From £45 for a 35cm diameter – available in lamp or ceiling format. Perfect for that woodland-themed […]

Adatine linen animals


I do love a cute animal character and Adatine‘s creatures have character by the bucketload. Choose from a veritable menagerie, from narwhal to goose, all handcrafted from linen and hand-embroidered in Vilnius, Lithuania. I’m more than a little in love with the elephant with his braces and britches, top, about £20.50, and the brave little […]

Zeena cushions


Loving Zeena Shah‘s designs, particularly the bird, owl and fox cushions, from £20, which would be fantastic in a child’s room. Yes, that’s right, another owl cushion and no, I’m not apologising for it. There are also amazing printed sticky tapes and wrapping papers, ideal for Christmas. FYI, the fox is called Owen, the big […]

Inaluxe prints

Inaluxe Owl

My love of owls is such that I sometimes find myself just typing ‘owls’ into the search bar of Etsy or Pinterest of an evening. One such occasion revealed the divine Hootenanny Owl (above), a print from Inaluxe, aka Australia-based design duo Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd. This little giclee beauty is apparently getting ready […]

Cool Collab: Mibo & Coq en Pate Organic Animal Backpacks, Shoulder Bags & Giant Bibs

Mibo & Coq en Pate t-shirts, rucksacks, and shoulder bags

I’ve been a big fan of Brighton based design company Mibo’s paper animal sets so when Lu and I spotted them adorning 100% GOTS certified organic t-shirts (we featured these back in April when they landed at Shak Shuka) along with backpacks, giant bibs, and shoulder bags at Bubble the kids fashion trade show back […]

Howkapow fox cushion

Howkapow Fox cushion

I’m planning a vaguely woodland themed nursery this time around and this cushion is definitely a contender. I love the symmetry of the pattern (not to mention the awesome orange foxes). Also available in navy, the cushion is 100% linen and costs £28.50 including cushion from the treasure trove that is  Howkapow. While you’re on […]

10 Best: Foxy Finds

Fox Maileg at Sisters Guild

Foxes are fast becoming the new owls, loved by parents and little ones alike  (Alfie adores his Tootsa Macginty fox sweater), so I thought I’d round up some the foxiest finds for kids. My love for Maileg toys knows no bounds and this little fella is no exception. In fact, I’ve decided he’s going to […]
