Baby Book Basics

I recently received a request for my list of must-have baby books and I had to get these online for you asap. No baby should be without these classic board books. Yes, board books. I love these. They’re generally less expensive than hardcover books, prevent paper cuts and excited little hands won’t tear the pages! I call this a win, win, win situation.

These sixteen titles are a great place to start your board book library. I can tell you we had all of these. They were in heavy rotation at various times and I know many of they by heart. You will get a lot of use out of these books!

New For Fall 2016 From The Land of Nod – Part 4: The Soft Stuff

From bedding to buffalo (yes, I will show you the giant stuffed buffalo), the soft goods coming out this fall at The Land of Nod are going on your wishlist.

First the new crib bedding collections are both simple and sweet. On the simple side, the Atomic Crib Bedding and Quilt from Ampersand Design Studio features some great patterns and shades of blue.


The Rosy Cloud Flannel Crib Bedding is a super simple modern pattern in a peachy shade of pink.


On the sweet side, the Royal Hippo Bedding is cartoon cuteness and the coordinating pieces are full of wonderful textures.



And maybe it reminds me of some of my parents’ floral bedding patterns from the 70s, but the Floral Rush Crib Bedding by Sarah York is really calling to me. I love the pattern on pattern of the sheet and the skirt.


Beyond bedding, Ashley Goldberg’s Shape Up Baby Activity Mat is going straight onto my baby gift pin board.


Then there are three new stuffed animals that are additions to the Charley Harper for Nod collection. You’ve got the Snake,




and the Cardinal (also a must-buy for you St. Louis baseball fans!!).


Finally, when you cross a beanbag chair with a mattress and a sleeping bag, you get the Soft Sidekicks. There are two Soft Sidekicks coming in September, the Dog,


and the Buffalo. See, didn’t I tell you? Bedding to Buffalo.

New For Fall 2016 From The Land of Nod – Part 3: Magical Mobiles

There’s nothing quite like having the perfect mobile to round out your nursery space. One of these five new mobiles at The Land of Nod might be just what you’re looking for or may even be something you can use to inspire the entire space!

Designed by Ashley Goldberg, the Pom Pom Mobile features three strands of puffy pom poms in an incredible collection of colors.


The Royal Charm Mobile is an exclusive design by Dinara Mirtalipova that features a castle with a fairytale scene.


Also from Dinara Mirtalipova, the Seafaring Mobile features a ship rolling on the sea and a while, octopus and narwhal among other sea creatures.


The Flying Elephants Mobile by Miga de Pan includes seven handmade elephants with colorful striped pants– of course!


Finally, my favorite is this Mod Metal Mobile by Lotta Jansdotter.

New For Fall 2016 From The Land of Nod – Part 2: Fun Accessories

Sometimes all your space needs is one bold, fun accessory that really makes a colorful statement. The Land of Nod has no shortage of these and these are my new favorites for 2016.

A really cute pouf can be much more than a place to put up your feet. Check out the Cloud Pouf,


Pretzel Pouf,


Taco Pouf,


Milk Shake Pouf,


or just the plain Milk Carton Pouf.


Three amazing new Nod Chairs by Donna Wilson are my favorite designs yet. The three animals are Parrot,




and Tiger.


Another incredible new tiger is this paper mache faux taxidermy piece by Sarah Walsh.


Or you may like the alpaca instead!


Finally, two beautiful new lamps are simple and sweet. The Unicorn Table Lamp and the


Elephant Table Lamp can add some friendly fun to an otherwise neutral, sophisticated room.


I just can’t get over all the cuteness.

New For Fall 2016 From The Land of Nod – Part 1: Furniture

I just went through my catalog to see what’s new for the nursery this fall from The Land of Nod (as I do each season), and there was so much new to share that we’re going to break it down across a few posts. Here are my favorite furniture picks…

First, the new Topside nursery collection features the Topside Crib in either midnight blue or white. There’s also a 3 drawer dresser, a wide dresser, a bookcase, and for future use, a bunkbed. The pieces include lots of storage and the rope pulls make the collection really unique.

Next, the Flex 4-in-1 Sleep Collection is a convertible system that includes pieces for a crib, bassinet, storage cart and toddler bed to grow with your child as needed.


The Larkin Crib is simple but stylish. Gold powdercoat?! Yes! And look at those legs!


If you’ve been waiting for the Jenny Lind Crib in white, the time is now.


A couple new toy boxes are worthy of mention. The Stuart Toy Box was designed by Bill Eastburn and is beautiful with the cutout design on the front panel and angled legs.


The Parkside Toy Box comes in white and blue and was designed by Royce Nelson exclusively for The Land of Nod.
