Giveaway Winner

Congratulations Jenn! I just emailed you. Your friend is sure to love her new bounceRoo– what a lucky friend!

Thanks to 4moms for this fun giveaway.

Teethers from Manny & Simon

A Manny & Simon push toy is pretty much a requirement for any modern nursery (just search our archives to prove it!), so I know their teethers are going to be standard for any well equipped toy box and diaper bag.Print
We got to preview the teethers ($14) at last years ABC Kids Expo, but I really love the shakers ($24) as well.

Cloud Light from LilSpaces

There’s the cartoony cloud motif that is so popular in the kids design space and then there’s these dreamy Cloud Lights from LilSpaces.

Illuminated, they have the look of lighting in a storm cloud, one of those spectacular sights you get to experience maybe a couple times a summer for a few seconds at a time. The clouds come in two sizes for $73 – $95 each. An array of three clouds is pictured above.

Fri-yay! Giveaway

We introduced the 4moms bounceRoo a couple weeks ago but we’re going to have a little fun this week and share one with one of our readers!

aWJ0T3A7v6QCNdTq-ED8njk7BXtSS7gJ-xmbM_1UuK8_large

The bounceRoo is the only bouncer with unique vibration modes and intensity settings to help calm and soothe babies. The lightweight, portable and compact design is battery-operated and easy to collapse, making it easy to move around the house or take on-the-go. It comes with a toy mobile with three reversible toys, an easy-to-remove, machine washable seat fabric and a 20-minute automatic vibration shut off feature.

According to 4moms CEO Rob Daley, “The bounceRoo is a dramatic improvement over the traditional bouncer – the unique vibration modes offer parents a better way to soothe their baby and the sleek design is something they will be excited to have in their home.”

I would have been much more excited to have this than the $30 cartoony wire seat that we made do with! Our giveaway winner will be a bit more fortunate than myself.

Back to School

Today was our first day back to school. I thought it was early this year, but according to my Facebook feed, there were plenty of districts that have already started.

Celebrate your back-to-school (or get the little ones excited to start in the future) with this ABC Pencil Pillow from Jumping Birds. They’re still on their summer vacation but will be back any day now!

Another season– another reason to love Ferm Living. For Autumn/Winter 2015, Ferm Living Kids is introducing four new patterns with coordinating accessories.

My favorite is Rose Rabbit. Rose Rabbit bedding comes in baby, junior and adult (twin) sizes. There are pillows (rabbit and bird) as well as storage baskets, changing blankets, wallpaper, bags, etc…

Minted Home

This is blowing my mind. I never dreamed minted would get more involved in the home decor space, but as of today, welcome minted home. We already LOVE minted for art, but add their selection of designs to pillows, curtains, lampshades etc… and I’m getting giddy! With dozens of patterns and plenty of colorways, the possibilities are endless.

We use minted art pieces often in our nursery designs, and I have a feeling you’ll be seeing many of these pillows to go with them very shortly!

The minted home pillows come in five different sizes with several choices of fabric as well.

I don’t think there another place online where you can order so many beautiful custom curtains. I’ll be spending the rest of MY evening tonight shopping for curtains for our new house! There are so many different sizes patterns and colors to choose from!

The lampshades are coming soon and you can also shop for fabric to create your own fabulous accessories.
