Two hippos are joining the blabla knit dolls collection this spring– Jacques the blue sailor and Esther the purple bathing beauty (at least that’s how I’m going to describe her).
You KNOW I’ve got to be partial to Esther, even though she’s a hippo, because we Esthers have to stick together!
There’s also this adorable collection of new roly poly family rattles. I’m gonna call the little blonde one Esther too. I think we’ve got a strong resemblance.

I’m looking forward to these great new pieces from Ferm Living for spring. Royal blue and Rose are the highlighted colors for the season, and while it’s the pink for girls and blue for boys type of thing, when Ferm Living puts their spin on it, you don’t even notice.
There are new cushions, blankets, and three sets of house blocks.
You’ll be able to find these new kids pieces as well as the rest of the SS2015 collection in the US & Canada from Clever Spaces.
PhillUp is a cup and hook combination that attaches to the fridge. Your kids can get their own drink of water and then put the cup back so it’s ready to go for next time. The cups are BPA and PVC free and safe for the dishwasher.
You can encourage your child’s independence and free yourself from the chore of fetching drinks. This also solves my family’s problem of the kids leaving their cups all over the house. When they can’t find the cup they were using, they just take another one. Seriously, how do two boys use a dozen cups each day?!
Save yourself from my headache and back PhillUp on Kickstarter to get your hands on the first PhillUp hanging cups. They’re now available at the introductory pledge price of $8 for one, $15 for a set of two. There are other pledge levels that include additional Puj products and experiences so if you’re a Puj fan, go see what’s available!
Leslie Newton, one of the founders of the well-known brand timi & leslie, has recently announced news of her customizable collection of diaper bags called Newlie. Newlie has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help spread their brand and raise funds for this fresh new line.
Newlie is a “Moms-Based Business” which is designed for modern moms by modern moms. If you have ever wanted to have input into creating your perfect diaper bag, than this is the line for you. How is that possible? Each season, you help make selections for the style and then you can customize that style to fit your specific needs. I love this concept.
The first two bags in the collection are solid: The Perfect Backpack and The Everything Tote. These bags have it all; created with high-quality faux leather that is easily wiped clean, these bags are PVC-free, include a clutch purse, changing pad, interior and exterior pockets, bottle tote, key fob, and stroller straps.
The Perfect Backpack (This bag converts to both a backpack and a crossbody bag.)
The Everything Tote
All good things must come to an end, and while they’ve been around for more than 15 minutes, the Andy Warhol + Bugaboo collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation is coming to an end. The grand finale, the Retrospective Collection, is this set of four sun canopy prints (with free matching tote).
The four designs are “Globetrotter”,
Coming to select retailers in November, the canopies will retail for about $170 and will work for all existing Bugaboo models. You’ll also be able to find them at bugaboo.com starting in December.
