Britain’s #1 baby brand is now available exclusively at Babies R Us in the US.
One of my favorite pieces in the Mamas & Papas collection is the Apollo Bouncer. For $100, it’s a really nice, simple bouncer option.
See it and all my other bouncer picks on buymodernbabyseats.
I’ll be featuring more Mamas & Papas items in the coming weeks so keep checking back.
One of the reasons I added buymoderndecor to my buymodernbaby guides was so that I could share the collections by ferm living. I’ve recently added their kids pillows to the list. These fun pillows fit with some of the most popular modern nursery themes and color palettes.
Posey Panda Organic Cotton Pillow
Elle Elephant Organic Cotton Pillow
Aristo Katt Organic Cotton Pillow
Mr. Frank Fox Organic Cotton Pillow
Mr. Robot Small and Mr. Robot Large
Okay- there’s a lot more but you get the idea. See their entire collection at ferm living. They also have wallpaper, wall decals, textiles and toys to coordinate with the pillow collections.
Don’t be afraid to look at their adult pillows as well. They may start in the kids’ rooms but migrate on to yours!
I’ve been waiting to post this one until the Emerson House was actually available for purchase and now the wait is over! You can now score one of these beauties from Brinca Dada (if you’ve got $300 to spare) but it might be well worth it; check out this list of amenities:
-sliding glass doors
-recessed LED lights
-non-toxic and lead-free stains and paints
Heck, I’d love to move right in!
The furniture and family are not quite ready yet. They are scheduled for this holiday season, so I’ll let you know when I see those out. Here’s a preview from Dwell.
I have added the Emerson House to my list of dollhouses on buymoderntoys so you can see it there along with the other modern dollhouses I have discovered for you to choose from.
I am a little reluctant to add this to buymodernbassinets right now because the only online U.S. retailer who I can find that carries them is out of stock at the moment, but maybe if we bug them, Abe’s Market will get some more. The Eco Cradle from Green Lullaby is a simple, elegant and green version of the often overlooked bassinet. Many families never need one, but if you think you might like a bassinet, this might be just the thing. Inexpensive and recyclable, you won’t feel badly about purchasing one to use for just a few months.
One of my favorite things about it is that you can decorate the surface however you like– after all, it’s just made of corrugated cardboard. The pieces slide together easily without any tools and the cradle can be taken apart just as easily and stored flat in a closet or under a bed.
There’s also a play version for baby dolls.
Green Lullaby also has a cardboard dollhouse, table and chair set and adorable storage boxes.
What I love about our Ikea Antilop chair is that it just blends in with the rest of the dining area. I didn’t want a frilly patterned monstrosity that screams “I’VE GOT A BABY HERE!” On the other hand, we do have a baby, and he sits at the table with the rest of his family. See?:
(Excuse the iPhone photography and ignore the crumbs on the floor)
Near the top you can see the white Antilop from Ikea. Its gray legs are similar to the chrome legs of our white dining chairs. At the bottom the 4 year old uses a Kaboost and has been using it since he was two. He LOVES it and doesn’t let anyone else near his chair! Anyway, the point is that nothing really stands out as too babyish yet we accommodate our family’s needs.
Now Ikea has another great high chair that will fit easily into the decor of many other dining spaces. Available in black and red, the Blames high chair could be just what you’re looking for. Available in stores for $60.
I’ve added this wonderful option to my list of high chairs at buymodernhighchairs.
(you can also order a Kaboost through my amazon affiliate link for just under $40)
My latest addition to buymodernbabygifts is the bgreen diaper clutch from joyababy. These are a perfect gift for any new mom. She can drop this into any bag she owns and instantly turn it into a diaper bag. It’s also easy to throw one into a glove box or stroller basket to be ready for changes whenever you’re out with baby. It’s a gift that’s as stylish to give as it is to carry.
The clutch holds 2-3 diapers and a soft travel wipe pack. The changing mat is machine washable and it’s all PVC free.
Our Children’s Gorilla has a handful of products but they are all amazingly stylish. Their A-frame modern doll house is no exception and I’ve added it to the dollhouse guide on buymoderntoys. Its simple design is ready to be filled with imagination.

My latest addition to buymodernbookcases is the Ikea Expedit. I can’t believe it wasn’t one of the first pieces I put on the list but better late than never. This is a storage dynamo that would be right at home in almost any child’s space. It is available in a variety of sizes and colors and can be styled an infinite number of ways.
In case you need more proof as to how versatile it is, I’ve compiled a gallery of Expedits used in nurseries so enjoy!
This nursery from Me and Wee is one of the most gorgeous nurseries I have ever seen.
Two toned Expedit in Baby C’s woodland nursery on Mon Petit Amour is very original.
Expedit featured in yesterday’s room tour!

My 4 yo’s room. The shelves have since been reorganized a bit but I don’t have new photos yet.
You can see more pictures on my Ikea Expedit Gallery on flickr.
Julia from the boo and the boy has another beautiful Expedit roundup so check those pictures out as well.
