Bedding from KidWild Collective

Formerly known as Flink, KidWild is re-branded, refreshed and full of new modern organic kids bedding options.


Crib sheets like this Trees pattern retail for $46.


I also really like the Woodland and Clouds prints!


Coordinating accessories are also available and I’m personally interested in their twin bedding though I wish there were sheets to go with these!

Bu! Blankies

If you’re looking for a really unique blanket to use as a lovey, perhaps one of these Bu! Blankies from Little Red Stuga will do the trick. They’re half blanket and half toy, perfect for nap time, peekaboo as well as pretend play.


The four designs include Teddy, Lion, Indian and Pirate. $26

Take a look at their new Panda as well! It’s totally my favorite! $29

I just love the additional layer of fun with this new mix-n-match design!


Nobodinoz Toys and Decor Now Available Stateside!

We’ve been admiring Nobodinoz from afar for a long time, but their lovely collections are starting to trickle into US retailers.

At Norman & Jules, you can currently order the Wooden Bowling Set,

Carrito Mapachito (raccoon trolley),

and a couple of their full sized play tents.

I love the color palette Nobodinoz uses. It’s fresh and modern (of course), a little bit tropical, and all goes together perfectly. I’m starting to think I should use their colors as the scheme in my new house! I can’t wait to see what else becomes available. Most of all I’m hoping to see the furniture! Who’s with me?!

Whitney Brothers Contemporary Play Kitchen

Whitney Brothers provides quality wood furniture for preschools and childcare centers, but with their GREENGUARD® Gold Certified products, sturdy construction and straight-forward design, there are many Whitney Brothers items to consider for your nursery or playroom.

My favorite Whitney Brothers collection is the Contemporary pretend play set. The mega set is the Contemporary Kitchen Ensemble which includes five components– refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, laundry unit, stove, and sink. $1185

Contemporary Kitchen Ensemble

Taking up less space and at more accessible price point, the three piece Contemporary Kitchen Toddler Combo is really enough for most. At $490, this should last for generations.

You can also buy the pieces individually and they range from $260-$270 each.

Pluto’s Secrets

If you’re like me, you’ve spent some time today searching for photos of Pluto taken during New Horizon’s flyby. Such an exciting day in astronomy! I was also excited to find a great kids book about Pluto in the library this afternoon. We brought it home and read it at bedtime. It’s a great informative book that shares Pluto’s “secret”– at least everything that has been discovered up until yesterday. The end of the book mentions New Horizon’s trip and is a great transition to talking with your kids about yesterday’s momentous event. I highly recommend finding a copy of Pluto’s Secret: An Icy World’s Tale of Discovery to share this milestone of science with your little ones!

New Toys from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

There are a few more stand-outs from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015– this time in the toy department.

How about this Byte-Size Personal Chalkboard ($25)?


The Fresh Picked Plush Produce ranges from $7 to $9 per piece (though I wish they just sold it as a complete set).


The Get Reel Fishing Game should keep them busy for a while ($50).


And their new Gobs of Jobs Activity Chart might just help manage household responsibilities in a fun way ($80).


These were my favorite of the new toys, but if you’ve never browsed their selection of toys, you’re really missing out. It’s a beautifully curated collection and you can’t go wrong with anything you purchase.

New Decor from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

Now that we’ve gotten you all excited about the furniture from The Land of Nod for fall, you’ll really flip for these new decor items. Before you read any further, you might as well just go get your credit card out.

First there are three new mobiles. The Paper Mache Mobile designed by Kim Baise features a camp theme. The Celestial Mobile is part of the Lotta Jansdotter for Nod collection, and the Teepee Mobile is a cool laser-cut design.

The Land of Nod Mobiles

I have a feeling that the Turtle Floor Bin and Owl Hamper are going to be super popular. Let me know if you get one!

Woven hampers toy box

While there is no shortage of faux taxidermy options, these forest friends designed by Gingiber are heading to the top of my list.


In case the tent options you’ve seen before didn’t match your decor, perhaps the Urban Design Tent ($130)…


…or even the Geodesic Playhouse would fit right in.


Finally, if you’re going to order just one then this season from The Land of Nod, I highly these reversible pillows– Good Morning or Hello Sunshine! They’re the perfect addition to any child’s bed.Good Morning Throw Pillow Hello Sunshine Pillow

You can order these now and they’ll be shipped as soon as they’re available.

New Furniture from The Land of Nod for Fall 2015

If you’re shopping for nursery furniture, wait! Take a look at the new collection from The Land of Nod for fall 2015 before you make your final choice!

First, designed by Bill Eastburn, the Elevate collection includes this stunning crib ($800)…


… and the coordinating 2-in-1 Elevate Dresser ($600). There’s also an Elevate Mini Crib ($500)– so perhaps the most stylish mini crib out there?


There are two new colors of Carousel Cribs– mint and blush


… and the Larking 6-Drawer Changing Table ($900) matches the mint and blush colors. It’s also available in a smaller 3-drawer version ($700 as well as as nightstand ($300).


In black or blue, the dresser is called the Primary Dresser.


I also love this Radiant Dresser made from eco-friendly mango wood. ($1300)


There are 2 new rocking chairs at The Land of Nod. First, the Everly Rocking Chair ($1900) has a vintage feel but features fresh mint leather upholstery.


The Bakersfield Rocking Chair ($600) is a lot more affordable. Inspired by a striped sweater with elbow patches, it’s going to be your favorite cozy spot.


There are also two new gliders in The Land of Nod’s lineup. The Cosgrove Swivel Glider & Ottoman ($900 & $400) features a high back with tufting and is available in this Blueberry shade as well as Gunmetal gray.


I’d probably choose this Marguerite Glider and Ottoman ($1200 and $450), made exclusively by Monte for The Land of Nod. The straight lined upholstered glider is made a little more casual with the flange edge design.


Finally, I want to point out three fun new storage pieces. It doesn’t get much more fun than the Roboshelf Bookcase ($400). I’m certain that anyone who has ever done a robot themed nursery before now is heartbroken that they didn’t have this piece in the mix.


The Venetian Bookcase is a great front facing picture book display ($250). It comes in this Azure color as well as White, Grey and Red.


Publisher’s Clear House Bookcase (ha ha ha) is a super modern acrylic bookcase or dollhouse ($400)!


Next we’ll take a look at some notable new decor pieces!
