Playhouses Galore with Antsy Pants

There are hundreds of wonderful tent and playhouse styles for kids and we’ve shared many of my favorites in the past, but now Target has a clever system of buildable play spaces from Antsy Pants.

The system starts with a set of poles and connectors. The sets are available in small, medium and large sizes. The small size shown below is used to create a shop like the Donut Shop or Farmers Market.

The medium set is perfect for tents, playhouses and castles, while the large set can be used for even more complex designs like the ice cream truck or pirate ship as well!

With the addition of fabric covers, the building sets can transform into any number of fun play areas like this circus tent

the amazing pirate ship

or this adorable lemonade stand.

There’s even a convenient storage container to contain all the pieces.

The Antsy Pants system is exclusively available at Target and you may want to get all the pieces you like sooner than later because you can never be sure how long they will carry this uniquely wonderful collection.

Modern Baby Gifts from Nambé

I have been known to put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to shopping for just the right gift, but for new baby or first birthdays, the baby and kids gift items from Nambé really hit the mark.

My favorite piece is the Kibo Piggy Bank. It’s a minimal and durable design by Alvaro Uribe done in a modern Stainless Steel and Acacia Wood combination.

The dining pieces make incredible gifts and you should take a look at the Kibo Toddler Flatware Set, Baby Dish and the Baby Cup as well as the Baby Nambé Feeding Set  (shown below).

Another really unique gift is the Belo First Tooth & Curl Box. Many parents save things like this, but this is the way to turn them into a really treasured keepsake.

Nursery Trend: Oversized Florals

The bold, girly trend showing up more and more in modern nurseries this year is oversized florals. This really does make decorating the nursery simple. You just keep things basic and let the walls do all the talking.

This Floral Pastel Nursery on 100 Layer Cake-let is incredible with one hand-painted feature wall.

Unique Felted Mobiles

There are theme mobiles and felt mobiles but Gulnara Kydyrmyshova does themed felt mobiles really well.

I love how the pieces hang off the large palm in the Pink Flamingo Mobile.

Owls and stars are common mobile motifs, but Gulnara’s Owls and Stars Mobile has a fresh and original look.
