I’m always on the lookout for great nightlights and the Gleam is both a projecting nightlight and a flashlight. The light cycles through a spectrum of colors and the flashlight turns on automatically when it’s removed from the base.

Nursery Collections from Bunny & Clyde

If you’re looking for something really different and unique (and understand that the price will reflect that), the nursery pieces from Bunny & Clyde may be what you’ve been looking for.

Coming to you from Ireland, these handcrafted pieces are made of solid wood. Using natural materials, each piece is unique, non-toxic and FSC certified.

The incredible Harrison Nursery Set is unlike anything you’ve seen before. With a mid-century modern inspiration, you can choose the European Ash version or the duotone Ash/Walnut combination shown below. I’m crazy about the rounded opening of the sides and the amazing v-shaped legs.

Harrison-Room-4

The Coco Nursery Set features beautiful European Ash with a painted base and box to contrast with the natural grain of the wood. The geometric detailing on the sides really makes the Coco Crib something very special. You can order the cribs (cot) and dressers (station) separately.

Coco-Room-4-e1461327839912

With additional accessories, both the Harrison and Coco cribs are designed to last by converting to attractive toddler beds and day beds as well.

Harrison-toddler-bed-12Coco-toddler-bed-1

The Rosaline Rocking Chair is designed to work beautifully with either nursery collection. You can select from ten different fabric options.

Rosaline-Rocker-31

For shipping to the US on these nursery pieces, you do need to contact the company ahead of time and get the cost.

If you like Bunny & Clyde, you may also like Kalon Studios. The Coco Crib reminds me a bit of the Io Crib.

The best toys are the simplest and Moon Picnic’s Make a Face is a pegboard puzzle that will really play with your emotions… I mean… that will let you play with emotions.

The Tooth Keeper

We’ve done tooth fairy roundups in the past, but what do you do after the tooth fairy arrives? I never know what to do with the tiny teeth. Some are in ziploc bags in my vanity drawer. Others are stashed elsewhere, I can’t even remember. I wish I had The Tooth-Keeper on hand when my boys first started losing their baby teeth so I could have kept them in order.

The Tooth Keeper comes in boy and girl versions. To find a good deal, just search for “tooth box organizer” on ebay.

MiO from Manhattan Toys

I still love the Little People of my childhood and I feel that Manhattan Toy’s MiO Collection is the wooden, modern version. The collection has an adorable car and a bus and there’s a trailer that can be used with either one.

MiO Car + 2 People

The flagship of the collection is the modern, modular dollhouse that is made up of sleeping, eating and working areas and comes with two people.

Mio Playing Eating Sleeping Working + 2 People

You can buy different modules separately like this sleeping set,

MiO Sleeping + 2 People

or the eating set.

MiO Eating + 2 People

Accessory block sets like the woodland with fox and skunk continue to expand creativity in play,

MiO Woodland Fox and Skunk

and you’d be amazed at the way you can use the camping set (think adding it to the trailer!).

MiO Camping + Bear

I’d love to collect them all and can’t wait to see what new pieces are added in the future. So much fun!
