New Year, New Sesame Street Collection from The Land of Nod

As if the Care Bears weren’t enough to spark some nostalgia, now Sesame Street for Nod is hitting your neighborhood. I’m such a sucker for the Muppets of Sesame Street that I might have had to do a themed nursery if my kids were being born now.

Check out some of my favorites from the collection!

The showstopping Sesame Street Cookie Monster Bookcase will proclaim your love of cookies (and reading) forever. $500. You can also see the Sesame Street Wall Decal here. Order a few and create an amazing statement wall.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Bert and Ernie so I’m a little nutty for the Sesame Street Bert & Ernie Woven Wall Hangings. $39

There’s a great variety of fun Sesame Street bedding in twin sizes, toddler sizes as well as crib sets. Pick your favorite characters, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Big Bird or Oscar.

You can stick with plain bedding and just add some of these amazing throw pillows,

or even spell something out with these Sesame Street Letter Throw Pillows.

Add some seriously awesome pattern with the Sesame Street Organic Twin Sheet Set ($80), which you can mix and match with almost anything in the Sesame Street collection. You can also find the design as a floor bin, crib sheet, toddler sheet, changing pad cover, and lunch box.

Who wouldn’t love this Sesame Street Swaddle Blanket Set ($49)?

And you’ve now found the perfect Sesame Street Play Mat. $128 as shown

The fun and colorful Sesame Street Hopscotch Rug will be a playroom favorite. $250-$350

Add fun to the walls as well with the Sesame Street Sign Growth Chart. $59

The Cookie Monster and Big Bird Storage Bins are the most amazing I’ve ever seen. $59

Even if you’re not doing a Sesame Street theme, the Oscar the Grouch Hamper with Lid is totally appropriate for and kid’s room. $79

For lots of playtime fun, the Sesame Street Puppet Theater Set is incredible. The brownstone illustration is fantastic. $129

There’s lots of fun for toddlers with this graphic Sesame Street Wooden Stack and Pull Toy. $59

The finishing touch for any Sesame Street themed space is the Sesame Street Sign with Wall Hooks. $59

You can take Sesame Street on the go with you. I may put this Travel Duffel on my wish list– it’s so cute and reminds me of my childhood in the 80s. $49

And the kids can take backpacks and lunchboxes out with them. The designs are adorable, and The Count even makes an appearance in lunchbox form!

There’s so much more to explore in the Sesame Street for Nod collection so if you like any of this, please take a look. Try searching by your favorite character too. It brings up such cute results! Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, or Oscar the Grouch.

Dough Sets from Green Toys Are A New Holiday Gift Must-Have

I first spotted these at Whole Foods, and having just purchased play-dough accessories, these really jumped out at me. Quality plastic tools and molds from recycled materials will be a huge gift hit this season! Each uniquely themed set comes with 3 tubs of dough made from organic flour manufactured in a food safe facility.

The basic package is the farm themed Tools Essentials set for $20.

Then there are four additional sets for $25 each including the Cake Maker,

Meal Maker,

Race Car Maker,

and Flower Maker.

You can also purchase packs of additional dough.

Green Toys has always been a gifting favorite of mine, and these are great new additional choices that are full of fun.
