Goodbye to The Land of Nod and Hello to Crate & Kids

The modern baby world would not have been the same without The Land of Nod and neither would this blog. From our very first posts, we’ve referred to products, many of them exclusive, from The Land of Nod, and it’s always among our first stops when we’re looking for items for any nursery design. I even placed a final order from them this week. But today, it’s official. The Land of Nod is gone and all our previous links will redirect to Crate & Kids.

For now, everything from The Land of Nod has been moved to Crate & Kids, so you should you’ll just need to change how you look for it. I hope that the magic continues to thrive under the new arrangement. Select Crate & Kids items will appear in over 40 Crate & Barrel stores starting next month, so if you’ve lived in a city without a brick and mortar location of The Land of Nod, this could be fun. I live 2 hours from the nearest Crate & Barrel, so I’m out of luck, but I’m sure I’ll be visiting Crate & Kids at least weekly.

Justina Blakeney at Pottery Barn Kids

The nursery sets from Pottery Barn Kids usually run a little too mainstream for my tastes, but this collection from Justina Blakeney is a surprise in the very best way. The Jungalino Baby Bedding is the centerpiece of the nursery set. The wonderful collection of colors and patterns includes a quilt, fitted sheet, bumper and decorative pillow.

I’m feeling the Geo Storage Basket with the bedding or anyplace in your home really. $80

I’m also really excited about the Felted Llama Mobiles as llamas are favorites at my house. $60

With the collection or on its own, the Justina Blakeney Sticks Activity Gym is a winning design. $127

Finish off the nursery design with the Ceramic Turtle Nightlight. $70

And if you want that Justina Blakeney flavor on the go, consider the Tigress Diaper Bag. It kinda reminds me of some bedding my parent had back in the 70s, and I mean that in a good way. $150

Shop this special collection while you can and check out the rest of it at potterybarnkids.com.

Project Nursery Wooster Crib

My friends over at Project Nursery have been sharing nursery inspiration for many years and now that they’ve gotten into product development, the Wooster Crib is a great new partnership. Working with Karla DuBois, they’ve come out with this modern, eco-friendly crib with an approachable minimalist design. For $400 (plus $100 for the toddler rail), I think this is going to appear in many future Project Nursery posts.

The Wooster Crib comes in Two-Toned Willow and White, Pure White, Moon Gray as well as Almond.

Lovevery Play Gym

Modern, beautiful, easy to use, organics sustainable, and easy to adapt as your child gets older. There are a few play gyms that meet some of those criteria, but none that cover them all until the Lovevery Play Gym.

 

Modern in style with wood legs, this play gym is easy to set up and comes with a variety of toys and accessories.

The side panels unfold to reveal five different development zones.

And the biggest game changer is the cover that turns this infant toy into a toddler tent.

How perfect?! The Play Gym from Lovevery retails for $140 and can be ordered via our amazon affiliate. This play gym is going straight to the top of my favorites list!

The Eames Toys

Last available for children (and adults) of the 50’s, The Toy from Eames is available for the kids of this generation. You can’t get a more Mid-century modern buildable play structure set. As the text on the box describes, The Toy is “Large-Colorful-Easy to Assemble-For Creating A Light, Bright Expandable World Large Enough To Play In and Around.”  Sounds good to me, but what is it?

The Toy includes PVC Vinyl panels, hardwood dowels, and pipe cleaner connectors. Retails for $118.

The Coloring Toy is also being reintroduced 60 years later. Sheets of card-stock along with crayons and clips allow for all kinds of artistic creations. Retails for $25.

Get creative!

Monroe Workshop Toys

The toy collection at Monroe Workshop has really expanded since I first noticed them at ABC Kids Expo back in 2015.

Josh the Lion,

Jean-Pierre the Longhorn
,

Avinash the Elephant,

and Chloe the Frog.

There’s also a goat, mustang, giraffe, chicks and a rhino. You can check them all out on Monroe Workshop Toys.

Happy Valentines Day

Hope you’re having a love-ly day!

Eames Plywood Elephant

The Eames Elephant is an icon popular in the most exclusive modern nurseries, and soon you’ll be able to get this even more exclusive plywood version. Originally designed in 1945, it was briefly available as a limited edition in 2007 in honor of Charles Eames’s 100 birthday, and the 2,000 pieces sold out quickly.

Now it looks like Vitra is making the Eames Elephant Plywood available again. This playful objet d’art can be yours for $1520.

Makes the plastic version look like a steal at $330!
