MiniParker Doll Bunk Bed from Casa Kids

If your kids are too young or you don’t have the space for a full sized bunk bed (one of Casa Kids‘ specialties), you can still enjoy Roberto Gil’s amazing design talent in this doll-sized version.  Perfect for your holiday gift giving, the MiniParker Doll Bed is designed for your favorite 18 inch dolls.

The MiniParker is inspired by the Marino Bunk Bed and the new LoLo Bunk Bed (which is incredible) and features a bunk over day bed with a built in storage box.


The bed is made up of slotted pieces of birch plywood that are designed to be simple enough for your children to assemble themselves.  Mattresses are included and personalization is optional.


$185 or $200 with name.

Here are a few of my favorite 18″ dolls that might love a bunk bed…

Holiday Gifts 2013: Play Dolls from The Land of Nod

For pretend play purposes, not much beats a loveable doll and the accessories to go along with it.  Both my boys loved their baby doll and we’ve only just gotten rid of the plastic toy stroller we had for him.  I could never getting rid of the doll, Doobie, though.

If your little girls or little boys don’t yet have a baby doll to love, these dolls and accessories from The Land of Nod will make an amazing grand finale gift this holiday season.

Play Dolls from The Land of Nod

Pick your favorite Wee Wonderful Doll ($39) and then the wooden cradle, stroller and high chair will add a world of play.

My Modern Nursery #72: Wired for Girls Sponsored by NUMI NUMI Design

I know that NUMI NUMI‘s new Wired collection is inspired by modern technology and a busy urban skyline, but what was really speaking to me this week was the beautiful natural bamboo materials and the Amber finish of the Wired Crib and Wired Changing Table.  I really did start with a more urban inspiration but scrapped it all in an effort to not distract from the design of the crib.  Instead, the coral and blue color scheme worked with the Amber color and became this fun, warm and feminine design board.

2- Astron Mid-Century Modern Pendant– $155
3- Wired Crib from NUMI NUMI Design- $1790
