Myland from Kid O

I’m going to call the Myland collection from Kid O the 21st century version of the beloved Little People from my childhood. They’re cute characters with fun vehicles, but the Myland toys feature lights and sounds that respond to various actions.

Myland Car Kid O

For example, the lights are activated when characters are placed in the car,

Myland Horse Kid O

and the horse makes a galloping sound when it rocks back and forth!

So far I’ve only seen the car ($40) and horse ($20) available, but keep a lookout for the Houseboat and the Seal!

I hope they continue to expand the Myland series! Can you imagine the dollhouse that could go with this?!

Plush Gifts at Anthropologie

I never miss the opportunity to browse at Anthropologie when I’m near one, and tucked in a corner somewhere in the shop there’s always a special spot filled with perfect gifts for the little ones. During my last visit, a little girl and I were admiring the Fashionable Fauna Dolls by Abigail Brown. If you want to snag one of these (or all three), I’d shop now.

And I may just have to go back and get myself an Ally Animal. An adorable alligator is just the thing for this Florida girl!

The Land of Nod Holiday Gifts Preview

I’m pretty sure that I say this every year, but if you had to choose just one store for your holiday gift shopping, The Land of Nod would be the one to pick. They assemble the best collection of beautiful, unique gifts that stand the test of time. They also work with makers and designers to develop exclusive products for the season. But I’ll quit talking about them and just show you a selection of my favorites.

First, there’s a number of fun playhouses.

The Gearhead Garage Playhouse is too fun. The Gas Pump and Speedster Sit-On are sold separately. I also like the idea of getting their Speedster Racer and/or the Fire Engine Speedster with the garage.

gearhead-garage-playhouse

The canopy playhouses are great because they add a lot of whimsy but don’t take up a lot of floor space. The new styles include the Skyhouse Playhouse Canopy, London Calling Playhouse Canopy and Woodsy Playhouse Canopy.

The Misha Lulu designed Log Cabin Playhouse is a super one that can be accessorized with Felt Stepping Stones and Leaf Welcome Mat.

There’s one other crazy new playhouse, the Monster Playhouse, but it’s a little weird for my taste so I could bring myself to post a photo of it.

In a world saturated with play teepes, the new Dip Dye Denim Teepee is a unique version worthy of note. Denim style canvas + ombre is a really cool look and the floor cushion they have to go with it is pretty as well.

If the full play tents take up too much space or if you prefer something more temporary, I love Suzy Ultman’s Hanging Around Hallway Playhouse that just hangs in a doorway or hall and included the welcome may.

Gingiber has created three unique versions of the Executive Nod Chair– Sheep, Bunny and Fox. They are like favorite stuffed animals that you can sit on.

Another soft, plush place to hang out and play is the Day Trip Plush Canoe that is part of the Camp Wandawega collection.

And if you like giant plush toys and don’t want the teddy bear from Costco, the Giant Simon Sit On or the Paleo Plush might be more your style.

You may know I have a thing about rocking horses, and the Thoroughbred Rocking Horse designed by Adam Greber is a new favorite of mine.

I love how the What’s That Stand For can transform into a great number of places for pretend play. It comes with curtains, banners and theater, produce, ice cream, drive thru and bank signs as well as a chalkboard/whiteboard sign so the kids can add anything else their imaginations come up with. This might be my #1 top must-have pick for holiday gifts.

The Future Foodie Play Kitchen Sink, Fridge and Oven form my new favorite play kitchen items. When did my kids get too big for toys like this? Oh, so unfair.

Now we did have a nice wooden workbench when the boys were little, but this If I Had a Hammer (and a Workbench) looks even cooler. With so many black and white kids rooms, this one fits right in.

My final new toy pick from The Land of Nod for the holidays is the Modular Dollhouse. It is compact, can be arranged in different combinations and best of all, comes with the furniture and dolls.

I’ll just say this, I’m a little envious of all the kids getting The Land of Nod goodies for the holidays this year. I wouldn’t be mad if you tag me in your holiday Instagram photos to show off.
