I want this and I want my kids to want this and I want to have a place to keep it. Obviously, I love the new Jetaire Camper Play Tent from The Land of Nod. $200
Paired with the The Smore the Merrier Campfire Set ($70), I can’t think of a lovelier pretend play environment. You’ve got indoor camping any day or night, regardless of the weather!
If the camping scene is too elaborate, these other new tents from The Land of Nod could be an equally exciting addition to your child’s play area. With two new teepees, three new pup tents and two shiny new canopy tents, there are going to be lots of happy children with picture perfect playrooms out there this holiday season!
A Teepee to Call Your Own (Black Stripe) $160

Coming in a few short weeks (around August 5th), Automoblox will be releasing their brand new Emergency Line of Original Automoblox. These are the larger size vehicles with the peg people inside. The new cars include a rescue truck, a fire SUV and a police car.
The new vehicles will retail for $45 to $50, which is on par with their other special edition cars. These are well worth the price for their detail, durability and play value.
The Emergency Line is destined to be a favorite part of our collection…
I can’t wait!
I just discovered these wonderful little beauties in my Facebook feed this evening and wanted to get the word out asap. The Swoop Mini is a smaller 16″ diameter version of one of the most useful items in our house– our Swoop Bag.
Let me just tell you, I need a half a dozen of these pronto. We’re going to need one for Lego Ninjago, one for Lego Hero Factory, one each for the extra Legos floating around in each boys’ bedroom, one for one for the car, and one extra for any other small toy emergency situation that might creep up.
You can order the Swoop Mini in Red, Orange, Bubble Gum or Aquarium right now for $22.
Swoop Bags are one of advertisers but they didn’t even give me a heads up on this one!
I’ve been waiting for these new collections of Stuf to come out and here they are–
The Circus Stuf collection (Elephant, Ringmaster, Lion, Clowny)…
and the Robot Stuf (Green V26, Yellow 8, Blue X3, Red V8.2) collection…
My little one wants all the robots!
They’ve also updated their Bird Stuf with the new Owl and Greenbird.
First I have to apologize for my unexpected absence last week. I had planned to blog while on our family vacation, but apparently campgrounds are a little late to the wifi game. Go figure. I hope that those of you who followed along on our vacation adventures via twitter and Instagram enjoyed the pictures, but now we’re back to business as usual!
The first thing I have to share this week (since it’s on Kickstarter and therefore it’s time sensitive!) is The Milestones Poster. We’ve seen Chase Simmering’s work before. Her Paloma Poster is still available through Kalon Studios and her etsy shop, but this time she’s looking to Kickstarter to launch her newest work. Think of it as an artistic baby book in poster form…
This 20 x 30″ poster comes with fabric stickers to help you fill in and share baby’s milestones.
Take a look at the video to get the whole picture and then pledge $60 or more to the Kickstarter project to be among the first to get The Milestones Poster for 40% less than its retail price. So, who’s getting one?
Well, I’ve found the Modern Playhouse + Loll Designs collaboration! Meet the Loki Playhouse with Furniture Set from Room & Board. This is just what I’ve always wanted!… for my kids ;) except I do wish it didn’t cost quite as much. The set sells for $1600 and comes in seven different colors.
How do you like these new prints from Draw! Pilgrim? The pieces in this series are inspired by stories, poems, ballet & fables. (approximately $20.20)
I only wish these were bigger. I think The Tortoise and the Hare would be lovely in our family room. Tempted…
And if you want more of draw! pilgrim’s bright, fun style, just visit her blog. It’s really rad. Yup, I said “really rad.” I’m on Thanksgiving vacation here people! Give me a break. And speaking of Thanksgiving, Pilgrim’s got editable Thanksgiving placecards available to print! The procrastinators out there can be thankful for Pilgrim this year
