The Land of Nod Meets Charley Harper

We’ve enjoyed Charley Harper books, toys and art kits, but now The Land of Nod is bringing Charley Harper’s art and style to your home in a new way. The Charley Harper for Nod collection features home decor, accessories and bedding full of bold patterns, shapes and colors.

For the nursery, the Florida Keys bedding collection is stunning– and I’m not just saying that because I live in Florida. The collection includes a quilt, crib sheet, and changing pad cover.

Colorful pillows accent the bedding collections, but they’d be great to add to solid bedding sets as well. Take a look at the Bear, Raccoon, Ladybug Striped Sham, Ladybug, Tiger, and Butterfly throw pillows.

I’ve seen Giraffe and Flamingo growth charts before, not none as cute as these.

Finally, the Charley Harper for Nod rugs are bold and bright. These really make a statement.

Skip Hop Toddler Bedding

Expanding their line once again, Skip Hop has released three new 4 piece toddler bedding sets that coordinate with their Zoo collection and three 3 piece toddler sheet sets.  These expand the life of your Skip Hop nursery decor and bring your toddler’s favorite Skip Hop Zoo characters right to bed with them.

Owl Toddler Bedding Set

Skip Hop Zoo Bedding Ladybug and Monkey

The 4 piece sets include Owl, Ladybug, and Monkey.   The sets fit crib sized mattresses that are used in toddler beds and include a pillow sham, reversible comforter, fitted sheet and flat sheet.  The character prints on the comforters are a little more cartoony than I like for bedding, but toddlers tend to have their own opinions about things so these cartoon characters might be a good compromise to avoid other more obnoxious options… yeah, I’m looking at YOU, Dora the Explorer.

Now, the 3 piece sheet sets are fantastic prints on their own.  I especially love the banana print on the monkey set, and the red spots from the owl set are very versatile.  These retail for $30 and if you’re buying a 4 piece set, you probably want to get an extra set of these for quick bed changes.

Finally, rounding out the toddler bedding options are the zoo pillows for $20.

Skip Hop’s Huge Showing at ABC Kids Expo 2011

Skip Hop launched more new items at the ABC Kids Expo this year than they ever have at one time before.  I’m just going to share my favorites with you or we’d be here all day.

One thing in particular had the entire show buzzing…

Don’t you just love the Jonathan Adler collaboration with Skip Hop?  This exciting collection includes four patterns: Wave Multi, Flame Yellow, Chevron Blue and Nixon.  All four will be available as Duo Essential Diaper Bags ($75) and Pronto Changing Stations ($34), and the Dash Messenger Bag ($80) will be available in Chevron Blue and Nixon.  The line should be in stores in December!

The other product that had everyone at the Expo talking was the Complete Sheet.  With the bumper controversy continuing to brew, Skip Hop developed the Complete Sheet to ensure you can have all the style of a bumper without any of the risk.  Genius.

The bumper free 4-piece bedding sets include the Complete Sheet, Nursery blanket, crib skirt and an Airflow wearable blanket for $120.  The sheets and blankets can also be purchased separately and the collection will be available in November.

My two favorite sets are Chocolate Lattice…

…and Mod Dot (which is already a popular bedding pattern from Skip Hop).

They look incredible, right?

Skip Hop has also made a name for itself as one of the major players in the modern baby bath accessories market.  I love all of the new products they are releasing in the coming months.

Your first must-have item is Soapster, the adorable foaming soap dispenser.  Coming soon, he’ll be retailing for $24.

There’s also a new Yellow Ducky Spout Cover, and some fun toys like the Starfish Stay-Put Stacker, Octopus Ring Toss Fountain and the Sort + Spin Fishbowl Sorter.

These will be coming out in the next couple months.

The last thing I want to mention is the ladybug items.  To satisfy the demand for another girly character, ladybug items have been added to Skip Hop’s mealtime and Zoo pack collections.

It’s always fun to visit with Skip Hop and as usual, I came away excited and impressed.

New Combi Pod Bouncers: Bee and Ladybug

At the lower priced end of the modern baby bouncer selection, the Combi Pod Bouncer has been a popular choice for several years now. Their latest designs however, are going to be the most popular yet.   I’ve loved these ever since I saw them at ABC Kids last October.  They are finally becoming available to order on some sites and will arrive mid to late March!

These bouncers will retail for about $100.
