I’ve been meaning to introduce you to Aden + Anais’ crib sheets for a while now, so it’s high time I let you know that everyone’s favorite muslin swaddling blanket makers are selling soft and pretty bedding for babies as well. Just because your little one has grown out of the swaddle, doesn’t mean they have to give up their cozy, comfy Aden + Anais. There are nine classic muslin sheets and four organic cotton options.
The classic sheets retails for about $30 each and the organic versions are about $40 each.
While the crib bedding is a natural addition to their line, a little more curious is Aden + Anais’ newest product, the Serenity Star. This multi-tasking gadget serves as a feeding diary, sound machine, room thermometer, nightlight and clock all in a simple design that would fit in any nursery space.
For $90, I see this being a new go-to gift for baby showers! Can’t wait to check it out in person.
shopping guide: art back to school I buy modern lego nightlight nightstand recent purchases storage
leave a comment
One of the hazards of this blogging game is that I’m always shopping online for you, and every so often, I find things that I can’t resist myself. These are a few of my most recent purchases.
1- Once I spotted this I Will Never Lego print on swiss-miss, I knew I had to have it. Not sure which of my two boys will get this one, but it’s got to be in my household. I have a few days to decide before it arrives.
2- We purchased a Mini Kanken when my youngest started preschool a few months ago, and while it was the perfect size for him, the only thing that fits into it is his lunchbox. There’s no room to stuff anything else like a jacket, so I’ve just upgraded him to this Classic Fjällräven Kanken backpack in Ox Red, his color of choice.
3- Beaba’s Pixie Night Light and Lantern now sits on my son’s nightstand. It’s the perfect thing for him to grab on trips to the bathroom in the night. I just wonder how long we’ll be able to go before the Pixie gets a little smile added to his face. For now I’m hiding all the permanent markers in the house!
4- I finally purchased a Boon Stash for myself. I’ve got it hanging at my desk to store little odds and ends without taking up space on the table top. I’m very pleased!
5- Finally, speaking of my son’s nightstand, this was a recent addition as well! We needed a place for his alarm clock, books, a glass of water and of course, the nightlight, so I purchase the Ayres Nightstand from Argington to go with his Ayres bed. So far so good! And he loves the little drawer on the bottom for storing all his “valuables.”
Let me know if you have questions about any of the products!
I wish I had seen this one before Valentine’s Day. It’s hard to find great nightlights for your modern nursery but I think this one will fit the bill perfectly.
This little lovely makes a great gift.
It’s the Love You night light from Owly Shadow Puppets. Let me know if you’re getting one!
I think there were some of you out there who hadn’t ever visited booninc.com and explored their line of beautifully designed and useful products. I consider that a shocking state of affairs and I’m glad to have rectified the situation.
One of their most fun new items is the Glo nightlight and I’m excited to announce that the winner is…. Missy L. who also likes Boon’s Bug Pod.
Congratulations Missy! Your kids will love this. The Glo makes an amazing holiday gift. Some other Boon items I think would make cute gifts for kids are:

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Boon’s Glo since I first spotted it at last year’s ABC Kids Expo. This unique nightlight was one of the most fun and exciting decor accessories at the show and I knew that as soon as it came out, I wanted to share one with my readers.
The wait is finally over and Glo is ready to shine! Boon calls Glo a “color-changing nightlight with portable glowing balls” and that really sums it up. This nightlight features illuminated Glo balls that change color on the base and can be removed for play or to be taken into bed. After about 30 minutes, the light fades away.

shopping guide: art crib bedding map nightlight owl pillows trucks
leave a comment
Sigh. I don’t even know where to begin here. There is so much new and awesome at The Land of Nod (who I’m happy to have as an affiliate partner), that I truly just don’t want you to miss any of it. I’m going to have to summarize and only include my favorites, but only if you promise to go see for yourself.
1) Maps and charts
I’ve decided that once we get my youngest into a twin bed, we’re going to add one of these schoolhouse type maps in his room. There are several maps to choose from, but I’ve got my eye on “Oh, the Places You’ll Learn”. This United States Pull Down Map goes for $249.
The Periodic Table ($119) may have to go in his older brother’s room at some point as well.
The Land of Nod added some of my favorite etsy artists to their art catalog.
The Land of Nod has some great new crib bedding collections (with the same designs for kids as well).
For boys, this Construction Zone crib bedding is super fun. Designed by Winter Water Factory, this 100% organic set is exclusive to The Land of Nod. The matching throw pillows like the Digger (shown), cement mixer and bulldozer are great additions as well.
The “Wooden Shoes Optional” Crib Bedding Set is a beautiful choice for a baby girl. The pillow accessories, like the Girls Windmill Throw Pillow are adorable as well. There’s also a worm, owl and snail.
You can never have too many nightlight options so I’m excited that The Land of Nod just added two more to their catalog.
I was also really impressed with the catalog’s new format. The Land of Nod catalog is always my favorite to look through, and now it’s even better. Have fun shopping!

J. Johnson who especially loves Stokke high chairs! Congratulations and Happy Valentine’s Day! Please email me your address so we can send your nightlights right to you.
If the orange and pink combination wasn’t your thing, you may be interested in the green and blue Tooli set. I also love OXO’s Candela Zoom and Candela Roomi. They would go perfectly in my boys’ rooms!
Thanks to AllModernBaby.com for sponsoring this fun giveaway! You’ve all discovered that they have an amazing selection of brands like Leander, 3 Sprouts, Skip Hop, Olli & Lime, Offi, DwellStudio, KidKraft, ducduc, P’kolino, Nurseryworks, Melissa & Doug and so much more!

I’ve had Tooli on my mental wish list for my boys for a long time (they come in green and blue as well). These LED nightlights have no exposed electrical parts so they are perfectly safe for your little ones to walk around with. They light up as soon as they are lifted off the charging base and stay lit for 8 hours after each full charge.
To enter the Valentine giveaway and have a chance to win a set of 2 Tooli (as shown), visit our giveaway sponsor AllModernBaby.com and leave a comment telling us your favorite brand that they carry. I think you’ll be impressed with the selection!
