Designed by Jaewon Kang and Sooyoung Yoo, the recycled cardboard collection is lightweight, durable, and easy to assemble. The house is $45, the desk is $18 and the chair is $15.
These are a great way to get kid-sized furniture which, lets face it, is something you only need for a short period of time. It doesn’t cost a lot, you can customize it easily, and when you’re done, just recycle it!
This seems the ideal setup for summer. The Ibiza Home from Nobodinoz will be the base for your child’s imagination. Play, lounge, read or add a play mattress and have a nap.
Mix and match your favorite roof design with Nobodinoz pillows to create your child’s picture-perfect environment.
The Ibiza structure with roof retails for $170. Mattress and cushions can be ordered separately.
I’m a Target shopper for life and you never know what cool little collections you’ll find in the store. Even with Marimekko at Target right now, The French Bull tents and sleeping bags caught my attention and could be really fun this summer!
You can also find luggage and other travel and home accessories in fun French Bull patterns throughout the store. Maybe a perfect way to send the kids to camp out at grandma’s?!
The Marimekko for Target collection has been out for a few days now but there’s still plenty of stock online and in stores. Yesterday I grabbed a black and white beach tote. I love the XL size for towels and it has multiple pockets for sunscreen and snacks. For your modern tots however, I have to point you to the play tents. After the paddleboard and bicycle, these are the most expensive items in the collection ($120), but they come in great prints and are so great used in this fun way.
This Play Tent in the Lokki Print coordinates with the other blue prints in the collection. It’s a beachy look that’s perfect for both patio and playroom.
The Teepee in the Koppelo Print is my favorite in black and white. This would be beautifully at home in so many of your modern kids spaces!
The bravest among you will choose this bright and cheerful tent in the Auringonkukka (Finnish for “sunflower”) print.
All the tents feature a bamboo frame and polyester outdoor fabric. You can order the tents online and they are in stores for a limited time.

Spring has sprung and although we happen to be experiencing some unseasonably cold temperatures here in South Florida today, it would still be the perfect day to send the kids out to enjoy some time in their KidKraft Modern Outdoor Playhouse. While there are many amazing modern styles floating around the web, most of the cool ones are DIY jobs and not all of us are quite that handy. This is the way to get that great modern style with an accessible brand at a reasonable price.
The playhouse features an attached picnic table for two, a mailbox with a flag and an outdoor grill (aka: the drive-thru window!).
While it retails for $430, you should be able to find the Honey colored version for about $360. I like the espresso finish even more but I can’t find it for sale online right now. I’d also consider getting a deal on the honey finish and painting it to match the house! That level of DIY is something I could handle.
Keep in mind that you DO have to be handy enough to assemble the house. If you’re up for even more of a challenge, check out our Pinterest board of Outdoor Playhouses.

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

We’ve been admiring Nobodinoz from afar for a long time, but their lovely collections are starting to trickle into US retailers.
Carrito Mapachito (raccoon trolley),
and a couple of their full sized play tents.
I love the color palette Nobodinoz uses. It’s fresh and modern (of course), a little bit tropical, and all goes together perfectly. I’m starting to think I should use their colors as the scheme in my new house! I can’t wait to see what else becomes available. Most of all I’m hoping to see the furniture! Who’s with me?!

Now that we’ve gotten you all excited about the furniture from The Land of Nod for fall, you’ll really flip for these new decor items. Before you read any further, you might as well just go get your credit card out.
First there are three new mobiles. The Paper Mache Mobile designed by Kim Baise features a camp theme. The Celestial Mobile is part of the Lotta Jansdotter for Nod collection, and the Teepee Mobile is a cool laser-cut design.
In case the tent options you’ve seen before didn’t match your decor, perhaps the Urban Design Tent ($130)…
…or even the Geodesic Playhouse would fit right in.
You can order these now and they’ll be shipped as soon as they’re available.

In a world full of teepee style play tents, these designs from Joyjoie stand out with their bold and fun designs.
My favorites are the ones with the woods build right in!
And then the peeking animals are really dramatic.
These ship worldwide from Sydney, Australia. Check them all out in the Joyjoie etsy shop!
