If I didn’t have a pesky cold this week, I’d be taking the kids to the beach tomorrow.  Maybe next week?

Play Kitchen Bamboo from North Forty Design

You know how sometimes you’ve been looking for something just right for a long time and you have no idea what it looks like, but then you find it and you just know?  Well, I have finally found THE modern play kitchen.

North Forty Design Play Kitchen Bamboo 1

From North Forty Design, the Play Kitchen Bamboo is a stunning open ended, modular design that can be arranged and rearranged in your home for the ultimate pretend play time.

Unfortunately, “ultimate” usually comes with a matching price tag.  As shown, the kitchen combination is $1300.  There is also a birch version for $900, and the pieces can be purchased separately as well.

Also worthy of mention from North Forty Design is the Framehouse.  This open structure is made of FSC White Oak and can be used in any number of ways.

This retails for $725.  Inspiring, no?

Etsy Finds: Hey There Little Red Riding Hood

There was a time when my grandmother would tell my sister and I the story of Little Red Riding Hood every night. We made story time more varied by asking her to change the color of the hood, but I admit red is my favorite anyway.

Must-Have Lego Duplo for Toddlers

You may know about my fondness for Lego Duplo, okay I admit, I’m more of a fanatic!  And while it saddens me deeply that my boys have nearly grown out of Duplos, perhaps your kids will be able to enjoy these amazing sets!

I first saw these this weekend at Legoland Florida (one of my favorite places!) but you can pick these up at your local Lego store, Target, etc…

Bath time will be infinitely more awesome with Toddler Build and Boat Fun.  $20

Lego Duplo Toddler Build and Boat Fun

Unlike the previous cake set, this Creative Play Ice Cream Set is not packaged in pink and is equally suitable for both boys and girls!  Love!

Of course a “healthier” option would be the Creative Picnic Set.  So much fun to be had with these!

Put these or any other Duplo sets on your gift buying list and they’re sure to be a winner.

Rich or Reasonable: Rolling Ride Ons

Toddler ride-on toys are irresistibly cute, but for sleek modern style, Early Rider‘s award winning Spherovelo is as cool as they get.

If $100 is too steep, maybe the $20 Jelly Bean Racer from Little Tikes might do the trick.

Nickster Toys

The educational toys from Nickster are colorful plastic toys with a modern aesthetic that gets my enthusiastic stamp of approval.


An additional Nickster app reinforces the skills kids practice while playing with the toys.

Coming Soon: Automoblox Work Trucks

Coming this fall from Automoblox, these larger size work trucks are bound to be the centerpieces of your Automoblox collection.  They are sized so that Original Automoblox can fit on the bed of the Flatbed Hauler.  The pieces for these three trucks will be interchangeable with each other but not with the originals.  Right now the largest Original Automoblox retail for about $50, so I’m a little anxious about the price for these large trucks (since I want them!).

Did anyone get to see these at the Toy Fair?
