You get the mini-version of the police, fire and rescue vehicles for $40– less than the price of one of the originals.
You can can currently get the Oekaki House Drawing Board on amazon for $64. It’s infinitely more spectacular than the “Little People” version that my children played with, and the B. Toulouse Laptrec I’ve purchased for use as gifts.
If you’re looking for stylish wooden versions of the most popular toys, this is without a doubt the one to get.
The tsumiki House Building Set is another special product from gg*.
And my 5 year old would LOVE to practice his chopstick skills with this beautiful Mame Ohagki Bean Game.
We used the Birthday Mobile in our last nursery board and I didn’t even make the connection at the time. Now I love it even more!
A quick search for alphabet-related items on our blog reveals that we absolutely love seeking out cleverly illustrated, modern designs for you. Today we feature alphabet flashcards which could easily double as gorgeous artwork for your nursery and child’s room.
Giantsuper was founded by father-of-two, Paul Lee. Paul originally illustrated the super-deluxe set of flashcards for his son when he was learning the alphabet. The cards feature modern, iconic animal designs enclosed in a beautiful, premium box.
I’m not sure that I have ever used the word ‘gorgeous’ to describe flashcards before, but I am pretty certain that these qualify for that use. They are gorgeous!
Each card has a detailed animal image in the center, with corresponding capital letter in the top left corner and animal name on the bottom right. The animals look as if they are created in origami form and they seem to hold motion on each card.
They really are incredible. Also incredible is the affordable price point.
This summer, you can enjoy the coolest toys on the beach. Kid-O is bringing us this amazing collection of Quut beach toys. Upgrade your shovel and pail with the Alto, Ballo, Cuppi, Ringo, Scoppi, and Triplet.
If I didn’t have a pesky cold this week, I’d be taking the kids to the beach tomorrow. Maybe next week?

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.
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?

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.

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
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.

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

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?
