Enjoy Your Sunny Summer at Home: Summer Camp Style

Anthropologie has you covered this summer. They have a beautiful collection of summer toys and activities to make any at-home “camp” day fun and Instagram worthy!

Start with the Mini Camper Play House (or the Ice Cream Truck Play Tent) as the backdrop for your day. $188

Activities include the Play Toys Kids Backyard Croquet Set ($48),

this beautiful Ring Toss Game from Sunnylife ($30),

and the Kids Fishing Bag Set from Moon Picnic ($58).

Finally, sit down for a little singalong with a Kala Ukulele ($48). Maybe a little youtube Ukulele lesson would be in order.

I see a picture perfect summer ahead!

Rocking Monsters

I may know of my opinion that every child should have a rocking toy of some sort, but if a rocking horse seems overplayed, there are tons of other options. We’ve covered many stylish choices but the Rocking Monsters collection by Linen Art may be the wildest. Originally presented on Kickstarter, the Rocking Monsters are now available on Amazon (and you can order via our affiliate links).

The rocking toys are easy to assemble with all the tools included. They are currently $100 plus $30 shipping and you can choose the Octopus, Shark or the Ghost.

I love the tentacles on the octopus, but I think the Shark will be the most popular.

Playsets from Hearth & Handâ„¢ with Magnolia

We first showed you the Hearth & Handâ„¢ with Magnolia items for kids at holiday time, but with Mother’s Day approaching, you’re going to want to take a look at these. Have the kids start practicing for your breakfast in bed with the Wooden Toy Breakfast Tray. $25

We always did an afternoon tea for my mom on Mother’s Day, so this Wooden Toy Tea Set is perfect as well. $30

Mother’s Day or any day, these are adorable.

zooModern Animal Friends

They’re in that sweet spot between stuffed animals and wooden toys, but if that seems odd, it doesn’t matter once you see just how cute they are!

From zooModern, choose Leo the Bear, Evan the Rabbit, Lars the Owl or Abe the Fox. ($65 each)

The zooModern animals are made from rubberwood and their jackets are wool with a metal snap. They are cuddly as well as easy to play with and made to last. If you’re looking to buy “better” instead of “more”, put these on your gift shopping list. Evan the Rabbit is going on mine!

Skip Hop Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper

I’ve never posted a jumper on the blog in all the years I’ve been doing this, but if you’re partial to a jumper over an activity center, the Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper from Skip Hop is the one I’m going to recommend for a few reasons.

First, it’s from Skip Hop so it’s got all the fun colors and familiar shapes and characters we already love. Secondly, it serves as an activity center with tons of activities, sounds, lights and toys. But most importantly, it folds flat to less than 7 inches and is super easy to hide away when you’re not using it because it’s still a big plastic contraption and no matter how cute it is, you’d rather not be tripping over it all the time.

The Jumper is coming out at the end of the month, but you can pre-order yours now or add it to your baby registry.
